  7. How to determine fatigue from pressure cycles?

    Answer: Apologize for the inconvenience, this feature is not currently in AutoPIPE. This enhancement has been logged under (CAE-CR-3268). However, only AutoPIPE Vessel has ability to determine fatigue from pressure cycling at this time.

General Questions about Load Cases:

Q1. How to delete load cases from the model input grids?


A load case cannot be deleted from the Input grids by using Static Analysis Set dialog.

Load Cases are added to the model based on settings within specific dialog screens. The same load cases are removed from the model by making changes on the same dialog screens.


1. A Wind load case W3 is deleted from the model using the Wind dialog screen, selecting the Load case W3 and pressing the Delete button. 

Load case W3 is added and removed from a Static Analysis set by enabling / disabling the check box next to the load case on the Static analysis Load set dialog screen, shown below:
