This course teaches you many fundamental aspects required to work with industrial piping systems.  It covers a broad range of topics but discusses the different equations, concepts and phenomena in detail such that you can grow your understanding of the technical backgrounds. Important equations are deduced from scratch. Everyone working with industrial piping systems is recommended to participate in this course as it covers important concepts that form a strong foundation to understand piping designs. The course covers material stresses in piping geometry, loads considered for piping design, primary vs. secondary stresses, failure mechanisms, design codes and associated considerations and elements present in a piping system.

This course is meant for professionals that want to strengthen their knowledge about industrial piping system, both those working (or going to work) directly as a pipe stress engineer as those that want a good understanding of the concepts for related job-functions.
