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.
The Objective of this course is to provide the basic knowledge and tools required to design a functional pipe system for process and power plants. A practical and systematic approach is used to guide the participants through out the piping design process from conceptual phase to the completed product, ready for fabrication and installation. Pipe failure case studies will be included as part of the discussion to provide an insight into systems that did not perform as expected. The key to success of the course is the practical aspect of the material. Participants can readily apply the knowledge learned in the course as soon as they are back in their office.
Design and project engineers and technologists, plant and facility engineers, consultants, mechanical engineers and technologists, maintenance and operation personnel and other technical personnel who need to upgrade/refresh their current knowledge of Piping systems for process plants.
After Attending This Course You Will Be Able To
Understand codes and standards governing the design of pressure retaining components, pipe sizing, stress due to internal pressure, thermal stress and other loadings.
Learn systematic approach to design a piping system.
Gain insight into good piping layout practices, why piping system fails and case studies.
