This course about the step by step of performing piping stress analysis using Computer programs such as CAESAR II. At this point, you would have already known which piping system to be analysed, based on Critical Line list created by Lead Piping Stress Engineer. So, you are now having with you the calculation number, line number, and most importantly knows the starting point and end point of the calculation. Both starting and end point are treated as an Anchor point.
2 major things need to be prepared and make it ready in order for you to be able to start your Piping Stress Analysis calculation with CAESAR II:
1. Stress Sketch, completed with required information.
2. CAESAR II Program, has been setup to the project requirement.
Firstly, is to have a Piping Stress Analysis Isometric Stress Sketch ready fo the job, this process called as a Stress Sketch preparation which is basically making the piping isomteric ready to be input into CAESAR II. The work starts with collecting or gathering all of required data; such as pipes, fittings, valves data, equipment design data, process condition, pipe support standard, piping general arrangement drawings, civil/pipe rack drawings, and could also the piping isometric. With this information, we can start the process of making the stress sketch.
Secondly, once the stress sketch ready, we need to make sure also, that CAESAR II is ready. Meaning, has been installed properly, has been setting up in accordance to the specific project requirement and ready to be used for the analysis.
It is very important to note here that, at this stage, the piping stress critical line list should have been prepared and officially approved by the Project Manager, along with other related project piping standard and specification to be used for the specific project.
The course will be divided into 5 lessons as detail below:
|1. Preparing Stress Sketch|
|2. Calculate Initial Movement|
|3. Determining Load Cases|
|4. CAESAR II Input and Analysis|
|5. Final Report|
