PCAD generates reports to allow you to crosscheck your design and manage your quality control.

Project header

Each report begins with the project header, which contains general information about the project and about the piping design criteria.

The information in the header comes from the information entered in the Project data dialog box, displayed from the Edit menu, and from the GAS supply data, entered in the Supply pressure and pressure drop dialog box.

Complete report

The complete reports includes all the available information for the project:

  • Equipments report
  • Sections report
  • Bill of material

See below for a detailed description of each report.

Equipments report

The equipments report lists the following information, for each equipment:

  • Tag
  • Flow
  • Minimum allowable inlet pressure
  • Inlet pressure
  • Maximum allowable inlet pressure

The inlet pressure is the pressure computed by PCAD. This is the pressure displayed on the drawing. All the other informations have been entered by the user.

Sections report

The sections report has 2 parts:

  • Computed data
  • Developped lenght, fittings

The computed data part of the reports lists, for each section, all the informations calculated by PCAD:

  • Section no
  • Gas flow
  • Where the gas comes from as it enters the section, and where it goes at outlet
  • Diameter
  • Pressure at the section inlet
  • Pressure drop in the section
  • Pressure at the section outlet
  • Developped lenght
  • Equivalent length

The developped lenght and fittings part of the report lists, for each section:

  • Gas flow
  • Diameter
  • Type of joints - thread or weld
  • Developped lenght
  • Number of fitting and valves
  • Equivalent length

Bill of material

The bill of material displays a detailed take-off of the piping, fittings and valves, sorted by diameter.
