Workshop on Structural & Thermal Analysis of Process & Powerplant components using ANSYS

About Course

This workshop is delivered online for design, engineering, maintenance, operations and FEM analysis team of process and powerplant industry component design, manufacturing units, service providers and OEMs. Workshop aims to cover basic to advanced knowledge on FEM enabled design evaluation, design verification and optimisation. Workshop will enrich knowledge on evaluating components for static, dynamic, linear, nonlinear, thermal and fatigue applications. Engineers from Petrochemical, Oil & Gas, Chemical Process, Refineries, Power plants can attend


Engineering Community is moving from conventional strength and stiffness-based design process to modern computational techniques-based design evaluation, validation to ensure the strength, durability, reliability and safety before the component or system used in service and also predictive modeling to ensure lower in-service failure.  Advanced simulation techniques are helping engineers associated with design, engineering, operations, inspection, maintenance, residual life assessment & extension, forensic studies in performing design evaluation and predictive modeling of safety critical component and systems.

This workshop aims to give a hands-on experience to the engineers from process and powerplant in performing structural, thermal evaluation and ASME Code (PV Sec VIII) qualifications, based on the stress evaluation approach using ANSYS – Multiphysics simulation software.

Two days workshop will cover from static to dynamic, linear to nonlinear, thermal, fatigue and Code qualifications on the selected components from process and powerplants. Also, problems associated with vibration, noise, cracks, failures will be discussed during the workshop.

Typical Components considered

Piping Pumps Valves
Boilers Cyclone Separators Heat Exchanger
Motors Turbines Coke Drum
Storage Tanks Furnace Distillation Column
Support Structures Pressure Vessel Cooling Towers
