Planning and Engineering Office, Expert Evaluator
An own structural engineering calculation with IngSoft EasyPipe allows you a neutral and realistic assessment of project-specific conditions. IngSoft EasyPipe lets you see both beneficial and adverse parameters. In addition, you can find out other materials that can be used in a more cost-effective way.
Pipe manufacturer and supplier
As early as in the quotation phase, IngSoft EasyPipe supports the realistic estimation of dimensions and material properties. Required reinforcements, desired nominal stiffness (SN) classes or wall thicknesses can be determined quickly, conveniently and precisely. Economic feasibility analysis can be carried out early. In this way, you profit from a minimum cost and material expenditure.
Ordering customer, municipality or test engineer for stability

IngSoft EasyPipe in images: Screenshots
We have divided the input screen into four divisions: Navigation, Main window, Results and Help. You will find your way "easily" around the clear overview from the first program start.
Our statics software guides you as the user through the navigation tree. In the Main window, you will make the entries, whose validity will be immediately checked by IngSoft EasyPipe.
The integrated Help section with sketches responds in a context-sensitive manner to the position of the cursor. This always gives you helpful hints.
In the lower part of the application window, IngSoft EasyPipe displays a Preview of the most important results. Color-coded fields immediately indicate the fulfilled verifications to you.
The printout of the pipe statics offers the three levels short, medium and long: Thus, you meet the demands of all auditors and clients.
IngSoft EasyPipe made "easy"!
We want to make the entry into IngSoft EasyPipe as easy as possible for you. Installation and use are "easy". We will gladly provide you with the necessary specialist knowledge of standards in a seminar.
ATV-DVWK-A 127:2000 (Germany)
The module A 127 follows the word sheet ATV-DVWK-A 127, 3rd edition (version 2000). It allows the structural engineering calculation of underground pipelines in trenches or dams, and allows the dimensioning of pipes from all the materials mentioned in the work sheet.
For detailed module description, see product information (PDF) on page 6
AWWA M45:2005 (USA)
With the M 45 Fiberglass Pipe Design (edition 2005), the ‘American Water Works Association’ (AWWA) published a handbook for underground laying of glass fiber reinforced plastic pipes (GFRP pipes), which have found recognition in many parts of the world. The structural engineering calculation of GFRP pipes described in M 45 is mapped in the software by the M 45 module.
For detailed module description, see product information (PDF) on page 9
SIA 190:2000 (Switzerland)
The module SIA 190 follows the Swiss standard SIA 190, sewers, edition 2000. It allows the structural calculation of underground pipelines in trenches or dams, and allows the dimensioning of pipes from all the materials mentioned in the work sheet in a bend-soft and rigid version.
For detailed module description, see product information (PDF) on page 10
SIA 190:2017 (Switzerland)
The originally incomplete reprint of the set of standards from 2017 contains many innovations, which IngSoft EasyPipe provides in a separate compute module.
In spring 2018, the SIA compiled the supplementary documentation D 0263 with the content Pipe statics - technical documentation on the SIA 190:2017 standard. The SIA offers the D 0263 as a fee-based version for download.
The SIA 190:2017 calculation module is available. We get the sample calculations' results in IngSoft EasyPipe.
CCTGs Fasicule 70:2000 (France)
The work sheet of our neighbors is the counterpart to the ATV-DVWK-A 127. Details are available on request.
In cooperation with S & P Consult GmbH, Bochum, IngSoft has developed a module for the work sheet DWA-A 143-2 (edition 2015) that maps the evidence for the old pipe conditions I-III by means of the finite element method (FEM) according to theory II. order. For historical reasons, a module is also available for leaflet ATV-M 127-2.
With the module A 143-2 basis, you can calculate all necessary load case combinations within a calculation cycle including interaction up to host pipe condition (HPC) III for circular profiles. Egg-shaped and circular liners can also be studied in HPC I-II.
For detailed module description, see product information (PDF) on page 8
Unique on the market is our extension "Egg-shaped section in the HPC III", see below.
ATV-M 127-2:2000 (invalid)
The scope of the module M 127-2 basis is comparable to that of module A 143-2 basis, whereby the leaflet ATV-M 127-2 specifies a global safety concept. The leaflet ATV-M 127-2 has been replaced by the worksheet DWA-A 143-2 of July 2015.
Manhole (without any standard)
The Manhole module is a logical continuation of our tried-and-tested software IngSoft EasySchacht98. At the DWA we are currently working on the standard DWA-M 127-4 for the structural calculation of manholes in the work group ES-5.9.
The manhole module is based on findings from the pipe statics with engineering extensions and allows you to study circular shafts in terms of statics. The focus is on the shaft pipe itself, the checks are carried out for two design sections of the shell at the manhole base and head.
For detailed module description, see product information (PDF) on page 11
The manhole module is under development. The standalone software IngSoft EasySchacht98 can be delivered immediately with the option for an update to manhole module, when available.
DWA-A 161:2014 + corrections 2017
The module A 161 is used for the structural engineering calculation of driving pipes and is based on the 2nd edition of work sheet DWA-A 161, March 2014 edition. This worksheet is the first DWA set of standards governing the structural calculation of pipes with partial safety factors according to Eurocode (semi-probabilistic concept).
For detailed module description, see product information (PDF) on page 9
IngSoft offers the extension special vehicles in order to be able to map special vehicles outside of standard regulations. With its help, ground stresses under forklifts, reach stackers or aircrafts such as the Airbus A380 can be determined. Some vehicles are shipped with the extension and can be selected from the dropdown menu.
For detailed module description, see product information (PDF) on page 12
Profile from the drawing
This extension enables the determination of cross-section values from image files for the calculation of profiled pipes. It determines structural values such as area, moment of resistance, moment of inertia per unit area and inertia distance. Using the profile width as an indicator for repeating a section, the entire profile is scaled.
For detailed module description, see product information (PDF) on page 13
The extension is only available for the following modules: A 127, A 161, SIA 190.
A 127: Pipe with base
With the extension, reinforced concrete and concrete pipes that have one base can be detected. The calculation is carried out by means of stress detection in accordance with ATV-DVWK-A 127 fig. 9 for egg-shaped and circular base pipes (DIN V 1201:2004-08).
The moments / normal force coefficients from the publication of Hornung / Kittel ‘Statics of underground pipes’, Bauverlag GmbH, 1989, p. 283 ff are used.
The extension is only available for the following module: A 127.
A 143-2 / M 127-2: Egg-shaped section in HPC III
With the extension, standard egg-shaped sections in the host pipe condition (HPC) III can be calculated for the first time on a geometrically correct model with egg-shaped contour. So far, the approximation method mentioned in the standards has been resorted to with a spare circle, which is not always on the safe side.
We have published the background of this extension in a technical contribution.
