Setting Boundaries to Your Piping Models
While most modeling approaches are consistent between piping engineers, there is still a wide variation in methods for termination of the model. Is it an anchor? Or, can it move? If so, how?
The models that answer these rather simple questions may produce a similar wide range in results. Which model is more right? Which model is good enough?
This presentation will review points to consider when ending your CAESAR II models. A variety of examples will be discussed.
David Diehl, P.E., serves as executive technical director of CADWorx & Analysis Solutions Training at Hexagon PPM. Diehl is the lead instructor for CAESAR II and the principal author of the CAESAR II online training course (available at www.pipingdesignonline.com). In 1986, he joined COADE (now part of Hexagon PPM) introducing CAESAR II – the world’s first PC-based pipe stress analysis package. He served as a Director for the Society of Piping Engineers and Designers (SPED) for 16 years. In 1999, Diehl joined the B31.3 Process Piping Committee and has since served as Chair of the B31.3 Subgroup on Design and also Vice-Chair of B31.3. He is the current Chair of the B31.3 Process Piping Committee. Diehl holds a BSME from Lehigh University.
