About the course


   4 modules

    3:45 hours


   Limited seats


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 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.

Course videos.
The course is mainly based on video content: video lectures and video software demonstrations. 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.

This course is self-paced and is not subject to specific dates. The course contains 4 modules with a total of 3:45 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.

Participants of this course receive a personal digital certificate if they meet the following requirements:

  • complete each module of the course,

  • filling in the Course Evaluation Survey.
