Our team of Pipe stress analysis consultants forms the functional core of what we do here at our Calgary, AB, Canada office in Little P.Eng. Engineering. Pipes are used extensively in Industrial facilities, such as Chemical processing refineries and Power generation plants. In terms of applications in Industrial processes, pipe plays a vital role in Pipe Stress Analysis Services
Facilitating engineering processes
Transmission of gas and liquid in Gas transmission piping system and Liquid distribution pipe systems
Unlike a solid bean structure, which is predominantly designed for strong support, a pipe structure, which is tubular and slender in design is constructed predominantly for the purpose of transmitting fluid materials. Because a piping structure by its very nature is not designed for strength, it is important for a proper pipe stress analysis to be conducted to ensure the structural integrity of the piping system as a whole.
Why Choose Us
1. Cost Effective Computer-Aided Engineering Design Capabilities (CAESAR II, CADWorks)
We have the tools needed to execute detailed designs in the most cost-effective manner possible for piping system layouts and isometrics, equipment arrangements and stack-ups. 3D CAD modeling is the basic basis of our piping design process. All our piping system design projects begin with 3-D models. It is from this master 3D CAD model that the project deliverables are extracted. This includes
● Pipe isometric drawings
● Pipe arrangement drawings
● Pipe Plans & Elevations drawings
● Engineering Bill of materials (BOM)
2. Experienced Piping Design Expertise
Our piping engineering design team have extensive industrial experience in providing pipe design services from construction support to the most elaborate 3-D designs. Working with our highly professional and skilled piping stress engineers, we take every possible attention to make sure that all piping system structure design that needs pipe stress analysis are thoroughly inspected and properly supported
3. Integrated Piping System Design WorkFlow
Our company has an extensive database of piping and insulation specifications, which allows us to support the provision of specific specification details to eliminate additional unnecessary designs and reduce precious project man-hours needed.
Our Pipe Analysis Services & Capabilities
At Little P.Eng. Engineering, our team of highly trained piping design engineers and pipe stress analysis consultants who harness the power of world-class computer-aided FEA simulation (CAESAR II) analysis software tools to streamline the piping system design process. Using the highly Advanced finite element simulation FEA software (CAESAR II) program analysis tools, our team of piping system design engineers have the capabilities to efficiently carry out the pipe analysis task, such as
1. Optimization of Strength to Wall thickness Ratio
Our structural engineering consultants are able to provide the necessary structural engineering services, such as Optimization of Geometry and wall thickness of piping element structures for maximum structural strength while using the minimal material cost used.
2. Stress Analysis
We provide pipe stress engineering services (CAESAR II) through the Engineering Simulation and Identification of the stress distribution at various Pipe segments and Elbow elements in both thin-walled and thick-walled Piping system.
3. Pipe Failure Analysis
Stress-analysis to simulate the deformation of pipe cross section geometry along specific pipe segments when subjected to various force loading conditions. Our pipe stress analysis consultants are able to accurately simulate complex deflection behavior conditions, such as Pipe Bending, Collapsing, Ovalization, Warping, Non-uniform Radial expansion.
4. Simulation of Piping interactions with External Forces
Base on the implementation location of the piping system, our comprehensive pipe stress analysis capabilities can also allow you to accurately account for the following external force condition for a more accurate analysis
1.Hydrodynamic added mass (from external fluid)
2.added mass (due to internal fluid mass)
3.Wave loading effect
5.Pipe to surface contact conditions (like pipe-lay on seabed)
6.Pipe-to-pipe contact conditions (like PIP) can also be.
8.Various types of physics Loading forces, such as Axial force, Bending moment, Shear force or Hoop stress.
9.Internal and External pressure conditions
Why is Pipe Stress Analysis Important?
Pipe stress analysis necessary for the installation of any piping system. Through Pipe Stress Analysis we are able to help you solve the typical pipe engineering challenges, such as:
To Account for Thermal Expansion
To ensure dimensional deflections are well controlled within the desired specification when subjected applied with external thermal and Force loadings
To simulate and check to ensure that the force loadings and Moments exerted on the connected processing machinery or storage vessel due to thermal growth does not exceed stays within the acceptable safety limits.
to evaluate and ensure that the resultant stress values in the piping system in both the extreme cold and hot conditions are below the acceptable safety limits.
This helps to ensure compliance with regulatory and legislative safety policies and design guidelines
Ensure Structural Integrity of Pipe Structure
Ensuring structural integrity and safety of the piping structure under subjected to various external environmental conditions by ensuring the piping system structure is thoroughly supported throughout.
*This helps to prevent any unintended sagging or physical deflection due to loading forces arising from to its own weight.
Design Optimization to Minimize Cost
Minimize the material cost of constructing the piping system, by optimizing the pipe system to use the minimum pipe wall thickness, while at the same time ensuring that its operation fulfills the fluid Pressure and Temperature requirements.
Our professional piping stress engineers have a bachelor's degree in mechanical / structural engineering and province licence (P.Eng.) in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Ontario. We review, validate, certify and stamp piping and structural packages.
