Zinfra Selects Intergraph® CAESAR II® for Detailed Mine Subsidence Analysis

Leading pipe stress analysis package helps Australian engineering company to manage future threats to pipeline

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 13, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Utility infrastructure service provider Zinfra has selected Intergraph® CAESAR II® pipe stress analysis software to deliver two projects involving the detailed analysis of the impact of future mine subsidence.

Zinfra was appointed recently to work on two projects situated on parcels of land that have been earmarked for future mining activity, which will occur underneath each project's respective pipeline. However, analysis also identified that both areas of land were vulnerable to mine subsidence – which is the sinking of the earth's surface as a result of the collapse or failure of underground mine workings. Zinfra identified from the outset that its pipeline analysis would need to be both extremely accurate and highly detailed in order to avoid costly repair works, and undertook a search to find a best-in-class software solution to provide the required results.

After an evaluation process that took into consideration the experience of Zinfra employees and contractors, as well as the preferences of several key clients, CAESAR II was selected for the job. CAESAR II evaluates the structural responses and stresses of piping systems to international codes and standards and is the pipe stress analysis standard against which all others are measured.

"CAESAR II's level of detail, functionality and sophistication are integral to the successful completion of the design for both projects," said Andrew O'Neill, Zinfra's group solutions development manager. "The automated code compliance features were particularly useful, and saved us an immense amount of time in the analysis phase."

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, "We are proud that Zinfra recognizes that CAESAR II is the industry standard solution for pipe stress analysis. We anticipate that this capability will become a selling point with Zinfra's clients."
