DRG offers webinars on a wide range of topics based on our engineering services:
DRG Webinars are held every first Wednesday of the month. Attendance is free and easy. Subscribe below for a specific webinar or subscribe to our mailing via the link below if you want to be updated regularly about the DRG Webinar schedule.
Together with Hexagon PPM (previously Intergraph), DRG is co-hosting a free webinar on the analysis of surge problems with CAESAR II and BOSfluids.
Surge problems in piping systems can have devastating effects on production and safety. The consequences of a surge that is not catered for in the design of a system include pipe clashes, support failures, equipment overload and pipe rupture. It is much better to prevent this with accurate analysis than cater for the effects after the event which can be extremely costly, cause injury and damage reputation. The tight integration between CAESAR II and BOSfluids makes this process quick and efficient.
Webinar date: Thursday June 29th 2017
Webinar time: 11:00 AM CEST

DRG is delighted to announce the Fastest modeling tool of piping systems: ISOtracer® v.1.0. Based on isometric drawings, ISOtracer will save the pipe stress engineer up to 50% valuable modeling time and costs. In ISOtracer the user automatically builds a 3D model by clicking along the routing instead of manually inputting every pipe element. The generated 3D piping model can be directly imported in common pipe stress software CAESAR II, Autopipe and Rohr2.

This DRG Webinar will cover differences in the engineering process of steel piping systems versus Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) piping systems. Both types of material have separate (dis)advantages and properties. For GRP the material properties are also different for the hoop and axial direction. This results in different approaches in the applicable design codes and deviating engineering knowledge is demanded. Also FRP failures manifest differently with respect to steel.
The GRP stress allowable values are provided by a stress envelope (hoop versus axial) rather than a fixed value. The different aspects involved to construct the GRP design envelope according ISO14692:2002 will be provided. Construction of design envelopes for GRP piping often leads to confusion. This is caused by fundamental differences in the piping properties with respect to steel and the different methods provided in codes.
For example, in contrast to the DIN code the ISO code does not apply a constant factor (x6) to obtain the long term envelope from the short term envelope obtained from burst tests. However, it used long term regression testing and qualification to obtain the GRP design envelope. This DRG Webinar will cover both theoretical backgrounds and practical issues related to projects performed by DRG in the past.
