Analysis of Surge problems with CAESAR II and BOSfluids 5.4

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

November 1

“Why do I need more reliable SIFs for my pipe stress analysis?”

Time:4pm CEST (View your local time)
Duration:30 min.
Cost:free
Presenter:Daniel van Baalen MSc (Senior Engineer)

Registration for this webinar is no longer available.

The SIFs and flexibilities in Appendix D of the ASME B31.3 are for use in the absence of more directly applicable data. The engineer is encouraged to use more reliable SIFs and flexibilities in their piping analysis. In this webinar the possible errors that results from using flexibilities and SIFs according to B31.3 Appendix D are discussed. It is shown that incorrect stiffness and SIFs of pipe fittings may greatly affect your stress results. An example where tank nozzle loads are underestimated greatly by inaccurate flexibilities in tees is provided. This webinar focusses on how errors related to inaccurate flexibitlies and SIFs can be prevented. In addition the tools discussed in this webinar help to generate a more reliable pipe stress model.

“Using CFD to improve industrial equipment design”

Time:4pm CEST (View your local time)
Duration:30 min.
Cost:free
Presenter:Frank Bos PhD. MSc (Project Engineer)

It is not possible to register for this webinar

DRG is hosting this free webinar on how to use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods to improve industrial equipment design. Most designs of industrial equipment are based on years of experience and analytical solutions for simplified problems. In order to improve the designs even further it is often required to use modern CFD techniques to study the flow field or relevant performance indicators.

 

This webinar introduces the concept of Computational Fluid Dynamics in combination with the capabilities, advantages and its drawbacks. The benefits of CFD for optimizing industrial equipment are illustrated using realistic examples. In addition, the CFD workflow is described in detail for a typical project by applying the software HELYX CFD (based on OpenFOAM) to show that CFD does not have to be complicated. Recent developments made it possible to apply full CFD methods on a desktop PC without the assumptions made in simplified engineering CFD plugins that are present in other CAD packages.
