Buried Piping Engineering Training Course

Are you actively involved with technical issues involving buried piping? Whether it is maintenance or design of a petrochemical plant or a company looking to expand from designing steel buried systems to using fiberglass, this training is the starting point to improve your technical knowledge and effectiveness in doing so.


During our 2-day training course Buried Piping Engineering you will learn the basic technical knowledge of soil mechanics and its influence on underground piping. The training course will provide you with a solid understanding of the different technical aspects involved in buried piping. This makes the training course especially valuable for piping engineers and provides valuable information for operators, supervisors, technicians, and plant managers.


The course is given by an experienced consultant from Dynaflow Research Group. The trainer will lead an interactive training including field examples and case studies. Participants are encouraged within the cases to contribute by identifying the potential problems and finding appropriate solutions.

Intended for:

Those involved in design, installation or maintenance of buried piping systems.



Basic engineering background in piping systems.
