Automatic Pipe Routing
Methods for Creating Pipe Racks

You can create a pipe rack using either of the following methods:
• Convert an existing steelwork structure into a pipe rack, using elements of the

steelwork as reference points for the position and dimensions of the planes.
• Create the routing planes which model the behaviour of a pipe rack and then add the

steelwork later, once you are satisfied with the route. In Pipe Router, this is referred to
as a conceptual pipe rack. See Creating a Conceptual Pipe Rack.

Converting a Steelwork Structure to a Pipe Rack

In this section, you will learn how to create a pipe rack, using elements of a steelwork
structure as reference points to position the planes. You will create the pipe rack, using the
steelwork FRMW ROUTERSITE/PR1.

Creating Some Pipes for the Exercise

Exercise begins:

Before you create a pipe rack, you need to create some pipes to route via the pipe rack.

1. Create the pipes shown in the illustration below. If you can not remember how to do
this, see Basic Routing. Connect the heads of the pipes at the pump nozzles and the
tails to the vessel nozzles.

You may like to route the pipes before you create and add the pipe rack. This will allow
you to see the effect of the routing plane on the route taken by the pipes. To do this:

2. Add the pipes to the Pipe Router window, as described in Defining the Head and Tail
of a Pipe.

3. Select the pipes, then select the Route: Selected option. The route taken by the pipes
should look similar to this:

Automatic Pipe Routing
Creating the Pipe Rack

To create the pipe rack:

4. Navigate to the STRU element ROUTERSITE/PRACK1. Note that you can only create
routing plane groups inside a STRU element, and so the current element must be a
STRU, FRMW or SBFR.

5. From the Pipe Router window, select Create>Pipe Rack Planes. The Create Pipe
Rack window is displayed.
