CSiPlant is a standalone piping stress analysis program based on our SAP2000 structural software, but with a user interface and design features tailored for piping stress and structural engineers working in the process, power, pipeline, and offshore industries.

As a result of being based on SAP2000, CSiPlant inherited a number of unique capabilities not available in other older generation piping stress programs. Capabilities such as second order nonlinear P-delta analysis with large displacements, nonlinear time history cases which can consider nonlinear pipe support and nonlinear soil behavior in the dynamic analysis, unlimited path dependent load sequencing, and buckling analysis to name a few of CSiPlant’s unique advantages for more realistic analysis results. 

CSiPlant's bi-directional integration with SAP2000 provides comprehensive and reliable integration between piping stress and structural analysis for more accurate calculation of piping code stresses and reactions, with options to automatically export selected pipe support loads from the combined CSiPlant model back into SAP2000.
