The flexibility analysis of piping systems is carried out by skilled persons within engineering companies. The course is created and conducted by qualified professional engineers and is based on years of experience. The purpose of this course is to train flexibility analysis, to engineers with some years of experience in the piping discipline.

Course Format

This course consists of some study material in pdf, multiple-choice tests and case studies. The course emphasis is laid on the solution of practical designs and calculations with the help of the tutor. The participant receives feedback from the instructor via the discussion forum and web conferences.
