CAESAR II Webinar: Water Hammer Evaluation

GoToWebinar, Online - (Timezone: CDT)
23 March, 10:00 AM - 23 March, 11:00 AM

Join Jim Wilcox, president of CodeCAD Inc., as he discusses the sudden changes in flow in piping systems cause pressure fluctuations and unbalanced forces, particularly between changes in direction, such as at elbow pairs. These also occur at changes in area, such as valves, reducers, and other inline components. It is not uncommon for these forces to cause damage when a system is not properly designed to accommodate them.

Predicting these loads by hand can sometimes be impossible (or at least impractical), so engineers typically use software to predict the magnitude, direction, and variation of these loads over time. Once you establish the loading profiles, you must then predict how these loads will affect your piping system.

Attend this March 23 webinar to learn how you can generate the required force-time data using AFT Impulse transient analysis software. See a demonstration of how you can use the force-time data in CAESAR II to predict the system response using spectral and time-history analyses.
