I am a Mechanical Engineer turned into a Piping Engineer. Currently, I work in a reputed MNC as a Senior Piping Stress Engineer. I am very much passionate about blogging and always tried to do unique things. This website is my first venture into the world of blogging with the aim of connecting with other piping engineers around the world.

What is Flow-Induced Vibration (FIV) in a Piping System [With PDF]

What is Flow-Induced Vibration or FIV? Flow-Induced Vibration or FIV is a large-amplitude, low frequency (generally <100 Hz) vibration that can occur in piping systems carrying high-velocity turbulent fluids. Flow-induced i.e, the fluid flow generates high kinetic energy that forces the piping system to vibrate. It is more prevalent near the turbulent sources such as …

Thermal Bowing in Caesar II

Piping Thermal Bowing Consideration in Caesar II with an example [With PDF]

What is Piping Thermal Bowing? Piping Thermal Bowing or Bowing is an effect that occurs in horizontal piping run due to large circumferential temperature gradients which have the potential to cause large unacceptable local thermal stresses in the pipe walls leading to fatigue failure and high loads at pipe supports and connected equipment. The pipe …

Various Types of Fractional Distillation Process used in Process Plants [With PDF]

What is Fractional Distillation? Fractional Distillation or Distillation or Fractionation is the process of separation of components from a product or mixture (Crude Oil) by heating the mixture to a temperature at which several fractions of the compound will vaporize.  Normally when the mixture is heated, the component with the lowest boiling point will vaporize …

Pressure Vessel and Impact of Pressure

Understanding Pressure and Temperature in the context of Pressure Vessel Design [With PDF]

Many of the failures that we experience in the process industry are due to overpressure. Overpressure is the result of unbalance or disruption of normal flows of material and energy. This causes material or energy, or both, to build up in some part of the system. Overheating above design temperature may also result in overpressure, …

Load Cases for Stress Analysis of a Critical Piping System Using Caesar II [with PDF]

Piping Stress Analysis is simply creating the load cases required for analysis and study the impact of the same on the behavior of the critical piping systems. So Stress Analysis can not be thought without proper load case creation. Sometimes these load cases are mentioned in the piping stress analysis design basis. In this article, …
