    This course teaches you all the fundamentals required for performing vibration measurements for pipe stress assessment.

    It includes discussions of the mechanics involved in piping vibrations, their potential causes, but also guidelines for estimated the severity and detailed analysis techniques. By means of real-life cases, typical mitigation techniques are presented.

    The course provides a toolbox to understand and investigate piping vibrations. You will be able to quickly assess whether a piping vibration might be an issue for the integrity of the system and can plan a more detailed analysis based on this assessment. 

    The course starts with an overview of important concepts such as potential sources of vibrations and existing rules of thumb for assessment. It also includes a detailed discussion of the information required for a detailed dynamic stress assessment in pipe stress software and the associated considerations.

    The course consists of 4 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.

    Access to the course. 
    After your purchase is confirmed it will be activated to your account on the EngineeringTrainer learning portal. Here you will find the course in your dashboard and you will be guided step-by-step through the different course modules. You receive 1-year unlimited access to the course. This allows you to perform modules again when you need to refresh knowledge for your work projects.

    Learn by doing.
    The course is mainly based on video content: video lectures and video software demonstrations. English subtitles are available and videos can be viewed as many times as desired. The video lectures help you to grasp the important technical concepts and in the video demonstrations the instructor uses the software and discusses all the steps and actions. You are recommended to follow the steps of the instructor in the software to optimize your learning curve.

    Exercises are available in the form of multiple-choice quizzes to help you grasp technical concepts and in the form of .pdf-files with instructions to build and analyze different models and answer related questions. Video demonstrations of the exercises are available.

    This course is self-paced and is not subject to specific dates. The course contains 4 modules with a total of 2.5 hours of content which can be performed at your own pace. A Personal Certificate will be provided to participants if they finish the course within the first month after purchase. This incentive will motivate you to perform the course quickly thereby improving your learning curve.

    You receive 1-year unlimited access to all modules. This allows you to perform modules again when you need to refresh knowledge for your work projects
