Introduction

Alongside the other primary outfit modelling processes pipe routing is an activity that consumes a lot of time on any project. Pipe routing in AVEVA Marine has always been one of the many strengths of the system, as the user will discover in this module.

1.1 Aim

The aims of the course are to provide the skills required to use the AVEVA Marine Pipework application in the most productive way. To introduce some of the techniques used in the other Outfitting applications. To have an understanding of Pipe sketches / Pipe isometrics, Pipe Production Information and Pipe Reports.

1.2 Objectives

2.2 Piping Specifications

In the same way that design offices have standard piping specifications for different systems or materials, AVEVA Marine has a set of specifications from which the user can choose. In fact all the components to be used in AVEVA Marine must be defined in the Catalogue and be placed in a Specification before they can be used. In the MTP there are several specifications. However for the purposes of this training the following will be used:

SP_LO

=

Lubricating Oil System Specification

This specification contains all the fittings required for the course exercises.

AVEVA MARINE (12 Series) Pipework Modelling TM-2220

2.3 Setting the Appropriate specification

The first task when building a pipe is to decide which specification the user is going to use.

Having decided on the appropriate specification, this is then set as an attribute of the pipe. Any subsequent branches will automatically be assigned with the same specification (although this can be re-specified if required).

To display the Default Specification form, select the Set Default Pipe Specification button from the Pipework Toolbar.

There is a separate design hierarchy for pipes, as shown below. In principle, each pipe element may own a number of branches. In turn, branches may own a number of piping components such as valves, reducers etc.

The difference between pipes and branches is that a branch is considered to only have two ends, while a pipe may have numerous ends, depending on the number of branches it owns.

This pipe has three ends and two branches, where the second branch is connected to the first at the tee.

This introduces another rule that although a branch only has two ends, it may own components (in this case a tee), which connect to other branches.

These simple concepts enable any number of piping configurations to be developed, and form the basis of all the AVEVA Marine Pipework functionality the user will encounter.

The position and order of the piping components below branch level determine the physical route. In AVEVA Marine the user only ever needs to consider the fittings, because the pipe that appears between fittings is automatically set (or implied) by AVEVA Marine according to the specifications of the fittings.

2.6 Pipe Creation

(Worked Example)

The following sections include a worked example which covers pipe creation, branch positioning, connecting

a branch head/tail and adding/changing components.

It is usual to create pipe elements in situ allowing the user to reference other model elements. Add the following elements into the 3D View.

2.7 Pipe Branch Heads and Tails

All branches need to have a start and end point. These can be a position in space (3D co-ordinates), the flange face of an equipment nozzle or pipe, a tee or various other points in design. Heads and tails are set up via a series of attributes that belong to the branch element.

The next stage is to create and position the fittings, which define the pipe route required. Just as on a drawing board, the user needs to decide which piping components are needed in order to satisfy the requirements of the process. The components must be arranged so that the pipe meets its design needs. However, unlike on the drawing board, the user does not need to know any fitting dimensions, as AVEVA Marine derives these automatically from the Catalogue.

To create components, the user needs to select an item from the list of fittings available from the associated piping specification. Typical fitting types are Bends, Elbows, Tees, Reducers, Flanges, Gaskets, Valves, etc. There is some intelligence built into the AVEVA Marine forms so that by placing a Valve for instance the associated Gaskets and Flanges will also be created. For all piping components, the user will need to carry out the following steps:

2.13 Adding Flange Offset Type Flanges

Slip on flanges have a flange offset value, this is the distance from the flange face to the end of the tube. For the FLOF flanges used in the SP_LO spec this value is calculated using the wall thickness parameter. The example below shows P1 would have a PDIST of 0 and P2 a PDIST of the Pipe Wall Thickness + 2mm (PWALLT(1) + 2mm).

2.14 Adding Flange Allowance Type Flanges

Flanges which require the end of the tube to be flared, deformed to form the raised face, need to have additional material to allow for the deformation process. This extra tube is the flange allowance. The value of the flange allowance is calculated using the Pipe Data Table (PDATAB). The PDATAB contains a flange allowance parameter field which allows the user to add an expression for each bore size. i.e. (10* ATTRIB PWALLT(1)), the PDATAB holds a reference to the Wall thickness table (WTHTAB)

2.17 Branch Components List Order

With equipment and structures elements that are created in AVEVA Marine, the order in which the user creates the elements is of no importance to the final result.

With piping components, the order in which they are set out, as well as their individual positions and orientations, determines the final pipe route.

To help with this a Component Position Pointer is displayed at the current element. This aids the user to determine the selection of With Flow or Against Flow on the Component Creation form. The direction and position of the Component Position Pointer is determined by the selection. This indicates the position of the new component being created.

