Pipe Stress Analysis


Piping Engineering and its equipments lead for 25% of total investment in all chemical, process, LPG/ CNG Plant, oil and pharmaceutical plants.

After the plant layout design the Pipe stress analysis engineers play a vital role in finalizing what the piping engineers have designed. The piping engineers get the approval of the pipe stress analysis team and then only proceed with the detailing.

Selection criteria for lines subject to comprehensive stress analysis, Design temperature, Environmental temperature, Design pressure, Vibration, Loads, Bending moment on valves, flanges and mechanical joints, Flexible joints, Cold springing, Spring supports, Loads from piping systems on equipment are all explained in detail in this Pipe stress analysis course module.

Objective/ Key Learning

The design engineering and construction of process plants involves a multidisciplinary team effort. Plant layout and design of piping systems constitutes a major part of the design and engineering effort. The goal is to design safe and dependable processing facilities in a cost effective manner. The fact is that there are very few formal training programs that focus on design and engineering of process plants and piping systems. Therefore, most of the required skills are acquired while on the job, reducing productivity and efficiency.

The objective of this course is to provide the delegates the basic knowledge and skills in this discipline to facilitate faster learning curves while on the job. This course will cover the fundamental principles and concepts used in process plant layout and piping design. Upon completion of this course the delegates will have a clear understanding of the design and engineering principles used in plant layout and piping design.
