Ple4Win´s Connection modules

 

 

The Tees & Branching module (Y) allows to specify tees and branches to the main pipeline. Tees to tees are allowed. Tees may be looped. The tees module includes a T-piece specification option including bending stiffness and stress intensification determination.
The stress intensification factors are determined according to ‘ASME B31.8’ or ‘NEN-EN 13480-3’.

 

 

With this articulated pipeline module (J) a series of internal connection joints in the pipeline can be modeled, for instance pipes connected by means of sleeve joints. Several joint types are available.

 

 

The Steel in Steel module (H). also known as ‘Pipe in Pipe (PiP)’, allows to specify a medium tube protected by a casing tube. The medium tube is supported by the casing tube by means of rollers.

 

 

This module enables the user to configure mitre bends. Where a smooth bend consists of curved elements, a mitred bend is built up of straight parts with a kink in the middle.
The stress intensification factors are determined according to the ‘TGSL-1986’ or ‘NEN 3650-1+C1:2017’.
