Length: 2 days
The rules of the ASME B31.1 and B31.3 Standards have considerations that can have a significant impact on the design of systems and associated equipment. This interactive, two-day MasterClass provides a thorough insight into the history and bases for the rules for piping design. The program provides a review of the detailed design procedures and a thorough explanation of the significant assumptions and available options. Through both presentation and discussion, attendees gain a greater appreciation and understanding of how these assumptions and options can impact their designs.
The class includes detailed example problems that demonstrate, for "real-world" piping, how the rules are to be applied, and how the options can influence the final design. Examples are reviewed showing how outputs from computer analysis can be broken down into understandable pieces and verified that the results are consistent with the actual behavior of the piping system.
On completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Define the analytical basis of piping design rules contained in either the ASME B31.1 Power Piping Code or ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code.
- Evaluate the significance of the modeling assumptions and how they affect the final design.
- Apply the step-by-step design logic for reviewing stress analysis outputs and determine how to locate and resolve problems.
- Interpret the significance of the calculated stresses and the importance of stress categories.

Who Should Attend
This MasterClass is an essential resource for piping engineers/designers, developers of piping analysis design software, as well as managers/supervisors of piping design activities.
This MasterClass is structured on the assumption that participants have a basic understanding of ASME B31.1 or B31.3 Piping Codes
