Onshore underground pipeline, or sometime also known as buried pipe has been served in diverse application such as sewer lines, water distribution line, oil and gas distribution, from the source to the terminal point for further processing or to the end customer.
It is now becoming an absolute necessity to have an underground water system to serve as arteries to the cities since the water system is the lifeblood of the city, providing culinary, irrigation, and fire protection needed. Furthermore, now is becoming crucial to have the underground gas distribution system installed in the city to provide
Various parameters must be considered in the design of onshore underground pipeline system. However, it is crucial to pay much attention to the pipe material properties or the characteristic of the soil envelope surrounding the pipe.
In this course, we will be learning about the steps in designing Onshore Underground Pipeline, and will be delivered into Seven Lessons. To start your journey, please click the first lesson below.
Pipe support is one of the important and an integral part in the piping system which have the main job to control the weight effect of the piping system and make sure that the piping system will be properly supported for the entire its operation at any condition in order to avoid a mechanical failure of the metal due to excessive stress in pipe supporting elements.
Pipe Support can be categorized into two main groups, namely: 1) Standard Pipe Support, and 2) Special Pipe Support.
So, what is Standard Pipe Support? Standard pipe support is basically the type of pipe support which has been standardized for specific used based on the pipe sizes, acting vertical and horizontal load, and therefore can be used at several pipe support locations. On the other hand, Special Pipe Support is the type of pipe support which need to be designed for specific loads and for specific pipe support location.
In this course we will be learning about the type of standard pipe support normally used for Oil and Gas Application and will also be showing some of example for specific project. Before that, we will discuss about the codes and standards available for the pipe support, the terminology, the functions and the allowable span calculation.
Piping has played a major role in our life since ages ago. History showed us that the people from Indus Valley had been used piping system to deliver water into their houses. In Oil and Gas, piping is widely used to distribute oil from the wells into the manifold and further to the processing facilities before sending to customer for their daily use.
Crucially and importantly, piping plays major role in protecting life and property as fire protection piping networks in residential, commercial, industrial, and other buildings. If to the bodies they carry blood, then to modern civilization, the piping system carry life blood
In this course, we will be learning about the material normally used for Oil and Gas Facilities, and will be divided into 12 (twelve) lessons, starting with the type of pipe material, from metallic to non-metallic. We will be also learning the pipe sizes and pipe wall thickness, pipe properties, pipe fittings, pipe flanges, gaskets as well as bolts and nuts.
At the end of the course, there will be a quiz to test your understanding about the course and you will get certificate upon passing with 80% score.
Being able to perform Piping Stress Analysis either using Computer Program such as CAESAR II, or AUTOPIPE, or even to do some manual calculations, requires some understanding of basic knowledge in piping stress analysis such as, what is Piping Stress Analysis? Why do we need to do a stress analysis? What kind of skill or knowledge that we need to know in order to be able to do such a job?
Before we answer those questions, however, there are things that we should have known prior to that, for example, the knowledge about some basics piping stuff, such as piping material, pipe sizes, pipe schedule, pipe fittings, as well as pipe support, which is given in my separate courses.
This course will provide the very basic theory of piping stress analysis and divides into TEN(10) lessons starting with the function and method of stress analysis, followed by the understanding of stress category, Allowable Stress, Wall Thickness Calculation, properties of the pipes, thermal expansion, and many more.
