Buried Pipe Modelling in CAESAR II

Join the Program


E-Suite Module

Mick Bouman, M.Sc.

Format: E-Suite

What you'll learn

Analysing a buried piping network? This module will teach you how to setup your piping model for analysis in CAESAR II. 

In this on-demand module, participants will be taken through:

  • introduction to beam type FEA, and the importance of element size,

  • the basic modeler in CAESAR II and how soil models are applied to elements,

  • how a soil model is defined,

  • best practice for the size of underground elements,

  • including axial restraints,

  • soil settlements,

  • best practices,

  • oil implementation in piping stress models,

  • exercise: analysis of a buried piping system.
