Target Audience Piping engineers and designers who need a greater understanding of code design and analysis requirements to produce a safe, economical piping system.
Objective Gain a clear understanding of how piping systems fail together with the requirements and guidance of the code to prevent such failures; Gain experience with the concerns and questions that must be addressed to produce a safe piping system and learn how and where to get these answers.
Course Content Day One: General Overview; Scope and Definitions; Applicability, similarities and differences between ASME B31 code and API standards for piping systems; ASME B31 Series; API Standards and Recommended Practices; Determination of Minimum Required Thickness; Pressure Design of Piping Components.

Day Two: Materials; Piping Components -Pipe-joining Methods; Piping Supports; Piping Flexibility Analysis; Typical requirements for construction of steel piping at Fermilab (Bid & Specs requirements); Requirements for verification of qualifications for fabricators.

Day Three: Fabrication and assembly; Welding processes; Welding Procedures; Welding qualification records and paperwork.

Day Four: Inspection -Reasons for Inspection; Inspection Plans; Inspection, Examination and Pressure Testing Practices; Inspection Data Evaluation, Analysis and Recording; Testing; Brittle Fracture; Inspection of Pressure-relieving Devices; Fermilab typical piping notes FESHM 5031.1; Policy and Requirements.
