Training Course & Workshop on Process Piping in Accordance with ASME B31.3

Workshop Objectives
The aim of this workshop is to provide the participants with an overview of the area of Piping Technology with an emphasis on process piping. The workshop covers design, fabrication, examination and testing requirements of ASME B31.3. It covers Code requirements from design through start-up of new piping systems, as well as standards for inspection and repair of piping systems that have been in service, as provided in API 570, Piping Inspection Code.

This workshop provides a foundation of knowledge necessary for those responsible for assuring the mechanical integrity of existing piping systems, as well as those responsible for designing and constructing new piping systems.
Workshop Contents
The workshop will review the basic requirements of the ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping with emphasis on B31.3, Process Piping. General topics in the workshop include Code organization and intent, pressure design, design for sustained loads including support design, flexibility analysis, equipment loads, flanges, expansion joints, supports and restraints, materials, fabrication, examination, testing, and, for existing piping systems, mechanical integrity. Applications of these concepts, including simple hand analysis methods and computer based analysis methods, will be demonstrated. Included will be comparisons between ASME B31.3 and ASME B31.1, Power Piping. Inspection and maintenance (mechanical integrity) of existing piping systems will be covered, as provided in API 570, Piping Inspection Code.

Each session will be conducted in a lecture/discussion/problem solving format designed to provide intensive instruction and guidance on understanding Code requirements. The instructors will be available following each day’s session to provide participants with further opportunity for discussion and consideration of specific problems.
