VIBRATION-INDUCED PIPEWORK FAILURE

Vibration-induced fatigue in process piping systems is an important failure mechanism. It is therefore essential to control these issues from project design stages in order to minimize risks.

TRAINING PROGRAM PRESENTATION

Goals
Apprehend piping vibration issues
Understand current screening & assessment methods for potentially critical lines
Differentiate theoretical methods for calculating ‘Likelihood of Failure (LOF)
Define what constitutes ‘good practice’ for avoiding vibration-induced fatigue problems
3rd day: Perform dynamic calculations using CAESAR II software.
