TRIFLEX®Windows 1.5.1

11 December 2000

TRIFLEX® Windows 1.5.1 Enhancements

1.      Default Setting of Input Units - This release of TRIFLEX saves the selection of the Input Units in the most recently created piping model and will present the same selection when a new piping model is started by the User.

2.      Default Setting of Output Units – This release of TRIFLEX saves the selection of the Output Units in the most recently created piping model and will present the same selection when a new piping model is started by the User.

3.      Default Setting of Modeling Defaults – This release of TRIFLEX saves the data entered by the User on the Modeling Defaults dialog in the most recently created piping model and will present the same data when a new piping model is started by the User.

4.      Flanges coded with the Delta Dimension to the Beginning Point on the Flange and no Preceding Pipe – TRIFLEX will now accept a flange coded with the delta dimension to the beginning point on the flange and no preceding pipe.  Previously, zero delta dimensions were unacceptable.

5.      Joints coded with the Delta Dimension to the Beginning Point on the Joint and no Preceding Pipe – TRIFLEX will now accept a joint coded with the delta dimension to the beginning point on the joint and no preceding pipe.  Previously, zero delta dimensions were unacceptable.

6.      Valves coded with the Delta Dimension to the Near End Flange Face on the Valve with no preceding Flange and no Preceding Pipe – TRIFLEX will now accept a valve coded with the delta dimension to the Near End Flange Face on the Valve with no preceding flange and no preceding pipe.  Previously, zero delta dimensions were unacceptable.

7.      Spreadsheet Refresh - In this release of TRIFLEX, the spreadsheet refreshes efficiently when piping properties and component descriptions are edited on the spreadsheet.

8.      WERCO Menu Item added to the Utilities Drop Down Menu – In this release of TRIFLEX, WERCO has been added to the Utilities Drop Down Menu to enable Users to bring up the program while in TRIFLEX.

9.      Activator Check Menu Item added to the Utilities Drop Down Menu – In this release of TRIFLEX, the User now has the ability to check the Activator while still in TRIFLEX.  The addition of Activator Check to the Utilities Drop Down Menu enables Users to easily check the status of the Activator while in TRIFLEX.

10. Chapter 4 of the TRIFLEX User’s Manual has been incorporated with this release.

TRIFLEX® Windows 1.5.1 Modifications

1.      Delta Dimension Entry in Bends – Previously, when a delta dimension was entered for the vector from the bend tangent intersection point, error messages were encountered when the delta dimension was zeroed out before the correct values were entered.  In this release of TRIFLEX, this difficulty has been removed.

2.      Data Entry for Bends with less than 3 Degrees Offset – Previously, when a delta dimension was entered for the vector from the bend tangent intersection point on a bend with less than 3 degrees offset, TRIFLEX generated an error message which hampered further data entry.  In this release of TRIFLEX, this difficulty has been removed.

3.      Navy Piping Code Expansion Stress Allowables – In the previous release of TRIFLEX, the data dialog prevented the selection of the Conservative Stress Allowable option.  In this release of TRIFLEX, this restriction has been removed.

4.      Temperature reflected in the Flange Loading Report - When IU1 or SI Units were selected and the User requested a Flange Loading Report, TRIFLEX displayed a value that was other than that entered by the User.  In this release of TRIFLEX, this difficulty has been removed.

5.      Torsional Stresses Calculated when the B31.3 Process Piping Code is Selected – When the User specifies that stresses are to be computed in accordance with the B31.3 Process Piping Code, TRIFLEX used the Ze for calculating the torsional stress in reducing branch connections.  In this release of TRIFLEX, the torsional stress in reducing branch connections is calculated using the Z rather than Ze.

6.      Torsional Stresses Calculated when the TBK52 Norwegian Piping Code is Selected – When the User specifies that stresses are to be computed in accordance with the TBK52 Norwegian Piping Code, TRIFLEX used the Ze for calculating the torsional stress in reducing branch connections.  In this release of TRIFLEX, the torsional stress in reducing branch connections is calculated using the Z rather than Ze.

7.      Absolute Length Calculation – In several instances when delta dimensions were entered and deleted, the absolute length calculation resulted in an incorrect value.  In this release of TRIFLEX, this difficulty has been removed.

8.      JPEG Export Capability Malfunctioned on large Piping Models - In this release of TRIFLEX, this difficulty has been removed.

9.      TRIFLEX DOS to TRIFLEX Windows Converter – When a Stress Intensification Factor was entered in DOS on an Anchor component, TRIFLEX did not handle the conversion of the data properly.  In this release of TRIFLEX, this difficulty has been removed.

10. TRIFLEX Case Selection in Print Preview and Print – The case selection of more than one load case generated inconsistent results in some cases.  Case selection has been limited to one at a time and inconsistencies have been eliminated.
