    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 6 online modules based on video content. You receive 1-year unlimited access to the course and the discussions forum. This allows you to perform modules again when you need to refresh knowledge for your work projects.

    This course is also available as part of the PRG Suite Course Bundle (see below).
