Copying and Pasting Special Reports – The Special Reports offered in TRIFLEX such as the Flange Loading Report, the Spring Hanger Sizing and Selection Report, the NEMA Report for Loading on Steam Turbines, the API Std. 610 Report for Loading on Centrifugal Pumps and the API Std. 617 for Loading on Centrifugal Compressors can now be copied into the clipboard and pasted into word processors as well as other text editors. (E2001/03/06/01)

Input Graphics Display Dialog - The Input Graphics Display Dialog has been revised to incorporate a tabbed property page that provides the User with an improved ability to map the various colors to the various piping components.

Printing the Piping Model Graphic with a Border and a Title Block – In this release of TRIFLEX, the ability to print the piping model with a border and a title block is provided.  The User can enter the desired data in TRIFLEX for inclusion in the title block. (E/2001/07/02/01)

Printing the Piping Model Graphic on Multiple Pages  – In this release of TRIFLEX, the ability to print the piping model on multiple pages is provided.  The individual pages can be connected by the User with tape or other means or can simply be shown side by side.  The User is given the option to define the number of pages (panes) horizontally and vertically that the piping model is to be displayed over.  In this manner, the User can easily obtain large colored posters representing the piping system.(E/2001/07/02/01)

Displaying the Piping Model Graphic with the Color Scale and Piping Code Values  – In this release of TRIFLEX, the ability to display the piping model with the Color Scale and the axis rosette or the triad is provided.  For any piping code for which an analysis has been processed, any of the categories of values contained in the piping code compliance report can be displayed as a function of color on the piping model and the scale showing the range of colors related to the values will also be shown.  (E/2001/07/02/01)

TRIFLEX 1.5.3 Enhancements & Modifications

Enhancements (includes all enhancements added since TRIFLEX 1.5.1) cont’d

XYZ Reference Axis – In this release of TRIFLEX, the User can place a rosette or a triad in one of the four corners.  The rosette or a triad represents the XYZ axis. When the User rotates the piping model, the rosette or triad will also rotate correspondingly. (I/2001/04/27/02;I/2001/4/19/02)

Default Joint Element Length – In previous releases of TRIFLEX, the default value for the joint length for a rigid joint entered by the User was 1 foot or 350 mm.  Based upon User feedback, we learned that Users would prefer the default value for the joint length to be equal to the absolute length of the rigid joint.  This enhancement has been incorporated. (E2001/05/15/01)

DNV 1996 – In this release of TRIFLEX, the Code Compliance Report has been expanded to include two new columns – one for the calculated longitudinal stress and the other for the longitudinal stress allowable.

OS-F101(DNV 2000) – In this release of TRIFLEX, the Code Compliance Reporting capability has been added for DNV 2000.  The code compliance report generated for the OS-F101 Code is the DNV 2000 alternative.

UKOOA – In this release of TRIFLEX, the code compliance capability for verifying compliance with the requirements of "Specifications and Recommended Practice for the Use of GRP Piping Offshore" edited by the UK Offshore Operators Association - March 1994 has been added.  The code compliance reports are available in the formatted reports as well as the spreadsheet reports.

Weight and Center of Gravity - In this release of TRIFLEX, the weight and the centroid of the entire piping model is calculated and provided for the User.

Calculation of Subsea External Hydrostatic Pressure - In this release of TRIFLEX, the User is provided with the ability to enter the density of the sea water and the elevation of the sea surface.  With this data, TRIFLEX calculates the external pressure seen by the pipe segments at various elevations beneath the surface of the sea.  When the User enters the density and the elevation, TRIFLEX will automatically adjust the User-entered internal pressure to be the resultant internal pressure and all stress calculations made in accordance with the B31.8 Piping Code will be based upon the resultant internal pressure rather than the entered internal pressure.
