Dominik Hepp, product owner at Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions, shares how positive collaboration with users improves solutions in this new video.
“It is all about how efficiently a company can execute,” said Hepp. “Where can they increase efficiency? Where can they reduce costs? The level of competition for projects is very high out there, and they are going to be very aggressively bid. It comes down to who has the right tools.”
“You have got to listen to what your users have to say,” said Hepp. “The excitement that comes from our users at the delivery of a solution comes from their feedback. We are simply returning to them what they brought to us. It is thanks to their recommendations that we can accomplish this.”

Geoff Blumber, North American Channel Manager, Rick Allen, President of CADWorx & Analysis Solutions and Billy Rasco, Vice President of Global Sales discuss how CADWorx & Analysis Solutions is facing industry trends. They discuss topics such as such as:
- DST Computer Services acquisition,
- BRICSYS integration, and
- Facing industry trends in the oil and gas industry.
"We're very excited about the acquisition of DST, they bring with them an excellent application called pipe stress," said Allen.
"The acquisition of DST resolves our commitment to the nuclear industry," said Rasco. "Customers should feel secure in that commitment to them in that industry and they should be thankful for the the combination of GT STRUDL and DST PIPESTRESS because these two teams are highly intelligent, highly motivated and competitive teams. We will be bringing them together for future products and development, so I think it helps the future of that industry and those clients."

"We did a study on CADWorx to investigate alternate platforms to give customers options," said Allen. "Lo and behold, BricsCAD had spent considerable time to improve their API. In a relatively short period of time we were able to convert the compatibility with CADWorx"
"We are able to offer CADWorx on top of both BricsCAD and AutoCAD," said Allen. "Customers have a choice, they can run CADWorx on BricsCAD or AutoCAD. The choice in theirs."
Facing Industry Trends
"Currently, people are learning how to make money at $45-$50 a barrel," said Allen. "They are exploring and looking at technology for answers. I think the companies that adopt technology are going to have an advantage over those that don't."
Joe Harrison, product owner at CADWorx & Analysis Solutions, shares how creating cutting edge technology is possible through creating new solutions in this new video.
“Whenever you do analysis, you are pushing boundaries,” said Harrison. “You are analyzing things you don’t really have an answer for, so you have to solve those problems.”
“I get to try and solve something for a project, person or company that probably hasn’t been done before,” said Harrison. “That cutting edge technology, and that ability to bring software forward is the beggest motivation for me. I am doing things that haven’t been done before.”

Surge problems in piping systems can have devastating effects on production and safety. The consequences of a surge that is not catered for in the design of a system ranges from pipe clashes, support failures and equipment overload through to pipe rupture. It is much better to prevent this with accurate analysis than cater for the effects after the event which can be extremely costly, cause injury and damage reputation. Using the tight integration between CAESAR II and BOSfluids makes this process quick and efficient.
Join this Webinar to see a seamless workflow including:
- Importing a CAESAR II model into a BOSfluids 3D model
- The easy creation of boundary conditions for a flow simulation
- Showing/discussing the simulation results – tabular, 2D and 3D
- Exporting the simulation results (load v time) to CAESAR II to perform a dynamic time history stress analysis
- Assessment of the ‘mechanical’ analysis for consequences on code and equipment compliance
Many companies predict these loads using very conservative ‘hand’ calculations (typically the Joukowsky equation), which assumes instantaneous fluid stop/start effects. This can result in gross over design of supports and/or snubbers which can be very costly. The CAESAR II/BOSfluids interaction makes the process quick, easy and accurate via data sharing and an easy-to-use interface.
You will also see the new capabilities recently added to BOSfluids Version 5.40.
