CAESAR II Quick Reference Guide (Version 4.30)
The CAESAR II Quick Reference Guide is intended to aid users in quickly identifying
needed information and to resolve common questions and problems. This Reference
Guide is distributed with each copy of the software and users are urged to copy it (the
Reference Guide) as necessary.

Comments and suggestions concerning the CAESAR II program, the Users Guide, or
the Quick Reference Guide are always welcome. Users with problems, questions, or
suggestions can contact the COADE Development/Support staff.

CAESAR II is an advanced PC based tool for the engineer who designs or analyzes
piping systems. CAESAR II uses input spreadsheets, on-line help, graphics, and
extensive error detection procedures to facilitate timely operation and solution.
CAESAR II is capable of analyzing large piping models, structural steel models, or
combined models, both statically and dynamically. ASME, B31, WRC, and rotating
equipment reports combine to provide the analyst with a complete description of the
piping systems behavior under the applied loading conditions. Additional technical
capabilities such as out-of-core solvers, force spectrum analysis (for water hammer and
relief valve solutions), time history, and large rotation rod hangers provide the pipe stress
engineer with the most advanced computer based piping program available today.

The CAESAR II program is continuously enhanced to incorporate new technical

abilities, to provide additional functionality, and to modify existing computation
procedures as the piping codes are updated. A complete list of the most recent changes
to the CAESAR II program can be found in the later section of Chapter 1 of the Users
Guide. Users desiring software sales or seminar information are urged to contact the

CAESAR II / Pipe Stress Seminars
COADE offers seminars periodically to augment the Engineers knowledge of CAESAR II
and Pipe Stress Analysis. The general seminar is held in the COADE Houston office and
covers three days of statics and two days of dynamics. This seminar emphasizes the
piping codes, static analysis, dynamic analysis, and problem solving.

Custom seminars held at client locations are also available. For additional seminar
details, please contact COADE and ask for seminar information.

The installation aborts with an error stating: An error occurred during the move
data process: 623.

This is caused by attempting to install the software when a previous copy is currently

This error occurs because InstallShield could not rename an intermediate file during
the file transfer process. This error can be caused by running the target application
during the installation, as well as some virus-checking programs. When this error
occurs, shut down all running applications and restart the installation process.

The installation aborts with an error stating: An error occurred during the move
data process: 115.

A problem has been encountered on Novell networks in that they may not work with
long file names. In builds of CAESAR II Version 4.00 up through and including
980122, the file C2PIPENET.EXE is longer than 8.3 characters, and causes the
installation to abort.

This error is caused when the installation can not write a file to the target hard disk. In
addition to the Novell problem noted above, a lack of sufficient access rights will also
cause this error. On some networks, other workstations using the software have caused
this error.

Any build after March 1, 1998 will report the file which can not be installed, prior to
the termination of the installation process.

The software will not startup properly and indicates an ESL (External Software
Lock) problem.

Check that the necessary ESL drivers have been loaded correctly. Refer to
..\caesar\assidrv for documentation on the drivers. Check the file patch.430 and
insure the correct version (full run, limited run, dealer) has been installed, and matches
your ESL type.

To check that the drivers have been loaded properly, go to ..\caesar\assidrv (for red or
white) ESLs and run HINSTALL -info.

Q-1 CAESAR II Quick Reference Guide - 2/2001

The Main Menu starts up but attempting to enter the piping input immediately fails.

If this is an NT system, check the program directory for the files OPENGL32.DLL and
GLU32.DLL. These files should not exist in the CAESAR II program directory, as
they are Windows 95 components. Delete these two files. (Windows NT provides
these DLLs as part of the operating system. The Windows 95 versions are not
compatible with Windows NT.)

Try a different input file. If the user takes a pre-3.24 input file and renames it from _a
to ._a, then the logic to upgrade the file to the new format is bypassed. This will crash
the input processor which uses the file name format to detect pre versus post 3.24

This problem can also be caused by the lack of a configuration file, CAESAR.CFG or
changing the data directory to one containing an out-of-date configuration file.

Only a portion of the window can be seen, some parts or controls are cut off.

