On-Demand: Improved Equipment Modeling with CAESAR II

Recorded Date: October 27, 2020


CAESAR II equipment and component analysis modules define and check vessels, flanges, turbines, compressors, pumps and heat exchangers for excessive piping loads. The rewrite of the CAESAR II equipment module provides users with more capable methods to evaluate nozzle acceptance criteria. This new and improved equipment module allows users to model multiple types of equipment, multiple instances of the same equipment type, and multiple load cases, all in a single model and analysis. CAESAR II expert Richard Ay will discuss the new interface and illustrate how it can be used effectively, along with a live demo that illustrates the new capabilities and suggested workflow.
