About this course


This course focuses on analyzing and calculating Acoustic Induced Vibrations (AIV) and Flow Induced Vibrations (FIV) in piping systems. It includes an introduction to vibration theories, common causes, and risk assessment. Modules cover methodologies for analyzing AIV and FIV, using paper-based assessments and visual inspections, and practical exercises. The course aims to equip engineers with the skills to identify, analyze, and mitigate risks associated with piping vibrations to prevent fatigue failures.
