ASME B31.3 2014

Introduction to Process Piping Design and Canadian Regulations

Date: Oct. 27-30, 2015
Location: Calgary, AB

This is an introductory level design course and the discussion includes an overview of piping flexibility (i.e., stress) analysis requirements but it is not intended to provide detailed instruction on flexibility analysis requirements. The objectives of this course are to provide an overview of the Canadian regulatory regime as it applies to pressure piping systems, including an overview of the relationship between provincial regulations, CSA B51, and ASME B31.3, and pertinent construction requirements (e.g., examination requirements, pressure testing, etc.); highlight areas where code requirements may not fully meet local Canadian regulatory requirements; reference applicable Code interpretations and local regulatory bulletins, notices, or advisories; enable students to understand the basic ASME B31.3 code design requirements, determine when ASME B31.3 applies, complete basic code design calculations, gain general understanding of the standards applicable to piping components commonly used in ASME B31.3 piping systems and the implications and/or limitations that these components may have in their piping designs, and understand how materials’ properties are considered in code design by providing a brief overview of materials properties.

Note: Due to the importance of the Oil and Gas Industry in Alberta, there will be a focus on local Alberta requirements but the course may touch on certain requirements in other jurisdictions as well (e.g., Offshore East Coast, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, etc.).

"I think that the way CASTI courses are presented is essential for practising, professional engineers in Alberta dealing with mechanical design, fabrication and construction. CASTI provides a great service to Alberta which is obvious by out of province people who attend the courses."
