This course teaches you the fundamentals of pulsations in piping systems and a how to assess these pulsations based on the API 618 and API 674 codes.

The course is intended for engineers involved in the acoustic and/or mechanical design of the piping upstream or downstream of a reciprocating equipment. You will be introduced to the theoretical background of pulsation analysis, and will become acquainted with conducting a code conformance analysis for reciprocating equipment using BOSpulse.

Effective mitigation methods are covered for excessive pressure pulsations and the analysis of these mitigative actions using BOSpulse. Detailed explanation of the effects of dampener configurations, bottles, and other pressure suppression methods are provided using BOSpulse.

After this course you are a confident user of BOSpulse which understands good design practices and analysis methods for water hammer phenomena in piping systems.

The course consists of 9 online, self-paced learning modules and 2 interactive, online live sessions with the instructor. Recordings of the live sessions and related training content are provided through our online portal.

Self-paced modules & live sessions
This course consists of 9 self-learning modules combined with 2 instructor-led group sessions (online) in which participants can ask questions to the instructor which are be discussed, as well as questions submitted in the self-learning modules. After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants on the learning portal.

You receive 1-year unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your daily work activities.

The live sessions are scheduled together with the customer and are private for their team only. 

After the course participants receive 1-year unlimited access to all course content including recordings of the live sessions. This allows them to watch videos or recording live sessions again whenever required to refresh knowledge for daily work activities.

A personal digital certificate will be made available to each participant upon full attendance and completion of the self-learning modules.
