About the course

How do you include the effects of pulsations, slug loads, blast loads, water hammer/surge and the opening of relief valves in your stress analysis? By learning how to use the dynamic module within CAESAR II you will be able to effectively conduct these types of analysis.
By using the full capability of the CAESAR II dynamic module, the engineer will be provided with a more accurate overview of the stresses in their system compared to a quasi-steady study. Thereby it may be that the required number of modifications are reduced or unforeseen failures are identified.
Various solvers are present in the CAESAR II dynamic module, namely: Modal, Time History, Harmonic and Spectrum Analyses. Which to select, and the parameters to choose, depends on the load case being analysed.
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.
