TRIFLEX® Windows 2.3.2
November 15, 2003
Property Update – In the component dialog, Process
Tab, the coefficient of expansion and the modulus of elasticity
did not update automatically when the process or base temperature
fields were manually changed. This has been rectified.
2. Double Click on Data File – The rather extensive
modifications made to the database interface sections of
TRIFLEXâWindows, when the code materials sections
were added, rendered the double click on data file method,
which some users use in order to initiate the program, unusable
in versions 2.3.0 and 2.3.1. This problem has been corrected.
Orientation Input – The dialog tab for entering vessel
data in the anchor component dialog has been modified to
link the input of the ‘Vertical’, ‘Horizontal’,
and ‘Skewed’ radio buttons to the vessel orientation
vector input, such that, for example, if a skewed vector
is entered it will automatically select the skewed radio
Nozzle Display – Previously the nozzle location on
Skewed vessels was displayed in the graphic representation
of the piping system incorrectly as not being attached to
problem has been corrected.
Import Format Revised – The column headings in the
Spreadsheet Import dialog have been revised to agree with
other spreadsheet data within TRIFLEXâWindows. That
the first three columns have been changed from To Node,
From Node, Component Type to Component Type, From Node,
To Node. While this may entail some changes on past input
files, it does allow direct input from a copied Input Spreadsheet
without having to rearrange
Windows Millenium, and Windows98 SE Compatibility –
The changes made to incorporate the Access 2000 database
format capability within TRIFLEXâWindows could, in
some cases result in an incompatibility with Windows 9x
operating systems, resulting in a program crash. Access
2000 format is no longer selectable from TRIFLEXâWindows
running on a Windows 9x operating system, but is still available
on Windows 2000 and Windows XP operating systems.
Stress Intensification Factors – Stress intensification
factors are now applied to all
legs of a branch connection rather than the first encountered
leg as previously done. This allows stress calculations
to be invariant with regard to the direction or sequence
in which the
piping system was coded.
Spring Hanger Designation – The spring hanger report
now designates EQUAL hanger Figure 110 springs correctly,
instead of the old designation of Figure 200.
