    Abstract

    This paper discusses about combined usage of structural analysis and system level simulation. Application area is continuous processes and their pipeline systems e.g. Power plants. Main idea is to base structural analysis on simulated transients. Simulation results include e.g. time dependant behaviour of pressures and temperatures. Simulation model can be done manually or automatically based on data read from plant databases or directly from the model taken from the structural analysis tool. Similarly structural analysis model can be either hand-made or based on information read from plant databases or simulation model. This paper concentrates on 2 recent cases that are done at VTT i.e. connecting Apros dynamic process simulator to TVO’s Pams piping database and Abaqus commercial structural analyses tool.
