This course is run exclusively by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the internationally recognised leader in training for engineers and technical professionals.
The ASME B31.1 Power Piping Code and B31.3 Process Piping Code set down the analysis requirements for piping. This course provides an in-depth review of the rules and practical applications of the codes by the organisation responsible for them.
This practical two-day course provides a review of the significant assumptions and available options in piping design. Through both presentation and discussion, attendees will gain a greater understanding of how these assumptions can affect design.
The course includes detailed, real-world problem examples that demonstrate how the rules should be applied and how this application can influence final designs.
Each student must bring his or her own calculator.
This course is has been designed for participants with a basic understanding of ASME B31.1 or B31.3 Piping Codes.
If you have that existing knowledge, this course is an essential resource for piping engineers and designers, developers of piping analysis design software, as well as managers and supervisors of piping design.
