Quick Reference Guide Version 5

CAESAR II Software CAESAR II is an advanced PC based tool for the engineer who designs or analyzes piping systems

CAESAR II uses input spreadsheets,

extensive error detection procedures to facilitate timely operation and solution

CAESAR II is capable of analyzing large piping models,

both statically and dynamically

and rotating equipment reports combine to provide the analyst with a complete description of the piping system’s behavior under the applied loading conditions

Additional technical capabilities such as out-of-core solvers,

force spectrum analysis (for water hammer and relief valve solutions),

and large rotation rod hangers provide the pipe stress engineer with the most advanced computer based piping program available today

CAESAR II is continuously enhanced to incorporate new technical abilities,

to provide additional functionality,

and to modify existing computation procedures as the piping codes are updated

A complete list of the most recent changes to CAESAR II can be found in the Chapter 1 of the User Guide

CAESAR II Pipe Stress Seminars COADE offers seminars periodically to augment the Engineers knowledge of CAESAR II and Pipe Stress Analysis

The general seminar is held in our Houston

office and covers five days of Statics

Twice yearly we also cover five days of Statics and three days of Dynamics

These seminars emphasize the piping codes,

Custom seminars held at client locations are also available

For additional seminar details,

please contact the COADE Support staff at: seminars @coade

System Requirements CAESAR II requires Windows 2000,

minimum graphic card capability of 1024x768 resolution

However,

for more efficient usage of the software,

higher graphics resolutions are necessary

Usually any hardware capable of running these operating systems will be sufficient to run CAESAR II

For effective use of CAESAR II,

COADE recommends as a minimum configuration: 2+ Ghz processor 1+ Gbytes of RAM 1280x1024 graphics resolution or better 256+ Mbytes of video RAM Windows 2000 or Windows XP Professional Please note that Windows XP Home Edition,

Windows Vista Professional and Windows Vista Home Edition are not supported

Troubleshooting For troubleshooting and problem solving issues,

refer to the CAESAR II Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) located on the COADE Website

Code Stresses Listed below are the Code Stress equations for the actual and allowable stresses used by CAESAR II

For the listed codes,

the actual stress is defined by the left hand side of the equation and the allowable stress is defined by the right hand side

The CAESAR II load case label is also listed after the equation

Typically the load case recommendations made by CAESAR II are sufficient for code compliance

However,

CAESAR II does not recommend occasional load cases

Occasional loads are unknown in origin and must be specified by the user
