Smart Simulation & Sizing Tools for Every Piping and Equipment Engineer/Designer

16 November 2020

PSRE Co. participated at Plant Engineering Workshop 2020

PSRE Co., the leading developer of smart simulation and sizing tools for every piping and equipment engineer/designer, participated at the Plant Engineering Workshop 2020 which took place on 19 - 23 October 2020.

The event organized by InIPED has been held via web conferences. The workshop aimed to promote new developments in the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Operation and Maintenance business, gathered almost 650 participants from 67 engineering companies.

Dr. Alex Matveev, Head of Pipe Stress Analysis Department, PSRE Co, presented three topics which gained the most number of views.

1. Importance of Bourdon Effect

The Bourdon effect is meaningful and must be considered while long pipeline systems analyzing to avoid pipe deformations, high stresses and buckling. The Bourdon Effect also must be considered for analyzing of plastic piping systems like PE, HDPE, GRE, FRP, GRP systems.

2. Several ASME B31 and EN13480 Issues Needed to Know by Any Pipe Stress Engineer

ASME B31 and EN 13480 codes have several issues that can lead to under-estimation of sustained and expansion stresses and tee stresses when using pipe stress analysis software. Pipe stress engineers should know about these issues to avoid wrong and unsafe design.

3. Several Practical Topics of Pipe Analysis

During the workshop, several typical topics have been observed, followed ‘how to do’ demonstration of PASS/START-PROF.

In addition to attending workshops, the participants were able to communicate with each other and with the speakers. Thus, the event became an important platform for industry experts and specialists.
