During the design phase of a project, many companies allocate identifiers to the many support types required on piping systems. It is often a requirement that these support/hanger identifiers are recognized by or added to the pipe stress analysis model and maintained to the deliverables stage. CAESAR II 2018 includes this highly-requested support identifier capability.
Join us for this CAESAR II webinar to learn how to create support tags during design, and how CAESAR II carries the identifiers through to output. If required, engineers can also add support tags during stress analysis.
What is the purpose of the webinar?
To illustrate how CAESAR II recognizes support tags and unique identifiers added during 3D design and includes them within PCF data, and imports the tags into the software with many other attributes. Learn how you can add this data also at the engineering stage, rather than design.
What is the value of this information?
For piping systems which require stress analysis (e.g., critical systems), unique identifiers associated with pipe supports and hangers are often lost at the deliverables stage because stress analysis software does not inherently require it. Adding the data later is time-consuming and costly to the project. Therefore, carrying tags through the design/engineering process improves project efficiency.
What will the webinar show?
- The inclusion of support identifier information within a fully populated PCF
- How the information is imported and displayed within CAESAR II
- How PCFs, using mapping files, provide a complete solution and eliminate the need for engineers to spend time re-creating existing data
- The export of support information from CAESAR II
- The display of support identifier information within deliverables
Who should attend?
Managers, CAE Specialists, Mechanical and Piping Engineers and power users from companies active in the following industries: Oil & Gas, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Petrochemical, Power (Nuclear and Non-Nuclear) and any industry where piping system support information needs to be carried through the design-engineering workflow.
