Step-by-Step: Piping Stress Analysis with CAESAR II
This course is currently closed
This course about the step need to be taken before starting the Piping Stress Analysis using Computer, for any pping system that need to do fomral analysis. I gather this step-by-step based on more of 28 years of my experience performing Piping Stress Analysis using CAESAR II and AUTOPIPE.
We will start with Stress Sketch preparation, in Lesson-1, which is basically collecting or gathering all of data required to do Piping Stress Analysis such as pipe datas, equipment datas, design data, and piping general arrangement drawings. Then, we can calculate the initial nozzle movement for lines connected to equipment as well as pipe support settlement or also anchor movement, in Lesson-2.
Once the datas all above are ready, then we can start to make a Piping Stress sketch where we will mark nodes point and pipe support type at every possible location in the piping system as well as all of necessary information which will be needed when inputting into CAESAR II or AUTOPIPER Computer program. This is part of Lesson: 3:.
At this stage, our Sress Sketch is completed and ready for the stress guy to input into the CAESAR II or AUTOPIPE. However, before he start, we need to decide what LOAD CASE needed for analysis. In this Lesson-4 we will show the LOAD CASES for CAESAR II Program. Then the process of Input Data into CAESAR II program or AUOTPIPE can commence.
After completed the input, we start the analysis by hitting the RUN button, followed by reviewing the OUTPUT. I this Lesson-5: Quality Check we will be doing quality check of the INPUT and OUTPUT. Once quality check completed, the result can be validated and all of necessary information will be recorded and sent to respective and related discipline as required.
Finally, in Lesson-6, there will be some sample of load cases as well as sample configuration for system connected to equipment such as pumps, pressure vessel, and compressors. This lesson wil conclude our course in step by step and should provide you with quite information of what to do when starting the piping stress analysis job for first time.
