Caesar II Dynamic

About The Course

How to incorporate pulsations, slug loads, blast loads, water hammer/surge, and relief valve opening effects into your stress analysis? By learning how to use the dynamic module within CAESAR II, you can proficiently conduct such analyses.

Leveraging the full potential of CAESAR II’s dynamic module provides engineers with a more precise assessment of system stresses in comparison to quasi-steady studies. This enhanced accuracy can potentially reduce the required number of modifications and uncover unforeseen failures.

CAESAR II’s dynamic module offers various solvers, including Modal, Time History, Harmonic, and Spectrum Analyses. The selection of the solver and parameters depends on the specific load case under analysis.

DRG/Hexagon PPM
This training is organized in cooperation with Hexagon PPM. The training will be presented by DRG at the DRG office, but the administration process will be handled by Hexagon PPM.
