ASME B31.3 Process Piping
Objectives

  • This course is designed to increase knowledge in the area of piping in general and process piping in specific. This advanced, fast-paced program provides the participants with working knowledge of the design philosophy and engineering practices employed in the design, fabrication and erection/commissioning requirements of process piping's.
  • Many of the derivations of the formulas used in ASME Section 31.3 are discussed to satisfy design and construction requirements on practical grounds. Hands-on design problem solving is integrated throughout the program.
