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. Delegates should have an appreciation for Mechanical Engineering theory and principles. Qualifications would typically be a Degree or HNC/HND in Mechanical engineering, Chemical Engineering or relevant experience.

  • 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;
  • 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);
