The participant of this seminar will have an overview of the codes and standards governing the design of pressure retaining components and the piping design process. By the end of the seminar, the participant will understand pipe sizing for various flow conditions and pipe wall thickness calculation for internal pressure. Flow and pressure drop calculation; allowable stress and basic piping stress analysis, loading on piping system. Various components that make up a piping system. Good piping design and layout practices. All topics are introduced to individuals with no or limited background on the subject.
