How do EPC’s Work Today?
Structural Engineer
Piping Designer
Pipe Supports
(Type, Loads, Location)

Pipe Stress Engineer
 “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.”

The Typical way of working as a Structural
Engineer is somewhat, if not all, Fragmented
•
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.

Problem Is Consistent Across The Plant Market
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?

Fragmented Approach
Integrated Workflow
• Engineers build 2D (LAC)
Structure/Piping models
of their project for
Analysis
• Interoperability allows the design and
engineering processes to be optimized and
efficient, as both teams share the same 3D
Modeling Environment
• Designers build a second
matching 2D/3D model to
incorporate elevations,
sections, and details
• Engineers, can import the 3D models and
supplement them with member/material
properties before proceeding with the
engineering analysis
• Engineers would reanalyze and re-evaluate
their individual design
elements, and manually
submit changes back to
the designers for updating
• Modifications to the model may/will still be
required; Real Time Design Reviews allows
project savings and efficiencies by working
with one model and eliminating duplicate
work
31 | WWW.BENTLEY.COM
• Designers/Engineers can analyze, evaluate
and perform sensitivity studies on the
integrated Structural/Piping Systems
