About the course
4 Live sessions
Starts Nov. 5
1-2 hr /week
Acoustic Induced Vibrations (AIV) and Flow Induced Vibrations (FIV) can cause piping systems to vibrate potentially resulting in fatigue failure. These excitation mechanisms are non-linear and strongly influenced by system settings such as valve openings and fluid velocity. Therefore, it can be difficult to predict the presence in new systems or the best remedial action in existing systems.
In this course you will come to understand the physical concepts of both excitation mechanisms in detail and gain knowledge on strategies to overcome associated vibration issues in the field and reduce the risk when designing new systems. Next to relevant theory, high risk systems and codes & standards, a multitude of real-life cases is discussed including methods for trouble shooting AIV and FIV issues.
The course consists of 4 interactive, online live sessions provided by the instructor. Recordings and related training content are provided through our online portal.

This course consists of 4 instructor-led live sessions which consists of presentations, demonstrations and discussions of questions. During each session, participants can ask questions to the instructor (through chat or microphone) which will be answered. After each live session the recording of that session, used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants to view again. If desired by the instructor, exercise files are provided at the end of a session that will be discussed in the next session. These should be performed by the participant before they are discussed in the upcoming live session.
Access to the course
After your purchase is confirmed you receive an account to the EngineeringTrainer online learning portal, where you find the course welcome chapter and instructions on how to join the live sessions. Sessions are held using the software GoToMeeting and a log-in link is provided for each session through the portal. A test link is provided from the start such as to test if you are able to properly join the sessions prior to the first session. Live sessions can be joined using any device, including tabled and mobile.
