ANSYS structural mechanics  solutions are used to perform linear and non-linear analysis of pipeline  failure, buckling, soil-pipe interaction, and bolted, treated and welded connections. In addition ANSYS provides integrated solutions for fluid mechanics to study pipeline leaks, erosion, and transient multiphase analysis of gas–sand and liquid across a range of flow regimes.
