#905 - Modeling and Stress Analysis of Process Plant Piping Systems

Course Objective

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to apply the piping system stress analysis requirements of ASME B31.3 to process plant piping systems and understand how to use piping analysis software to meet these requirements. The piping system analysis discussions are not computer program specific; however, specific illustrations used are based on the Caesar II program.

Who Should Attend

Engineers who are responsible for performing piping system stress analysis and others who must have a good understanding of its requirements.

Course Description

This course is composed of two parts. The first part discusses the fundamentals of pipe stress analysis with an emphasis on process plant piping systems. The second part continues from the first by discussing the practical application of piping stress analysis computer programs to build piping system models and interpret the output. It also discusses the interface with detailed piping system design and the fundamentals of dynamic analysis. Sample problems and participant exercises are included where appropriate. The following topics are covered:

Part 1

Part 2

Static Analysis

Dynamic Analysis