CAESAR II was designed to operate in 800x600 resolution with small fonts.

Large fonts, or custom fonts may be too large for this (800x600) resolution. Either
decrease the font size or increase the screen resolution.

When attempting to use a module which uses tab controls, such as: MISC,
C2SETUP, ROT, or PREPIP, some users may get an abort in a debug message

This is probably caused by an out of date COMCTL32.DLL. Ask the user to check the
date of COMCTL32.DLL, usually located in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM, but wherever
the Windows directory is. The date on the one that works is 8/26/96 or newer, and is
about 378K in size. The one that doesnt work has a date in 1995 and is about 178K.

The only people with this problem are running Win95 OSR1 (OEM Service Release
1). They should get the latest service packs from the Microsoft WEB site.

Additional troubleshooting tips can be obtained from the CAESAR II FAQ document
located on the COADE web site at Troubleshooting issues
are also discussed in the Discussion Forums, also located on the COADE web site.

CAESAR II Quick Reference Guide - 2/2001 Q-2

Overview of CAESAR II Interfaces
There are several external interfaces in existence which transfer data between CAESAR II
and other software packages. These interfaces can be accessed via the TOOLS option of
the main menu.

CADWorx (requies AutoCAD)

INTERGRAPH (mainframe)
CADPIPE (requires AutoCAD)
ISOMET (mainframe)
PDMS (mainframe)
PCF (Alias format)

Users interested in these interfaces should contact COADE for further information. We
anticipate other interfaces in the future. We will keep users updated via the newsletter
or revised documentation.

CAESAR II Quick Reference Guide - 2/2001 Q-8

Code Stresses
Listed below are the code stress equations for the actual and allowable stresses used
by CAESAR II. For the listed codes, the actual stress is defined by the left hand side
of the equation and the allowable stress is defined by the right hand side. The
CAESAR II load case label is also listed after the equation.

Typically the load case recommendations made by CAESAR II are sufficient for code
compliance. However, CAESAR II does not recommend occasional load cases.
Occasional loads are unknown in origin and must be specified by the user.

Q-15 CAESAR II Quick Reference Guide - 2/2001

Node Locations on Bends
Bends are defined by the element entering the bend and the element leaving the bend. The
actual bend curvature is always physically at the TO end of the element entering the bend.
The element leaving a bend must appear immediately after the element defining (entering)
the bend.

The default bend radius is 1.5 times the pipe nominal OD.

For stress and displacement output the TO node of the element entering the bend is
located geometrically at the FAR point on the bend. The FAR point is at the weldline
of the bend, and adjacent to the straight element leaving the bend.

The NEAR point on the bend is at the weldline of the bend, and adjacent to the straight
element entering the bend.
The FROM point on the element is located at the NEAR point of the bend if the total
length of the element as specified in the DX, DY and DZ fields is equal to: Radius * tan(
Beta / 2 ) where Beta is the bend angle, and Radius is the bend radius of curvature to
the bend centerline.

Nodes defined in the ANGLE # and NODE # fields are placed at the given angle on the
bend curvature. The angle starts with zero degrees at the NEAR point on the bend and
goes to Beta degrees at the FAR point of the bend.
Angles are always entered in degrees.

By default, nodes on the bend curvature cannot be specified within five (5) degrees of one
another or within five degrees of the nearest endpoint. This and other bend settings may
be changed through the MAIN MENU, CONFIGURE-SETUP processor. (See pp Q5-6)
When the FROM node on the element entering the bend is not at the bend NEAR point
a node may be placed at the near point of the bend by entering an ANGLE # on the bend
spreadsheet equal to 0.0 degrees. (See the following figure.)

When defining a bend element for the first time in the pipe spreadsheet, nodes are
automatically placed at the near and mid point of the bend. The generated midpoint node
number is one less than the TO node number on the element, and the generated near point
node number is two less than the TO node number on the element. A near point should
always be included in the model in tight, highly formed piping systems.
The top-left figure below shows the points on the bend as they would be input. The top-
right figure shows the actual geometric location of the points on the bend. The bottom-
left figure shows the same geometry except that two nodes are defined on the bend
curvature at angles of zero and forty-five degrees.
