CAESAR II Fundamentals Courses

Improve your pipe stress analysis efficiency. This course guides you step-by-step as you learn to model your piping geometry, error check and analyze it, then review your results. Watch a brief overview video.

The course consists of a series of online videos that will give users the opportunity to quickly learn how to navigate and use many of the features in the software. Certificates are issued for each course completed.

The specially designed training program takes you step-by-step through modeling the three examples discussed in ASME B31.3 Piping Code, Appendix S using the CAESAR II pipe stress analysis software. The last lesson works with a line imported from a 3D CAD modeling system, and you'll use a number of software features as you edit the line to increase its flexibility. Learn more.

Course 1: Introduction

The course goes step-by-step through modeling the three examples discussed in ASME B31.3 using the CAESAR II pipe stress analysis software.

The course includes 33 comprehensive training videos as well as a 200+ page workbook that includes a copy of ASME B31.3, Appendix S.

Code-based examples

The CAESAR II models are built using the same measurements and parameters as code examples which are then analyzed, and the results compared to the code results. This gives the course an excellent basis around which to explore many of the screens, commands, and features available in CAESAR II.

Course 2: The Stiffness Method

F=KX: How piping system response to load is calculated in CAESAR II. This rather basic concept, F=KX, is the heart of CAESAR II. Every piping system component in your model is represented as a simple beam in bending using a stiffness matrix; all system boundaries are represented as stiffness vectors. The position of every node in your piping system (X) is then determined using this combined, global stiffness matrix (K) for each loading condition (F). This presentation will walk you through this process and give you a direct path from your input screen to the displacement report in CAESAR II. Such an understanding will be instrumental in setting your expectations from your CAESAR II analysis. (7 Videos)



Learn to effectively use CAESAR II at your own pace and move on to the next section when you want. Never be held back by the abilities of others. When you want to move to a new section or want to review a past lesson, you can do so when you are ready!

Who will benefit?

Engineers experienced in other piping software who want to round out their experience by learning the industry's de facto standard. Additionally, pipe stress engineers who want to learn or become more familiar with CAESAR II software. Engineers planning to attend CAESAR II Statics training at Intergraph, Houston, should also sign up to maximize their training value.
