About the course

Modern pipeline design enables the engineer to fully optimize and tailor each pipeline to specific needs. This course will give an understanding of the design philosophy of the pipeline design standard, teach how to perform simple wall thickness design and give an overview of relevant failure modes.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the design philosophy of pipeline standard
  • Perform simple wall thickness design
  • Gain an overview of relevant failure modes for pipeline design
