CRES staff have developed a number of software tools for specific pipeline-related engineering applications. Some of them have been successfully developed with user-friendly Windows interface for our clients.

The software tools we developed cover the following areas

  • Pipeline welding process simulations for heat transfer and thermal cycle predictions, microstructure stimulation and weld mechanical property prediction, and weld residual prediction
  • Deterministic and reliability-based engineering critical assessment (ECA) for pipeline structures
  • Strain-based design and tensile capacity prediction for pipeline constructions
  • Fatigue life prediction for pipeline integrity assessment
  • Crack mesh generation and automation of fracture mechanics analysis
