COADE, Inc. II incorporates capabilities from piping codes to expansion joint, valve and flange, and structural data bases to structural and buried pipe modeling, to equipment and vessel nozzle evaluation, to spectrum and time history analysis. Most of the features are available at a keystroke, but at the same time are not imposed upon the analyst.

A menu driven scroll and select interface provides logical options when and where expected. Context sensitive help provides instant technical assistance for each data field, with expected units. Data values presented in the help screens are automatically presented in the current set of units to aid input. User requests, code changes, and the need to benchmark older, existing systems and their initial design have driven the customization options of the system. Many of these customization options enable newer analysis techniques appearing in current literature.

The system is continuously maintained and improved by the engineering staff. This allows CAESAR II to work the way a typical engineer thinks and solves a problem. This also means that the technical support provided to users by the engineering staff is almost instantaneous. Users talk straight to the developers, insuring an accurate and timely answer.

Program revisions incorporate additional capabilities addressing both technical and operational items. Users are encouraged to suggest improvements that help their day to day usage of the software. See the enhancement list for details of capabilities added for each release of the program.
