Maple + using FTOC + simplification, here as procedure

val := proc()
local result, t13, t14, t15, t16, t17, t18, t19;

t17 := 2^(1/2);
t15 := (2+t17)^(1/2);
t13 := cos(t15);
t16 := (2-t17)^(1/2);
t19 := t15*sin(t15)+t16*t13;
t14 := cos(t16);
t18 := t16*sin(t16)+t15*t14;
result := (1/8*t18*exp(-t15)+1/8*t19*exp(-t16)+3/32*t16+
3/32*t15+1/32*(2*t14*t18-t15)*exp(-2*t15)+
1/32*(2*t13*t19-t16)*exp(-2*t16))*Pi
end proc
