Piping Design, Analysis and Fabrication

  July 07, 2017  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
23-25 October 2017

Who Should Attend?
This course provides an overview of all significant aspects and considerations of piping for those who are involved in the design, analysis, fabrication, installation, maintenance or ownership of piping systems. Personnel who work in the chemical, petroleum, utility, plastic processing, paper, manufacturing, environmental, heat and air conditioning fields will find this course valuable, including those in

  • Engineering 
  • Maintenance
  • Quality Assurance 
  • Manufacturing

Those who must comply with Code requirements will benefit from the practical approach presented in this course in obtaining satisfactory and economical piping systems. 

Course Description
The course will review the basic requirements of the various sections of the ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping with emphasis on B31.1, Power Piping and B31.3, Process Piping. General topics in the course include: pressure design, flow and sizing considerations, flexibility analysis, dead loads, equipment loads, dynamic loads, and supports and restraints. Applications of these concepts, including simple hand analysis methods and computer-based analysis methods, will be demonstrated. Examples of the required analysis and sources of further information will be provided. The practical aspects of material selection and fabrication will be considered, including materials for high and low temperature service, cutting, bending, welding processes, heat treatment requirements and nondestructive examination. Code requirements and the practical limitations of each operation will be discussed, as well as the economics of material selection and alternate fabrication processes.

Each session will be conducted in a lecture/discussion format designed to provide intensive instruction and guidance on understanding Code requirements, and also on developing an awareness of other considerations in the design, analysis, fabrication and installation of piping which is not covered by the Codes. There will also be a demonstration of computer software that can be used to assist in piping analysis. The faculty will be available following each day’s session to provide participants with further opportunity for discussion and consideration of specific problems.
