The PCC application comes with many material specification and standards. The calculations require the allowable stresses (ASME) by temperature or the software calculates the allowable stress based on yield, tensile and creep rupture values (EN). The use of the correct allowable stress is vital in the calculations. The calculation application allows the user to validate the source of the allowable stress and where necessary provide additional materials.

The ASME II part D is completely available in the PCC software. Most frequently used materials in the ASME B31.X series is available in the software. The user can browse the material and verify, review all the material property values.

Any discussion about the background or source of the material properties is very quickly done with the material properties being completely open to the user. The standard materials are controlled by Red-Bag, user material can be added in a separate section of the database.
