ourse participants in the ASME B31.3 Process Piping course will gain a complete and up-to-date overview of current topics on process piping. Those participants attending the Practical Piping Vibration course will become well-versed in the various factors that contribute to piping vibration (e.g., mechanical vibration, acoustic resonance, high frequency vibration, surge, slug flow, water hammer, etc.) and will be introduced to the basic methodology for assessing the severity of vibration and mitigating it in piping systems.

piping systems will be covered, as provided in API 570, Piping Inspection Code.

Practical Piping Vibration

This course provides a background on fundamental causes of piping vibration and how to identify sources of vibration, rules of thumb and simplified methods for evaluating vibration severity, and methods of treatment. A wide variety of causes of vibration are covered in order to enable the participant to properly evaluate the variety of piping vibration problems that can occur in piping systems. The causes of vibration, where possible, are discussed with respect to very basic energy and momentum principles that enable the participant to understand what is happening within and to the piping system. Each session will be conducted in a lecture/discussion/ problem solving format designed to provide intensive instruction and guidance on understanding code requirements and/or vibration concerns. The instructors will be available following each day's session to provide participants with further opportunity for discussion and consideration of specific problems. COUrSE FEES iNCLUDE:

Comprehensive Manual of Course Notes Lunch, Coffee & Snacks B31.3 Course Participants will receive a copy of Dr. Becht's book, Process Piping: The Complete Guide to ASME B31.3

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Both courses are designed for engineers, senior designers, maintenance, quality assurance, inspection and manufacturing personnel who work with process piping in the chemical, petroleum, plastic processing pulp and paper fields.

ASME B31.3 Process Piping - Design, Construction, and Mechanical Integrity

This course will review the basic requirements of the ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping with emphasis on B31.3 and comparisons with B31.1 - Power Piping. General topics in the course 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. Inspection and maintenance (mechanical integrity) of existing

DON FrikkEN is an internationally recognized authority in piping design. Now employed by Becht Engineering, Don had been with Solution, Inc. and Monsanto Company for 34 years; working on a wide range of activities including piping and mechanical design, project engineering, and engineering standards. However, Don's principal specialty is piping design, including design of complex piping systems, piping flexibility analysis, selection of piping components, development of piping standards and specifications, and developing and teaching numerous piping seminars and workshops. He is an ASME Fellow and is active on various ASME standards committees. He is past Chair of the ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code committee, past Chair of the B31 Standards Committee, which oversees all B31 Piping Code committees, member of the B16 Standards Committee, past member of the Board on Pressure Technology Codes and Standards, member of the Council on Standards and Certification, which oversees the development and maintenance of six hundred ASME codes and standards. Don has received a number of awards including the ASME Melvin R. Green Codes and Standards Medal, which recognizes outstanding contributions to the development of documents used in ASME programs of technical codification, standardization and certification. Don graduated with a BSME from Kansas State University and has a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla. Dr. CHArLES BECHT is a recognized authority in pressure vessels, piping, expansion joints, and elevated temperature design. He has more than 30 years of experience in design, design review, analysis, check-out, mechanical integrity, development, troubleshooting, and failure analysis. He has developed new components, design methods, and Code rules for severe service and other applications. Chuck, a licensed professional engineer in 17 states and provinces, is an ASME Fellow and has more than 50 publications and five patents and is a frequent speaker and chairman in technical forums. He received the ASME Dedicated Service Award in 2001 and was the recipient of the 2009 ASME Pressure Vessel and Piping Medal. He is President of Becht Engineering Co., Inc, President of Helidex, LLC, and Director of Sonomatic Ltd. His professional career began with Energy Systems Group, Rockwell International, where he became lead engineer in charge of elevated temperature piping and expansion joint R & D programs for Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactors and continued with Exxon Research and Engineering. He is a leader in Codes and Standards activities, and is currently the B31.3 Process Piping Section Committee Chair. Chuck received a PhD from Memorial University in Mechanical Engineering (Dissertation: Behavior of Bellows), a Master of Science degree from Stanford University in Structural Engineering and his B.S.C.E. from Union College, New York.
