There is a separate model hierarchy for pipe routing, as shown below. In principle, each pipe element may own a number of branches. In turn, branches may own a number of piping components, e.g. valves, reducers, tees, flanges, etc.

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

A pipe with three ends and two branches is shown below. The second branch is connected to the first at the tee.

This demonstrate s another piping hierarchy rule. 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 forms the basis of all existing designed AVEVA E3D pipework.

An alternative pipe configuration that still complies with these rules is shown here. In this instance the branch leaves the tee through the offline leg.

Pipe branches serve two

purposes:- They define the start and fini sh points of a pipe route (kno wn as the Head and Tail in AVEVA E3D).

 They own the piping components, which define the route.

The position and order of the piping components below branch level determine the physical route. In AVEVA E3D it is only necessary to consider the fittings, because the pipe that appears between fittings is

In the same way that design offices have standard piping specifications, AVEVA E3D has a set of specifications from which the designer can select. All the components within AVEVA E3D must be defined in the Catalogue and be placed in a Specification before they can be selected. In the Training Project there are three such specifications:

 A1A = ANSI CLASS 150 CARBON STEEL  A3B = ANSI CLASS 300 CARBON STEEL  F1C = ANSI CLASS 150 STAINLESS STEEL

These specifications contain all the fittings required for the course exercises. An important point to remember when using the application is which specification is currently being used as the default.

For the Training Project, the first letter in the pipe name represents the specification to be used. For example, the PIPE /150-B-5 PIPE /150-B-5 has the letter ‘B’ to represent the specification.

The specification letters are as follows:

- A = /A1A  B = /A3B  C = /F1C

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

The branch head is at the face of Nozzle 1 and the branch tail is at the face of Nozzle 2. The head and tail can be easily distinguished by the different symbols which can be seen when the connected element is not in the 3D View 3D View .

When a branch head and tail is initially defined, the branch will consist of a single section of pipe running in a straight line between the head and tail positions. This will appear as a dotted line between the two points unless the head and tail are aligned along a common axis and have the same bore. The presence of the dotted line indicates that the branch route is incorrectly defined.

The next step in designing a pipe is to create and position a series of fittings, which define the pipe route required. It is necessary 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 the design requirements. It is not necessary to know the dimensions of fittings as AVEVA E3D derives these automati cally from the catalogue. To create compon ents, first select an item from the list of fittings available from the associ ated piping specification. T ypical fitting types are Elbows, Tees, Reducers, Flanges, Gaskets and Valves. There is some intelligence built into the AVEVA E3D forms so that by placing, for example a valve, the associated Gaskets and Flanges will also be created.

For all piping components, the following steps will need to be

performed:- Select the component from the piping specification.  Position the component and set the orientation.

The Tube does not have to be created explicitly; it is created automatically and implied between adjacent fittings.

Piping components have P–points (similar to those for equipment primitives). The significance of P–points is two–fold. Firstly, they define the connection points, and secondly, they determine the branch flow through the component by means of Arrive and Leave attributes.

For the reducer shown below, 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 E3D the necessary flow direction, there are two numeric attributes, Arrive and Leave, which must be

set to the p–point numbers required. In this case, Arrive would be set to 2 and Leave would be set to 1. (The default is Arrive 1 Leave 2). Forms and menus within AVEVA E3D will handle all connections; however it is important to understand the concepts behind the connections .

Not all of the Modify functions are affected by the Forwards/Backwards mode. This will be clearly stated in the relevant sections

In Forwards Forwards mode the functions are performed with the direction of flow. The modification axes are positioned at the arrive of the component.

In Backwards Backwards mode the functions are performed against the direction of flow. The modification axes are positioned at the leave of the component.

This often has the result of reversing the meaning of the function, i.e. Next becomes Previous and vice versa.

The mode currently being used can be determined by which button is visible. This mode will be set until it is changed.

