Intergraph®CAESAR II® Webinar: Better Piping Design Engineering with “More Applicable Data” Improved Analysis, Interoperability, and Export with CAESAR II and FEATools
Monday, October 24, 2016 10:00 a.m. CDT
Piping networks are modeled using beam-type components with stresses and flexibilities calculated using empirical formulas, such as those found in ASME Code for Pressure Piping B31.3 Appendix D. However, there are well-known limitations in the accuracy of these formulas. Depending on the situation, these empirical formulas can lead to overly conservative or optimistic results. These inadequacies within Appendix D have been acknowledged going all the way back to 1955. The engineer is advised to use “more applicable data” if available.
Piping design engineers are encouraged to attend this webinar to learn about the scope and general effects of upcoming changes currently planned to be included in the Non-Mandatory B31J – Standard Test Method for Determining Stress Intensification Factors for Metallic Piping Components. Please join experts from Intergraph and Paulin Research Group who will review the latest information from ASME Document STP-PT-073 on Stress Intensification Factors (SIFs), flexibility factors (k-factors), and Sustained Stress Indices (SSIs) used in the ASME B31.3 design code and how to easily evaluate and implement these in your next pipe stress analysis.
Attend this webinar to learn more about: • Quick history of empirical formulas vs. current real-world testing. • What does “more applicable data” actually mean and how do I get it? • Why is this so significant and what savings can I expect to realize? • Practical examples with CAESAR II through a live demonstration. • How do I submit my pipe stress models for translation, review, and comments?
