Free webinar on PASS/START-PROF – Pipe Stress Analysis Software and What’s New in 4.84 version


PASS/START-PROF provides comprehensive pipe stress, flexibility, stability, and fatigue strength analysis with related sizing calculations according to international and national codes and standards. First introduced in 1965, PASS/START-PROF combines a highly efficient solver, powerful analysis features, a user friendly GUI, an intuitive 3D graphical pre/ post-processor, and a detailed help system with embedded intelligence from generations of piping design experts.

In PASS/START-PROF users can start working immediately, with minimal experience. Companies can put PASS/START-PROF into application immediately after purchase, significantly reducing costs in time saved without compromising on the quality of end results. Even a beginner can deliver good quality pipe stress analysis using PASS/START-PROF with minimal training and guidance.

PASS/START-PROF is so smart that you need just draw the piping like in 3D modeling software and push the button “run analysis”. PASS/START-PROF user should think about piping design, not about node numbering, model creation, etc. PASS/START-PROF will tell you if your model has any problems and show where exactly. All checks are made automatically: stresses, support loads, expansion joint deformations, flange leakage, buckling, loads on springs in all operating modes, stresses in insulation, and stresses in flaws. Table cells with a problem are marked with a red color. All results can be presented in any coordinate system: global, local. PASS/START-PROF offers detailed pipe stress report with all equations that was used; you can check all equations manually.

Process and piping engineers of more than 3,000 companies in many countries already use the software every day for stress analysis and design of different types of pipelines.

PASS/START-PROF has a smart, intuitive and friendly user interface and user’s manual in English, Chinese, and Russian languages.

In PASS/START-PROF everything is simple and straightforward, since you are working with modern object model. You can compose your piping using objects like pipe, bend, tee, reducer, cap, expansion joint, restraint, valve, flange, and other like in 3D modeling software. You don’t have to bother with node numbering at all; you can modify your model at any moment using copying, rotating, mirroring, node renumbering, cut, copy, paste any part of the model, add nodes, delete nodes.

To use ASME B31J in PASS/START-PROF you can just turn on the option “ASME B31J”. To model buried pipelines just select that pipe is buried. No need to convert whole model using other software.

PASS/START-PROF is successfully used in many industries:

  • Power and District Heating
  • Oil and Gas
  • Process
  • Chemistry
  • Metallurgy
  • Other Industries
