Intergraph CAESAR II training course facilitates you in exploring the fundamentals of pipe design and stress analysis. The training explains the concepts and its implementation through CAESAR II software. Through this software, the participants will explore different analysis including static pipe stress analysis, basic engineering concepts required for stress analysis along with advanced topics covering theory of load generation, and other critical systems.

Upon the completion of the training, you will inculcate the following skills:

  • Differentiate between primary and secondary stress
  • Analyze design code requirements
  • Identify ways to resolve overstress due to thermal expansion,
  • Work upon load case combinations and design system for Sustain, Expansion & Occasional Loading
  • Prepare stress Critical line list
  • Modeling and analysis of a transmission line, jacketed riser, hydrodynamic loading, and more
  • Work upon different models including Storage Tank-pump system modeling, Column-heat exchanger model, Pipe Rack CAESAR II Model, Equipment modeling
Target audience
