What you will learn

Basics of pipe stress analysis

Types of loads, stresses and loads combinations on piping systems as per ASME code

ASME Code requirements for pipe stress analysis

Types of piping supports [Rigid supports, Variable supports, Hangers...etc]

How to use CAESAR II software to create any piping 3D Model

How to add and define different piping fittings such as bends, Tees, Flanges, Valves, Expansion bellows...etc

How to model pumps & vessels nozzles in CAESAR II software

How to interpret the stress analysis output and to optimize supports design

How to compare system stresses and deformations with the code allowable limits


This course is perfect for any engineer interested to start a career in piping stress analysis but overwhelmed by many unorganized information and doesn't know from where to start.

This course is designed to guide you through piping stress analysis process - using CAESAR II - starting from scratch till being able to understand piping isometric drawings, creating a full 3D analysis model, choosing supports types & locations, checking code requirements and finalizing the design drawings/report.

This course consists of 4 sections which are as following :-

  • Section One :-

In this section, you will learn the very basics of the piping stress analysis including when & why do we have to carry out piping stress analysis, and the main concepts such as

- Loads & stresses on the system

- Loads combinations

- ASME Code compliance

- Supports optimization.

- Pipe stress analysis workflow

Once you are familiar with the piping stress analysis workflow, you will be ready for the following section

  • Section Two :-

In this section you will learn how to create a new model from scratch on CAESAR II and how to model many components such as pipe bends, tees, valves, expansion bellows, pumps and basically any kind of fitting might be in your system.

Also, during modeling you will learn multiple advanced techniques such as

- How to model pumps nozzle

- How to model surge vessels

- How to model steel structures

And many other modelling modifications techniques such as stretching, mirroring, adding segments...etc.

Once the 3D modeling is finalized, you will be ready for the following section

  • Section Three :-

In the third section, you will start investigating the output results of the analysis of CAESAR II including the system deformations, stresses, pump nozzle loads, supports optimization, and we will learn how to understand and asses the system's behavior and how to fix any failing segments of the system.

you will also learn some valuable techniques for pipe rerouting such as expansion loops.

  • Section Four :-

In this section, you are going to learn about underground pipe stress analysis including the following

- What is the difference between piping and pipeline ?

- Why do we have to do pipe stress analysis for underground pipeline ?

- When do we have to do it ?

- How different is pipe stress analysis for underground pipeline vs above ground]

- Supporting systems for underground pipelines

And many other important information about underground pipeline systems

  • Extra Resources :-

By the end of the course, and as extra resource, you will receive multiple CAESAR II models files which we have used during our course, this will give you a chance to train and enhance your modeling skills.

Conclusion & Additional tips

This course had exactly what I needed to start learning Caesar II. I like that the instructor started first by explaining all of the concepts of piping stress analysis before proceeding with Caesar II modeling. I would highly recommend it

Very comprehensive and specially API pump check and WRC nozzle checks well covered. For any further training please do start modelling with an isometric/pump data sheet/hanger data sheet etc for better understanding of freshers. Also the code references like-B31.3 Chapter 5(Flexibility and Support)/MSS SP-58,69,89(for selection and spacing of hangers). As I deal with HP piping only,i am always engaged with CLH/VLH and hence the hanger settings (cold load,hot load,max movement,spring rate etc) inputs specification should be elaborated. Keep up the good work.

Very comprehensive about the basics. It really allows you to start using Caesar from scratch. Looking foward to those additional tips and more advanced tutorials in Section 5!
