Course Description

In this course participants will not only learn the basics of using the NozzlePRO software, such as modeling, correctly defining loads and model verification, but they will also become familiar with reviewing the results and the relevance to the ASME VIII Division 2 stress categorization and compliance checks. The course allows you to learn in your own pace and does not require travels as all content is organized online. 2 live sessions with the trainer are included in which exercises will be discussed, questions will be answered and difficult topics will be demonstrated. Participants are required to follow the schedule and perform exercises in preparation of the live sessions. The course is suitable to all levels of NozzlePRO users.
