This Process Piping course provides the refinery engineer a practical understanding of the basics of piping design and analysis rules of the ASME Process Piping Code, B31.3 (ASME B31.3). The course covers an overview of the organization of ASME B31.3, including piping component and system design, material considerations, fabrication, and examination and testing.
The course focuses design loads for piping, design for internal pressure, piping flexibility analysis, branch reinforcement calculations, temperature considerations [flexibility and minimum design metal temperature (MDMT)], piping layout and support design, and equipment nozzle load limits of rotating equipment, heater, and air-cooled exchangers. In addition, the fundamentals of pipe vibration and mitigation techniques are discussed. The course consists of lectures interspersed with example problems that introduce concepts covered in the lectures. The focus of the course is design and analysis requirements, but it also includes practical information that comes from instructors who have worked for Owner-Users as well as in a consulting capacity.
Our training course materials are developed and instructed by subject matter experts – many of whom are principal contributors on the relevant ASME committees.
Upon completion of the the Process Piping course, students will have a basic understanding of the following:
This course is intended for engineers working for Owner-Users, manufacturers, or engineering and design construction firms in the refining/petrochemical and comparable industries. Engineers serving in a maintenance or reliability role whose responsibilities include the evaluation of process piping will also benefit.
