About the course

CAESAR II is a software package for piping flexibility analysis with automated code compliance checks. It is easy to use and includes several advanced modules for specialized problems. CAESAR II can nowadays be seen as the “bread and butter” of any pipe stress engineer. This course is not only useful for beginning stress engineers, but can also provide valuable knowledge for those who need to be able to interpret pipe stress results such as supervisors and technicians. The aim of our course is therefore not only to become familiar with the basic use of CAESAR II but also to create an engineering understanding of the stress results.

The course is given by one of the experienced engineers from DRG who regularly use CAESAR II for their consultancy assignments. The course incorporates several real-life examples and our experience at DRG can serve to initiate discussions about different solution methods for stress problems taking into account all engineering aspects, both theoretical as practical.

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.


5-day course
