Intergraph®CAESAR II® Webinar: Water Hammer Evaluation
Thursday, March 23, 2017 10:00 a.m. CDT
Sudden changes in flow in piping systems cause pressure fluctuations and unbalanced forces, particularly between changes in direction, such as at elbow pairs. But, these also occur at changes in area, such as valves, reducers, and other inline components.
It is not uncommon for these forces to cause damage when a system is not properly designed to accommodate them. This can result in failed supports, overloaded equipment, large displacements, and sometimes component failures.
Predicting these loads by hand can sometimes be impossible (or at least impractical), so engineers typically use software to predict the magnitude, direction, and variation of these loads over time. Once you establish the loading profiles, you must then predict how these loads will affect your piping system.
Attend this webinar to learn how you can generate the required force-time data using AFT Impulse transient analysis software. See a demonstration of how you can use the force-time data in CAESAR II to predict the system response using spectral and time-history analyses.
