Caesar II Training Course.jpg

The course provides participants with training in performing piping stress analysis by using software. The introduction of the course covers the basic background of codes and standards, supporting, flexibility and the main features of all piping stress analysis software. The course then presents all phases of use, including modeling, performing static analysis, review of results, performing equipment code check, design of spring supports and expansion joints, underground pipes, steel structures and dynamic analysis. The course shall include on-screen lecturing, examples, typical problem solving and hands-on training in the use of the program.
