On Demand Webinar: Detailed Flange Analysis with CAESAR II and EN-1591

Recorded Date: Thursday, September 12, 2019


The EN-1591 flange standard has grown in popularity for the economic benefits it can provide when assessing flanges and flange assemblies in piping projects. Join us on Thursday, September 12, to see how this sophisticated flange analysis method has been implemented in CAESAR II 2019, and experience the user-friendly features that automate the detailed input required for this standard. 

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • The major benefits of using EN-1591 versus the Taylor Forge method
  • The implementation of the EN-1591 standard in CAESAR II 2019
  • How to design and analyze standard and non-standard flange assemblies considering external loading and thermal expansion