Pipework Modelling TM-1810 If the direction of the constrained centerline is not orthogonal, as is the case for the 45 degree elbow shown below, the Select Through Plane Select Through Plane form is displayed.

The Select Through Plane Select Through Plane form allows the selection of three possible planes using the radio buttons.

Radio button 11 will position the component through one of the orthogonal planes, at the picked position. In this case the East plane.

3.5.3.1 .1 DirecDirection tion ToolTool

The Direction Direction tool allows the indication one of the six axes to set the direction of component. For example the direction of an elbow can be set to Up Up as shown.

This will set the value in the Direction Direction textbox. Alternatively the value can be entered directly into the textbox.

The default orientation for the current form can be changed from the right click menu. Howev er if the form is initia lised again the orientation will be reset to the default.

To permanently set the default orientation the Piping Settings form needs to be used, see section 3.17.3 for details.

Clicking one of the planes will change the appearance of the tool allowing a more specific direction to be selected. The result of this does depend upon the srcinal orientation of the component.

To return to the default directional appearance, to allow the selection of another plane click the Default Default DirecDirectiontion button or press the Escape Escape key.

3.5.3..3.2 2 RotRotatiation on TooTooll

To access the Rotation Rotation tool click on the Rotate Compone Rotate Componentnt button. This allows the rotation of the component to be modified.

The appearance of the tool is dependent upon the type of component that has been selected.

When the tool is activated an aid is added to the 3D View 3D View which shows the angle values. These are always incremental angles with 0 degrees being the starting position of the component.

Positioning the cursor over the angle selection on the form will result in the arc of rotation being included in the 3D View

3D View .

Clicking the angle will modify the component as shown.

The Rotation Rotation tool can also be applied to other component types. The appearance of the gadget will change depending upon the object being rotated as shown here for a valve.

The Direction Direction functions first orientate the component so

that:- In Forwards Forwards mode the arrive of the component is in the opposite direction to the leave of the previous.

 In Backwards Backwards mode the leave of the component is in the opposite direction to the arrive of the next.

This orientation is performed before the direction of the leave ( ForwardsForwards) or arrive ( BackwardsBackwards) is changed. The position of the component is not altered.

Consequently the Direction Direction functions might have unexpected results

if:- The arrive of the component is not orientated to the leave of the previous in Forwards Forwards mode.  The leave of the component is not orientated to the arrive of the next in Backwards Backwards mode. (The above situations are usually instantly recognisable because there will be no implied tube at the arrive

3.5.3.3 .3 RotatRotation Toion Tool with Fol with Flangelanged Compd Componentonentss

For flanged components the Rotation

Rotation tool uses the bolt hole positions to determine the angles by default. In this case there are 12 holes in the flange allowing rotations of 30 degree increments.

In this case the valve has been rotated but the flanges have remained in the srcin al position. The valve rotation is constrained to the angle determined by the bolt hole positions.

To turn off the constrained bolt hole rotation, click the Change Change To

To DeDefafaulult t AAnglnglee button as shown. The appearance of the button has changed to show the mode being used.

Selecting a rotation that does not align with the bolt hole spacing will result in the associated flanges being highlighted and a question form appearing. Clicking the Y Yeses button will also rotate the flanges while clicking the NoNo button will maintain the srcinal flange rotations resulting in the flange bolt holes being misaligned with those of the valve.

These functions allow the direction of the current component towards the head/tail position of the branch. Usually Direction To Tail Direction To Tail is used in Forwards Forwards mode to direct the leave connection and Direction To Head Direction To Head

is used in Backwards Backwards mode to direct the arrive connection.

Scenario:- The elbow has been create d and positioned di rectly below th e tail of the branch. In Forwards Forwards mode the Direction To Tail Direction To Tail button can be used to direct the leave of the elbow to the tail position.

Scenario:- The elb ow has been crea ted and posi tioned at the same height as the head of the branch. In Backwards Backwards mode the Direction To Direction To Head

Head button can be used to alig n the arri ve of the elbow to the hea d position.
