Piping Flexibility & Stress Analysis


Pipe Stress Analysis is an intensive five-day course designed to give a thorough understanding of basic and advanced concepts of process piping stress & flexibility analysis as per ASME B 31.3. Stress analysis is a critical component of piping design through which important parameters such as piping safety, safety of related components and connected equipment and piping deflection can be addressed. It needs good understanding & background in piping layouts, ASME Code requirements & piping design.

Piping Stress Analysis involves examining the flexibility and stiffness of a particular piping system under different loading conditions. Piping stress analysis determines the maximum stresses, displacements, forces & moments at restraints and suggests necessary modifications for satisfying the ASME Code Requirements for limits of sustained, displacement & occasional load allowable stresses.

Stress analysis helps revising the piping layout and its supports to avoid high local stresses. The course will discuss different types of stresses affecting piping flexibility, code criterions, and methods of analysis, including simple & comprehensive methods and computerized methods.

The extensive use of case studies and practical exercises during the course of the discussion ensures as comprehensive coverage of the topic as possible.

All the pipe stress analysis concepts will be examined & demonstrated through pipe modeling using pipe stress analysis software to give a detailed insight into the analysis methods & solutions.

The Online Training Course is developed by the faculty of IPEBS, who are International Course Speakers and have more than 22 years work & training experience individually.
