with Richard Ay, Hexagon

Duration: 1 hour
Cost: free eSeminar
With the publication of B31.3 2014, the code now requires that the sustained stresses be evaluated in all conditions of the piping system, so that the maximum sustained stress at each node can be used in the determination of the allowable stress for the expansion load case(s).
This webinar, “The CAESAR II Alternate Sustained Case,” will investigate how varying conditions (operating cases) of the piping system can lead to different sustained stresses. Discussion will follow on how non-linear boundary condition behavior causes these different sustained states, and how CAESAR II can automate the evaluation of all such states without requiring the user to manually adjust the piping model.
