Pulsation & Vibration theory

About the course This course teaches you fundamental knowledge and understanding of pressure pulsations in piping due to reciprocating compressors in the context of API 618 analyses. By means of several real-life case studies you are thought the details of how pulsations are caused by compressors and what their consequences can be. Associated assessment methods such […]


About the course During this 2-day training, the participants will be introduced to the open-source CFD technology OpenFOAM®. The most commonly used CFD solver capabilities of OpenFOAM® will be explored, combined with an in-depth look in the structure of the Computational Fluid Dynamics Library, which forms the base of all OpenFOAM® fluid flow solvers.  The […]

Flow Assurance

About the course Flow assurance is about ensuring that fluid flows as intended in a pipe or a well. It relies heavily on well-established sciences like fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, discrete mathematics, automation, and computer science. However, even though the sciences are well established, flow assurance is developing very rapidly, and keeping […]

BOSpulse Foundations

About the course This course teaches you the fundamentals of pulsations in piping systems and a how to assess these pulsations based on the API 618 and API 674 codes. The course is intended for engineers involved in the acoustic and/or mechanical design of the piping upstream or downstream of a reciprocating equipment. You will be […]

Water Hammer Analysis using BOSfluids

About the course This course teaches you all the fundamentals of performing water hammer analysis using BOSfluids. Background knowledge about water hammer phenomena and analyses methods are provided as well as tutorials in performing such analyses in the BOSfluids software. Results are discussed in detail to provide a solid understanding of their interpretation. Next to different […]

Acoustic and Flow Induced Vibrations

CAESAR II Dynamic pipe stress

About the course Acoustic Induced Vibrations (AIV) and Flow Induced Vibrations (FIV) can cause piping systems to vibrate potentially resulting in fatigue failure. These excitation mechanisms are non-linear and strongly influenced by system settings such as valve openings and fluid velocity. Therefore, it can be difficult to predict the presence in new systems or the best remedial action […]
