PASS/START-PROF® – Renowned, one of the first world commercial piping stress analysis software.

PASS/START-PROF provides comprehensive pipe stress, flexibility, stability, and fatigue strength analysis with related sizing calculations according to international and national codes and standards. First introduced in 1965, PASS/START-PROF combines a highly efficient solver, powerful analysis features, a user friendly GUI, an intuitive 3D graphical pre/post-processor, and a detailed help system with embedded intelligence from generations of piping design experts.

PASS/START-PROF was created to be easy to use by “regular” designers without special knowledge in pipe stress analysis and/or detailed knowledge of standards.

Reduces Analysis Time, Effort, and Cost

PASS/START-PROF offers many functions that make piping model creation very quick including: group editing, quick loop addition, node point renumbering, and spring data application. PASS/START-PROF can import piping models ready for analysis from AVEVA PDMS and E3D, Caesar II, and PCF formats. Data can also be exchanged within the PASS suite and with a large spectrum of general and special purpose CAD and CAE software tools.

PASS/START-PROF is an ideal component for integration into any piping design workflow with interfaces to multiple design and analysis software tools.

Features and Advantages

Broad Applicability

Pipelines that can be analyzed include piping for: process and power, gas and oil transportation, district heating piping, hot water supply, and more. Stress, flexibility, stability, and fatigue strength analysis are performed for buried, above ground, vacuum, high pressure, high temperature, and cryogenic piping. Pipelines with various types of restraints, fittings, and expansion joints can be easily evaluated. PASS/STARTPROF also offers automatic selection of constant and variable spring supports.

PASS/START-PROF can analyze a wide range of materials used in pipelines including: steel, nonferrous materials, plastic pipes and fittings, orthotropic materials such as fibreglass, reinforced plastic, glass reinforced plastics, and glass reinforced epoxy.

The following piping types are covered:
