    This course teaches you all the fundamentals of working with FEPipe and is beneficial for both new and existing users.

    Many different aspects of FEPipe are covered, including the analysis of typical geometries such as heads and nozzles, but also custom attachments, build using plates, and assemblies of multiple models are discussed. The entire workflow is covered in detail including visual model verification, boundary conditions and result viewing options. Also advanced modelling features in FEPipe, flange analysis, thermal transient analysis, calculating mechanical eigenmodes and much more. Also, software modules like AxiPRO and Stressplot, which are part of the PRG Suite and relate to the use of FEPipe, are discussed.

    There will also be extensive seminars on Part 5 of the ASME BPVC VIII-2 so that participants become proficient in conducting a “Design by Analysis” assessment.

    The course consists of 7 online, self-study modules combined with 4 online live sessions with the instructor. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

    After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course and the discussions forum. This allows you to perform modules again when you need to refresh the knowledge for your projects.
