I'm looking for a software to design PV with Australian code. Does anybody know if it exist?

Check with www.chempute.com. If anyone would know, they would.

You might try posting in the Australian and New Zealand "Code Issues" forum www.eng-tips.com/threadminder.cfm?pid=744. It does not get many postings but maybe somebody reads it.

EngVenier,
The only ever software based on AS 1210 was the "PRESTO" developed by Peter Hill et all. It vanished in the oblivion a few years ago, when the issue was - too many $ for a small bang. Also, the design registration and third party verification have accepted the basic hand calcs, having the detailed calcs done by PV Elite or similar.
Use confidently any software based on ASME VIII, (PV ELITE includes the seismic and wind load design per AS 1170), include a small manual calculation for the hydrotest pressure and that will be accepted both by WorkCover and TPI.
Cheers,

What gr2vessels states is generally correct.

However be careful using PV Elite or Compress for the design of all parts designs – for example AS1210 still uses UTS/4 as the allowable design stress for flanges – ASME VIII Div 1 uses UTS/3.5

Also not sure if PV Elite / Compress can be applied for designs in accordance with AS1210 Class 1H – which uses an advanced design method (similar to ASME VIII Div 2)
