Expansion Joints

3 days (24 hours)

The content of the seminar:

The seminar will cover modelling ways of all types of expansion joints, from the simplest to the most complex ones. During the presentation of modelling of axial expansion joint, requirements to be met will be presented. For each type of expansion, an insight into simple modelling will be given, followed by detailed modelling of all components of the expansion joint. This will show the importance of detail modelling and realistic simulation of a real piping system.

Problems will be analyzed in a computer application CAESAR II, although problems can be solved on every other computer application for stress and flexibility analysis of piping systems. Each seminar participant will have access to a computer with CAESAR II.
