About this course

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

During the program, the participants work solving real-life assignments, which require the students to produce real-life outputs. That is, the students have to review diagrams, plans, specifications. And then the students have to produce calculations, drawings, simulations, etc. The students have the continuous support from the instructor through discussion forums and weekly live web conferences with a webcam and shared screens. This interaction has proved to be very useful for the guidance of the students.
