CAESAR II Statics (5 Days)

CAESAR II Statics teaches basic CAESAR II operation, model creation and output review with a focus on evaluating piping systems under static loading conditions (e.g., thermal strain, deadweight and other applied loads). Additionally, this course incorporates Piping Code background along with proper engineering application of the software. Attendees develop real world knowledge of static analysis while also learning how to use CAESAR II for cost effective piping design. Topics Covered: Piping code background and requirements - Proper modeling techniques - Guidelines for piping system design - Interpreting program results. Additional half-day Case Studies: 1) Modeling buried pipe using a pipeline code; fatigue evaluation 2) Modeling and evaluating FRP pipe; static evaluation of seismic loads 3) Wind and wave loads on an offshore riser.
