About the course
4 Live sessions
Starts May 6
2 hr /week
This course teaches you all the fundamentals of working with FEPipe.
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.
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 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.
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.
You receive 6-months unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your work projects.

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.
Exercise files can be downloaded, these can include .pdf files with the exercise questions, software models or other file types. Videos will not be available for download, but can be accessed directly with your account on the portal. If slides are used in the videos or live sessions these can be viewed separately as well through the portal, but are not available for download. You receive 6-months unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your work projects.
Yes, interactive Q&A sessions are included in this course that allow you to interact with the instructor and ask questions.
An active FEPipe license is recommended for this course. This is not included in the course. Please contact us for questions on this matter.
Because of the current work-from-home conditions around the world as a result of the COVID-19 virus an active license is not mandatory!
