What you will learn

Introduction to Caesar II-Piping software

Exercises of the piping code ASME B31.3 (Piping Stress Analysis)

Types of pipe supports (anchors, guides, simple support, hangers and spring supports)

Creation of load cases (Hydrostatic, sustain, thermal expansion)

The best Use of the Caesar II Standard Reports

Development and interpretation of a pipe stress analysis

Allowable stress, code stress


Are you a piping designer or a piping stress engineer? Are you a fresh-graduate engineer and want to be part of the oild and gas or chemical industry?. Well this ocurse is for you, where you are going to learn how to model and analyse simple and complex piping systems easily and correctly. Piping stress analysis through examples would be carried out according to international standards such as ASME B.1.3.

Many piping professionals at the beginning of their career get to model piping systems without considering good practices and the theory behind a proper design of a piping system and its piping supports. As a result, non-allowable deflections and overstress take place in the 3D piping model and therefore, a change of the support allocation or the piping route would be neccesary afterwards. This increases the costs and the timeline of the project, which affects its financial feasibility and the client satisfaction.

Get an insight into the world of piping stress analysis with the use of the software Caesar II. Practical examples of the international piping code ASME B31.3 will be exposed and analysed. The results of the analysis with Caesar II and of the piping code B31.3 will be compared to each other such as, forces, displacements, bending and torisonal stress and stress ratio.

Very good course to understand code requirements and analysis using Caesar 2 accordingly. Highly recommended.

He rushes through everything, poor explanations and he has some very bad habits that he is teaching to new people.

Esperaba mas profundidad del curso. No me llegó la metodologia. No hay diferencia con algun curso que se pueda hacer gratis desde youtube.

I learnt how to relate back to the design code and understand how differing line conditions affect the stress/pipe displacements

A good comparison between the results of Caesar II and the examples of code B31.3 Appendix S. They are similar which implies that the modeling and stress analysis of those examples are correct. I’m excited to receive the next advanced course.

I got an excellent insight into piping stress analysis and the related load cases necessary to come up with accurate results. The results of the code B31.3 are the same as those from the software Caesar II. I am very excited to learn even more about this field of engineering.
