Save up to $750 by enrolling in PD801, a four-day course combo, consisting of this course (PD799) and PD800, “Advance topics in QA, Materials, Fabrication and Construction of Nuclear Components.”
This is an advanced level course that is suitable for the designers and stress analysts, who are involved in designing the nuclear facility components. The course builds on the basic course that covers Section III. A detailed treatment of design by analysis is included. Limit Load calculation, Elastic-Plastic analysis, and experimental techniques are illustrated using examples for nuclear facility components. Fracture Mechanics methodologies are laid out for Appendix G calculation. Dynamic analysis including Waterhammer analysis and Seismic Loading are included with illustrative examples and case studies.
You will learn to:
- Apply Limit load / Elastic-Plastic analysis techniques to qualify reduced pressure boundary thicknesses in nuclear pressure vessels
- Employ alternate methods to calculate Stress Indices for qualifying piping systems for design that are not qualified using conservative indices.
- Apply advanced time history analysis techniques in Waterhammer and seismic analysis for the design of complex piping systems subject to severe dynamic loading.
- Design Nuclear Pressure boundaries subject to cyclic thermal and mechanical loading by applying the concepts of rain counting methods and Ke factors

Who Should Attend
Senior Engineers, Regulatory officials and stress analysis experts who are using advanced concepts in Section III will greatly benefit in attending the course. Professionals who have at least 5-10 years of design experience in the nuclear field for the design of nuclear facility components, items, appurtenances, and assemblies will be able to apply these concepts in their work.
