What to expect when attending

The course shall provide an introduction to all aspects of conducting Finite Element Analysis of pressure vessels and piping.

The course is intended to provide mechanical engineers without prior knowledge of FEA the necessary knowledge and skills to start solving design / analysis problems by Finite Element Method.

 

The course starts by providing a general theoretical background about the FE method which is essential and applicable to

all FE software. The course, then, provides a step by step presentation of building the model, applying boundary conditions and loads and evaluating results. The course will present detailed examples of the application of ANSYS in the solution of stress analysis problems of pressure vessels and piping. The important topic of ASME criteria and requirements regarding stress analysis of pressure vessels and piping will be covered.

 

ANSYS Mechanical APDL and its powerful scripting language shall be used for the solution of the FEA applications. It is the foundation for all sophisticated features and offers many capabilities such as parameterization, macros, branching and looping, and complex math operations.

 

This is a theoretical course. Chempute Software will provide PDF training notes and course completion certificate.

We are pleased to extend a 10% discount on every second, third, and subsequent registration from the same company for this course.

CAESAR II Statics

This course is for engineers/analysts who carry out Static stress analysis on piping systems

The class includes a basic introduction to the software (interface, simple data input, editing etc. and then goes on to develop further skills by using CAESAR II software to resolve typical everyday piping problems.

Provides a wide array of features without sacrificing your need for a short learning curve

It also covers design code stresses, output interpretation and creating reports amongst many other subjects.

Delegates should have an appreciation for Mechanical Engineering theory and principles. Qualifications would typically be a Degree or HNC/HND in Mechanical engineering, Chemical Engineering or relevant experience.