2.19 Arrive and Leave Points

Piping components have P points (similar to those for equipment primitives).The significance of P points is two fold. First, they define the connection points, and second, they determine the branch flow through the component by means of Arrive and Leave attributes. For the reducer shown below, it can be seen that the large end is at P1 and the small end is at P2. If this component is used to increase the bore of the branch, the flow in the direction of the branch will be from P2 to P1. In order to tell AVEVA Marine the flow direction desired, the user sets two numeric attributes, Arrive and Leave, to the p point numbers desired. In this case, Arrive would be set to 2 and Leave would be set to 1. (The default is Arrive 1 Leave 2). This is included for information, as the forms and menus will handle all connections.

The Quick Pipe Routing Handle has three parts,

Extend Route Handle

Cardinal Direction Handles

Rotational Handles

This is used to extend the route in the direction indicated by the handle. These are used to change the direction of the routing to one of the cardinal directions from the current frame of reference. These allow the extended route handle to be interactively directed by the user.

This usually equates to the dotted line representation of the implied tube, where the implied tube cannot be drawn. An exception to the above could be where a pipe branch does not have specification reference set. The handle can be dragged by using either primary or secondary mouse buttons. By default the handle will move in multiples of the currently defined linear increments. If the secondary mouse button is clicked as the cursor is over the pipe routing handle, the user will be presented with a context sensitive menu. The menu will display the available options which relate to the drag.

3.4 General Use of Model Editor

If an element needs modification i.e. moving using the model editor, this can be done by selecting the element when the Model Editor is active; or alternatively clicking the right mouse button on the element to be moved, which activates a context sensitive menu from which the user can select the Model Editing option. Using the right mouse button context sensitive menu has the same affect as clicking the Model Editor button on the Model Editor toolbar

3.5 Quick Pipe Routing using Elbows - (Worked Example)

The tasks of setting up pipes, branches and components are simplified by the use of forms and menus. The main thing to remember when using the application is which specification is currently in use as a default. The course exercises and examples will illustrate different means of pipe routing by giving examples of many of the situations the user will encounter.

3.6 Pipe Routing using Bends via a Pipe Fabrication Machine - (Worked Example)

If bends are to be used instead of elbows, the zone, pipe or branch must have the BendMacReference attribute set. The BendMacReference must point to a valid Fabrication Machine World (FMWL), Fabrication Machine Group (FMGRP) or Fabrication Machine (FMBEND).

Machine Group (FMGRP) or Fabrication Machine (FMBEND). In the MTP project there is a single Fabrication

In the MTP project there is a single Fabrication Machine World, Fab_Machines which owns two Fabrication Machine Groups, Bending_3D and Bending_2D. Each of the Fabrication Machine Groups own two bending machines. This

Fabrication Machine Groups own two bending machines. This instance there may be more than one FMWL

instance there may be more than one FMWL or FMGRP to allow for different locations of the bending machines, i.e. different fabrication shops.

In order for the pipe to be bent on the bending machine the comptype attribute on the variable angle / variable radius bend must be set to VAR in Paragon. There are several criteria that can be checked to ensure the pipe can be bent, outside diameter, wall thickness and material reference. However it is not essential for wall thickness and material reference to be allowed for if they are not required. This provides the user with a flexible approach to the set up.

If the user assigns either the FMWL or FMGRP as the BendMacReference the system will apply the radius of the first bending machine in the hierarchy. For example, using the hierarchy shown above, if the user assigns the FMWL then the system will attempt to add 3D bends. In order to achieve a 2D bend either the FMGRP or FMBEND that owns the 2D data must be assigned. For this reason the structure of the FMWL should be carefully considered.

the structure of the FMWL should be carefully considered. At this stage in the work flow

At this stage in the work flow the only aim is to create a bend with the correct radius that can be bent later. The assignment of the actual bending machine that will perform the task is carried out later, see Chapter 14 Pipe Production Information

Exercise 1 - Quick Pipe Routing

In ZONE 403-PIPE create a new pipe 403_LOS-005 of 150n.b. using the SP_LO and the Primary System set to Lubricating Oil System.

Add equipment LOS1009, L.O. filter and MPS4001, Main Engine belonging to ZONE 403-EQUIP into the 3D View.

Route the pipe 403_LOS-005 between the two items, the head being at LOS1009/N1 and the tail at the MPS4001/N21. Use the Quick Pipe Routing functions with elbows as the component choice. The height of the route is to be the same as pipe 403_LOS-002. Use a combination of cursor dragging and Distance from Origin to achieve the leg dimensions up to the 45 degree bends, the remainder of the route should then be possible to complete in a single function. Ensure the BendMacReference attribute on the pipe is set to 3D_MACH_01 and convert the elbows to 3D bends where indicated. Then Save Work
