Course Description: CAESAR II Dynamics is highly regarded for its blend of background theory, use of CAESAR II and engineering application. Attendees develop real world knowledge of dynamic analysis of systems while also learning how to use CAESAR II for cost effective piping design. Topics Covered: Dynamic response of mechanical systems - Building a dynamic model for analysis - Interpreting dynamic analysis results - Solving field vibration problems using harmonic analysis- Seismic analysis using the response spectrum method - Evaluating transient loads with time history analysis. With these added components: - A survey of approaches to evaluating relief valve discharge - Workshop exercise in slug flow evaluation - Workshop using time history methods to verify a dynamic load factor. Course Prerequisites: Basic mechanical engineering background.
