CAD (Computer Aided Design)

R B Plant has established a 45-year reputation for high quality drawings and graphical designs. Integrated 3-D design is now one of the key services at RBPC.  We maintain a team of multidisciplinary CAD Designers dedicated to recording and presenting our process, civil, structural, mechanical and electrical designs in graphical form for construction and records.  We expect demand to increase as clients continue to develop their building manuals and maintenance records in a form accessed through a 3-dimensional graphical interface.  We are currently supporting a client with their World Class Manufacturing update.


CAD applications for civil, structural, mechanical and electrical designs

We typically use Autodesk software and in addition to our 2-D Autocad software we operate ‘3-D Plant Design Suite Ultimate.’ This suite of packages allows integration of the process design, such as flow sheets and P&ID’s right through to the final detailed Civil, Structural, Mechanical and Electrical designs, materials take-offs and Project Information Management (PIM).

We are used to exchanging information efficiently using the internet and cloud based programs such as Dropbox, Sharepoint, Sharefile, etc.  We regularly produce 3-D walkthroughs for client review and presentation purposes.

Stress Analysis

When necessary we use RORH2 to perform stress analysis on pipework systems.  It allows analysis of the components, construction and structure of coplex piping systems.  Pipe stress analysis can be performed to a variety of specifications including ASME, EN, ISO14692, KTA, CODETI and RCCM.  Static and dynamic analysis can be performed for the existing and allowable stresses, which is then compared to the relevant standard.  Results are presented in a table and graphical forms along with a detailed report with recommendations.
