   VILT1402

Piping stress engineers often do not have in-depth knowledge of the theory, function and calculation methods of expansion joints. This lack of understanding can lead a misunderstanding between piping engineers (or pipe stress engineers) and expansion joint manufacturers. During the pipe stress analysis phase an expansion joint manufacturer is likely not to have been selected yet. If an engineer cannot preselect an expansion joint from a manufacturer catalogue, they must know how to make the best assumptions and preselect appropriate input data for the pipe stress analysis.

This course will provide piping engineers of all levels how (and how not) to model expansion joints within a piping flexibility analysis. Specific focus will be simulations using the software CAESAR II, and worked cases using this software package will be shown.

Participants may also be interested in Part 1 of this course (VILT1401).

The course consists of 2 online live sessions with the instructor. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account. After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again when you need to refresh the knowledge for your projects.
