Summary

Deliver safe systems and minimise risks by understanding when you need to perform pipe stress analysis.

Pipe stress analysis is a key part of the design process which ensures no failure occurs due to lack of flexibility or poorly supported systems. Failure to assess the loads correctly may lead to failure of supports, damage to static and rotating equipment, and system failure.

This webinar investigates when you need to perform Pipe Stress Analysis to deliver a safe system, what phenomena should be considered, and at what stage in the design should you do the analysis to minimize risk to the project. 

We will consider the requirements most common in piping codes (ASME B31.3 and EN13480-3) and share the practices across the industry to help engineers and managers make decisions on whether they require pipe stress analysis; including what load cases to consider and when analysis may need to be performed again or updated due to changing requirements during in-service operation of the piping systems. 
 

Who should attend?

Engineers involved with piping and their design who wish to understand:

  • When pipe stress analysis should be performed
  • What drives the requirements
  • What codes are applicable
  • What load cases you should consider

How will I benefit?

After this webinar you will be able to:

  • Understand code requirements for pipe stress analysis
  • Understand typical issues with pipe layout leading to high stresses or loads on supports and attached equipment
  • Judge when to carry out pipe stress analysis
