Piping design involves a lot of visualization and creativity. The design, engineering and construction of process plants involve multidisciplinary team effort. A good designer knows not only how their designs are affected by other disciplines, but also how theirs affect the other disciplines. Piping design takes into consideration a vast amount of variables, for example: the type of product being piped, pipe specification, flexibility, constructability, future connections, and maintenance requirements to name a few. The objective is to design safe and dependable processing facilities in a cost effective manner.

This 6-hour course will cover the fundamental of plant layout, the equipment used, the piping design principles and procedures.

This course is Part 6 of a 9-part series that covers the entire gamut of piping engineering in an easy-to-learn format. Each course in the series is stand-alone. Feel free to jump back and forth through the courses depending on your own knowledge and experience and your current needs. However, it is suggested that you complete the series in sequential order if you have limited knowledge of piping systems.

This course is intended for mechanical engineers, chemical engineers, piping engineers, control systems engineers, as well as civil, structural and electrical engineers who have a need or a desire to know more about piping components and systems. No prerequisite knowledge of the subject is required.
