Presenter: Bob Wilson
Bob Wilson is a practicing piping design engineer. For more than 40 years he has been involved with the drafting, design, stress analysis, layout, support and construction of piping systems, working with petrochemical, power, steel, mining & processing companies in North America…More


Worldwide competitiveness is forcing the need to construct more effective piping systems, possible only if existing piping codes and standards are understood and intentions realized.

This intensive 4 day course brings you updated information on current Power Piping Code requirements and provides insight to how these requirements have evolved and what future changes in the Code may be expected. This course explores the background, rules and trends in piping design, analysis, and fabrication – vital elements of power, industrial and institutional plant construction and maintenance – within the context of meeting the requirements and intent of ASME B31.1 and its appendices.

Upon completion of this course, participants will have an understanding of:

  • Why the Code is intentionally simplified and how to deal with special and complex piping problems
  • The principal failure modes of piping components and structural design
  • The difference between pressure component design and structural
  • Layout and simplified analysis techniques
  • How to qualify non-standard fittings and joints
  • How to develop stress intensification factors

The course will also include an overview of Materials selection and limitations, Fabrication rules and their bases, Welding qualification requirements, Inspection, examination, and testing requirements.

This seminar explains the principle intentions of the Code and why the Code is not a handbook. Attendees come away from this seminar with a clear understanding of how piping systems fail & what the Code requires the designer, manufacturer, fabricator, supplier, erector, examiner, inspector and owner to do to prevent such failures. The focus of the seminar is to enhance participants understanding and application of the B31.3 Code. Instruction is further enhanced by in-class problem solving, directly applying the rules and equations of the B31.3 Code for specific design and operating conditions to illustrate correct applications.

Who Should Attend
Engineers entering the piping design and analysis field; practicing piping engineers requiring background on Code compliance and trends in piping design, analysis and fabrication; and QA/QC personnel.
