The Dashboard is a free tool that assists in managing the data & workflow of projects from start to finish. The Dashboard provides a Single Interface to learn how Bentley’s comprehensive products integrate together in more efficient project workflows. It also a useful Launch Pad & Web Portal for easy access to any information on Bentley’s structural products, RSS News Feeds, Be Community Blogs & Forums, SELECT software downloads, support & sales.

10 © 2010 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 10 | WWW.BENTLEY.COM How do EPC’s Work Today?  “A manual approach to managing these piping loads begins with analysis of the piping system to locate supports, guides, & anchor points.  After the analysis is complete the piping engineer sorts through the piping support reactions to find the critical cases that the supports/ structure must be designed for.  These forces are hand marked on a multiple piping isometric drawings; with one copy given to the piping designer to complete the PDS piping model, locations of pipe shoes, guides, anchor points, etc; and Another copy given to the structural engineer for designing the supporting structures.  While working in PDS / FrameWorks the structural engineer would build the structural model incorporating all the required pipe supports. To prepare the structural model for analysis the engineer must then search each isometric finding the support points and associated loads evaluate and apply them to the structural model.  “The biggest problem here is that a single process structure may have hundreds or thousands of piping isometric drawings associated with it, resulting in a vast amount of paper and manual evaluation. This is very inefficient and time consuming.”

11 © 2010 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 11 | WWW.BENTLEY.COM The Typical way of working as a Structural Engineer is somewhat, if not all, Fragmented Other Tools, Software, & Techniques Construction Documentation Structural Analysis & Design Proprietary File Formats (fragmented) Proprietary File Formats (fragmented) Industry Standards (fragmented) 3D Plant Design Pipe Stress Analysis Project Data & Deliverables

12 © 2010 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 12 | WWW.BENTLEY.COM Problem Is Consistent Across The Plant Market EPC # 2 – “There are some significant disconnects between the pipe stress and the structural engineers. When conveying information from pipe stress to Structural, we typically provide the preliminary structural steel drawings to pipe stress for them to mark up loads on it. This is extremely inefficient. Also, piping should try to get as much structural steel put onto the steel drawings so that detailing, fabrication and erection can be done in a single pass” EPC # 3 – We have some serious frustrations in the way piping designers do their work, interfacing with structural and mechanical. I know the current process is disjointed, but it is all our tools provide us.” EPC #4 - We have standard loadings that take care of the major stuff. The thing that is a killer is the special case stuff. The thermal loads and piping movements, spring supports, anchor points etc; these types of things have special details, as well as high loads. In addition, a structural engineer can’t guess where these things are going to be or what they will look like. This has to come from the Piping Engineer and we have to sort through drawings. Most of the time this info gets to structural at best just before you issue the drawings. Sometimes it is after the first fabrication release has been sent out and you have to revise the drawings.

13 © 2010 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 13 | WWW.BENTLEY.COM What if, as a structural engineer, you could receive quality data from the 3D plant model and the pipe stress model, and link these to your structural analysis and design model…  Starting with the Structural Analysis Model  …Including the Foundations (mats, pile caps, combined, pad)  …Including the Connections (gussets, moment, base plates, prequalified)  …Accounting for the various Codes (wind, seismic, load combos)  Combined with the Support information from the Pipe Stress Model  Develop the Steel/Concrete Design Documentation Deliverables... to automatically create and maintain the engineering drawings, schedules, foundation designs, connection designs, piping isometrics, and more? …How could that impact your work and bottom line? Why do we want to have Integration Across Disciplines? Why do we want to Share or have Continuity of Information?
