Industrial Piping Engineering

Industrial Piping Engineering
Mechanical Engineering

Familiarize with single and two-phase flow through pipes and  pressure drop calculations. Acquaint with pipe design, pipes, fittings, valves, supports, stress and flexibility analysis. Provide insight into ASME B 31 standards for power, process and hydrocarbons piping systems as well as pipeline construction

About the Course

Piping and pipeline engineering is a science and a specialized discipline of mechanical engineering that is seldom talked about in any university curriculum. The science behind piping engineering is extremely important for the safety of the process, personnel in the plant, the public staying nearby the plant, and the reliability of the plant. The piping system consists of pipes, pipe fittings, valves, and flanges. These are used to transport liquids, gases, and slurries. The contribution of piping systems to the process industry is undoubtedly remarkable and they are the arteries of industrial processes. Piping systems account for around 40% of the total process plant cost. Keeping its importance in the process industry, the course is intended to cover the hydraulics of piping systems subjected to both single and two-phase gas and liquid flows, pipe design, pipe stress analysis, pipe supports, cross-country onshore pipeline construction, and ASME B31.1-power piping, ASME B31.3-process piping. This course is embedded with practical problem-solving/case studies plus hands-on experience on pipe stress analysis, and 3D modeling software.

Learning Outcomes
  • Understand single and two-phase fluid flow dynamics in piping systems
  • Envisage two-phase flow regime formation for a given pipe diameter for specified fluid flow
  • Carry out the sizing of pipe subjected to internal pressure as well as external pressure, flexibility analysis using widely referred ASME B 31 standards
