Design of Piping Support


SKU: N/A Categories: ,




Piping supports are integral components of process piping system. Improper design and sizing of the components can result in accidents, fatalities and loss of revenue.
This course will provide engineers with the understanding of the behavior of piping systems under potential loading, which is a pre-requisite for proper stress analysis.
