CAESAR II® Statics Analysis (TC2S1005)

Herlev, Denmark - Hexagon PPM, c/o Intergraph Denmark
11 December, 09:00 AM - 15 December, 04:00 PM

This CAESAR II course is for engineers/analysts who carry out static stress analysis on piping systems. It includes a basic introduction to the software (interface, simple data input, editing, etc.) and covers other skills by using the software to resolve typical, everyday piping problems. Design code stresses, output interpretation, and creating reports are also addressed.

Major topics

Days 1 to 3 (Monday – Wednesday)

  • Introduction (interface, units creation, how CAESAR II works, etc.)
  • Piping code basics, theory, and development (failure theories, code equations)
  • Data input methods
  • Load based piping design, supporting for deadweight
  • Expansion stresses and resolving system stress/flexibility issues
  • Equipment load compliance (incorporating system redesign, structural steel, variable spring supports, expansion joints, nozzle flexibilities, local stresses, API 610 pumps, load case set-up)
  • Deliverables including custom reports, output filters, isometric creation
  • Combining models

Days 4 and 5 (Thursday – Friday)

  • Modellng and analysis of a transmission line (incorporating buried pipe, fatigue, B31.8 code, load case manipulation)
  • Modeling and analysis of jacketed riser (incorporating jacketed pipe and ‘spider’ supports, wave loading, wind loading, modelling using block lists)
  • Modeling and analysis of FRP piping system (incorporating FRP material set-up, creating new materials, theory of FRP analysis, static-seismic loads)
  • Analysis documentation and workshop* (incorporating model generation, system evaluation and re-design in a ‘do-it-yourself’ session)
  • Depending on class attendance mode, may be switched to Wednesday


Five Days


Attendees should have an understanding of mechanical engineering theory and principles. Qualifications would typically be a degree or HNC/HND in mechanical engineering, chemical engineering or relevant experience.
