Automatic piping arrangement design considering piping supports and curved surfaces of building blocks

Abstract

In this paper, a new piping path planning system is proposed in order to automate piping design corresponding to pipe supports and curved hulls. In the proposed system, candidates for positions and directions to which pipes should be passed are given in advance as 'candidate points' from the circumstances of pipe racks and support. Then, the system selects the appropriate candidate points automatically to generate piping paths keeping constraint of many factors, e.g., gravitational flow, or geometrical limitation of the pipe-bending machine, etc. Therefore, it is quite practical. The proposed system is implemented to a computer program, and the performance of the system is demonstrated through several simulations.
