CEASAR II® Statics Analysis (TC2S1005)

Karlskoga, Sweden - Hexagon PPM, c/o Intergraph Sweden
06 November, 09:00 AM - 10 November, 04:00 PM

What will the course cover?

This course is for engineers/analysts who carry out Static stress analysis on piping systems. The class includes a basic introduction to the software (interface, simple data input, editing etc. and then goes on to develop further skills by using CAESAR II® software to resolve typical everyday piping problems. It also covers design code stresses, output interpretation and creating reports amongst many other subjects.

What are the major topics covered?

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 Re-Design, 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)

  • Modelling and analysis of a transmission line (incorporating buried pipe, fatigue, B31.8 code, load case manipulation…..)
  • Modelling and analysis of jacketed riser (incorporating jacketed pipe and ‘spider’ supports, wave loading, wind loading, modelling using block lists…..)
  • Modelling 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


  • 5 Days

What are the prerequisites for attending this course?
