This course explores piping stress analysis, covering stress classification, values, intensification, support elements, thermal expansions, and analysis in sustained, operational, and occasional cases, culminating in a real analysis exercise.


LENGTH: 3 months

PRICE: 1500 €

About this course


The course covers piping stress analysis, including classification, admissible stress values, and stress intensification on accessories. It explores basic support elements, thermal expansions, and sustained case analysis. Further topics include operational case analysis, focusing on expansion loops, static equipment thermal expansion, operational piping systems, and flange leakage. Occasional case analysis is also addressed, concluding with a real analysis exercise.
