CAESAR II CAU2012 Express Class Preview
Dynamic Analysis Screening - a Qualitative Approach
As an analysis tool, most engineers would look to CAESAR II to calculate a stress in the pipe and compare it to a code-defined limit. But in evaluating the dynamic response of the system, clearly-defined dynamic loads or stress limits may not be available. This session will show how safety and reliability of these systems can still be evaluated in a qualitative, if not quantitative manner.
Using the Full Potential in CAESAR II Load Case Combinations
With the increase in model size and loads to consider, many engineers cannot identify worst cases so everything gets analyzed. FPSO piping is a good example with its weight, thermal, wind and high cycle hull motion loads creating well over 60 load cases. This session will provide guidance in building load cases, combining them and re-using them between models.
Creating useful drawings through CAESAR II with minimal expertise
Many uses require a quick means of relaying CAESAR II results (e.g. load, deflection, stress) to others in their organization – even a simple plot displaying model node numbers is important in relaying this information. This session will get piping engineers started in using the ISOGEN interface provided with CAESAR II.
Recent changes in B31.3 and What They Mean to You
ASME B31.3 is the practical world standard for evaluating process piping. There have been many recent changes to this code as it moves from its slide rule orientation to accepted computer applications. This session will review these changes and their impact on pipe stress analysis in general and CAESAR II specifically.
