HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- Jan 10, 2014 -- Intergraph announced today that Paulin Research Group has released FEATools™, a software tool for finite element analysis (FEA) that links with CAESAR II to analyze components outside of code limits and improve analyses of high-cycle service conditions, producing more cost-effective designs that reduce stress on equipment and increase plant and equipment life. FEATools incorporates FEA-generated stress intensification factors (SIFs) and flexibilities for tees and intersections into CAESAR II models, allowing users to design and analyze systems with consistent safety factors to save both time and money. Linked with CAESAR II, FEATools can calculate realistic loading conditions and allowable loads on nozzles and provide a report to address these types of challenges.
In conjunction with this release, Intergraph hosted a webinar series on FEA analysis where participants could submit their CAESAR II models for review by industry experts. In light of the success of the series, Intergraph is inviting users to continue submitting their CAESAR II models for review.
