This advanced course will involve in depth analysis and re-modelling of existing basic stress calculations provided for each example

Over this period of 3 days, the following topics will be introduced at the appropriate section of modelling or analysis for the specific study in hand.


The topics shall include as follows:

Chosen option :

a) Pumps

b) Air coolers (Fin Fan)

c) compressors


Exercise – Rotating Equipment

  • Explore spring hanger selection techniques,
  • Using the default spring selector and compare against manual selection
  • Expansion joint modelling and evaluation
  • Analyze the system and identify the problem areas from the base piping model built.
  • Review calculation & output results
  • Determine problem areas and plan for remedy
  • Consider equipment nozzle alignment checks to ensure that sustained
  • Ensure loads from the piping are not imposed on the equipment nozzle and are within tolerances
  • Verification of API loads
  • Re-review output results and finalise the calculation


Note : A basic stress model for each exercise will be provided, the participants will be able to modify the model/s as the training progresses.
