Piping Design is a critical component of engineering projects and process plants. The science of piping engineering involves developing efficient piping processes that safely transport fluids and gases across industrial plants. Optimally designed piping system can enhance the use of space, ease its construction, simplify maintenance and accessibility and improve the overall performance of piping systems.
2D / 3D Design:
Hydraulic design (flow, velocities, pressure drop)
Piping specification (materials, pipe schedule, rating of elements)
Insulation. Thermal losses
2D/ 3D Piping Routing and modeling
Mechanical piping design (thickness calculation) according to ASME B31.1 / B31.3 / EN13480, etc.
Isometric drawings for construction
Bill of materials / quantities.
Piping Flexibility analysis according to ASME B31.1/B31.3 / EN 13480/CSA Z662
Supports design (type and position)
Advanced Piping Flexibility Analysis (Finite Element Analysis)
Determination of SIF (stress intensification factor)according to B31J for special geometries not covered by ASME B31.1/B31.3
Great diameter or rectangular ducts/pipes when Eigen Buckling failure mode analysis is required
Special transitions pieces (rectangular/ circular)
Special supports design
Creep range design/operation
Cyclic loads. Fatigue analysis
Check of allowable loads on nozzles (pumps, static equipment, etc.) as per WRC-107
Dynamic analysis (Modal, Harmonic)
Our professional piping stress engineers have a bachelor's degree in mechanical / structural engineering and province license (P.Eng.) in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Ontario. We review, validate, certify and stamp piping and structural packages.
