SIMFLEX-III is a static and dynamic pipe stress and flexibility analysis program designed for evaluating pipe stress caused by
SIMFLEX-III checks the following at every data point in the system for compliance with ASME B31 code stress requirements:
SIMFLEX-III is accessed through a web browser and executed in a cloud computing environment. SIMFLEX-III has new web-based three-dimensional graphics capabilities, including a new web-based viewer to review the output file and maintain the component-oriented input scheme that greatly simplifies the input process that reduces the chance of error. SIMFLEX-III maintains the once-through process, allowing the code compliance analysis, spring design, rotating equipment load compliance report, anchor and support load combination table, limit-stop, and friction inclusion to be done with a single set-up of input data in a single computer run.
To ensure maximum accuracy and productivity, SIMFLEX-III has implemented the following unique features:

Step 1 – The user creates a SIMFLEX-III input file using a special editor. The input file is submitted and checked for errors.
Step 2 – A three-dimensional graphic display of the input piping system is provided to check the geometry. Standard graphic manipulation such as zoom and rotate is provided. Node numbering may be displayed along with specific piping component types, including straight pipe, elbows, valves, equipment connections, spring hangers, etc. The SIMFLEX-III input file is submitted to the SIMFLEX-III Cloud Computing Environment, and then output and graphics files are returned to the user.
Step 3 – Using a viewer created to streamline browsing of the analysis results, the user may review the SIMFLEX-III output file. In addition, graphical display of output is provided including deformed shape and stress contours indicating the highest stressed areas.

Liang-Chuan Peng was a pioneer in piping technology, coauthoring one of the most thorough and technically advanced publications on the subject titled Pipe Stress Engineering. The book’s coauthor was Liang-Chuan’s son, Tsen-Loong Peng. The book was published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers in 2009 and is available on the ASME website.
The original SIMFLEX Software program released in 1980 for Pipe Stress Analysis was authored under the leadership of Peng Engineering’s founder and recognized industry expert, the late Liang-Chuan Peng, and continues to be considered the definitive reference on pipe stress engineering.
