Webinar: Shake, rattle and grow – part II

Join us on 26 September 2018 for a free online training session and learn which kind of hold-down clamp to use, where and why.

By the end of this session you will learn how to:

  • Select the right clamp for the right situation
  • Eliminate constraints and unnecessary delays in your piping designs
  • Accommodate competing design requirements for pipes that shake, rattle and grow

Background

Many considerations are involved in trying to accommodate piping layout, stress and vibration at the same time. This webinar provides useful information for piping designers and pipe stress engineers to create more robust designs, eliminate unnecessary problems and delays, and control vibration more effectively.
 
In part 1 of this course (available on demand, but NOT a prerequisite), we introduced new piping stress modelling techniques and anti-vibration clamp supports for use in vibratory service. But with a range of different clamps designed for specific applications, knowing how to model a hold-down is only half the battle.
 
In part 2, our vibration engineers will provide examples of different applications for various hold-down clamps and the rationale behind selecting the right clamp for the right job. We will also share practical advice and address common questions around anti-vibration clamps and their application.

Who should attend

This training course is relevant to piping designers, pipe stress engineers, and anyone responsible for dealing with vibration in piping systems. The webinar is applicable to those working on new projects, redesigns of existing facilities, or those just trying to manage vibration problems in their operating plants.

Note: you do NOT need to have seen part 1 to understand part 2.

The session will take approximately 1.5 hours. All attendees will receive a certificate of completion that may be submitted for professional development hour (PDH) credits.*

*This webinar is intended to assist participants in retaining and expanding their knowledge base. Wood will provide a certificate of completion for attending the webinar. Acceptance as a professional development hour is at the discretion of the organisation that receives the submittal.

Our vibration analysis solutions are designed by engineers for engineers, fuelled by our deep understanding of design, operational and maintenance challenges.
