HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2013) - Intergraph has published a new case study on how CAESAR II and PV Elite are helping Ford, Bacon & Davis LLC perform fast and accurate stress analyses of piping, vessels, and related equipment to ensure that its clients' facilities are designed to code, avoiding potentially costly errors, delays, and risks during construction and operation. The case discusses how the ease-of-use and built-in intelligence of CAESAR II and PV Elite are helping the Ford, Bacon & Davis entry-level and even more experienced stress engineers develop the knowledge and experience they need for their jobs, enhancing productivity for the firm and its clients and other stakeholders. It also describes how the software's user-friendly output format, color-coded stress visuals, and animated models provide a visual representation of all of the stresses, making it easier for a non-technical client to quickly see the importance of designing to code. This speeds up the reviews and client approvals significantly.
