CAESAR II can model many nonlinear restraint conditions that you may find in the field – liftoff supports, gaps and restraints, friction.  But in some situations, the interaction of these nonlinear conditions and the applied loads cannot be resolved using the F=KX approach used by most pipe stress packages today.  What do you do then?

This webinar will discuss the issue and present an approach to resolve the problem.

Speaker bio:

David Diehl graduated with a BSME from Lehigh University USA in 1976. Upon graduation, he took a post as a technical support representative for Auton Computing in New York City. After four years David relocated to Houston, Texas providing technical support for Auton’s Dynaflex – a mainframe-based piping system analysis program. In 1986, he took a position at CADWorx & Analysis Solutions introducing and selling CAESAR II, the world’s first PC-based pipe stress analysis package. While at CADWorx & Analysis Solutions, Dave earned his Professional Engineering license and served as the product manager for CAESAR II.  He currently is the lead instructor for CAESAR II and manages all training for CADWorx & Analysis Solutions. For the last ten years, Dave has participated in the B31.3 Section Committee and is a former chairman of the Design Task Group there. He also serves as a Director of SPED – the Society of Piping Engineers and Designers.
