Becht Engineering's 2 day Piping Vibration Analysis & Practical Engineering Solutions in Process Plants course provides a background on fundamental causes of piping vibration and how to identify sources of vibration, rules of thumb and simplified methods for evaluating vibration severity, and methods of treatment. A wide variety of causes of vibration are covered in order to enable the participant to properly evaluate the variety of piping vibration problems that can occur in piping systems. Causes of vibration are discussed with respect to very basic energy and momentum principles that enable the participant to understand what is happening within and to the piping system.  


Who Should Attend? This course is directed towards engineers responsible for operating piping systems. However, designers of new piping systems will also find the broad coverage of potential vibration problems a time saving briefing on the variety of vibration problems that can occur in piping systems.


Key Topics Covered Include: 

  • Mechanical Vibration Concepts
  • High Frequency Vibration (Shell Vibration)
  • Acoustic Resonance
  • Reciprocating Compressor Systems
  • Acoustic Fatigue (generally very rapid fatigue failures at locations of high pressure drop)
  • Surge (Pressure Wave Water Hammer)
  • Slug Flow (Water Hammer)
  • Piping Systems with Reciprocating Pumps
  • Other Sources of Vibration: Cavitation ● Vortex Shedding ● Flow Turbulence ● Wind ● Chattering Valves ● Pressure Relief ● Equipment Vibration ● Flashing ● Two-Phase Flow ● Earthquake
  • Practical Methods for Evaluating Piping Vibration Using Simple Rules
  • Piping Restraints
  • Overview of Solutions to Vibration Problems


Instructor: Don Frikken, PE, Becht Senior Engineering Advisor

Codeware COMPRESS ASME VIII pressure vessel design softwareCOMPRESS Software Training

Becht Engineering is excited to partner with Codeware, Inc. to present COMPRESS Software Training! We are now offering THREE types of courses, a 2.5-day Introduction to COMPRESS course, a 5-day course combining ASME Section VIII, Division 1 Design with COMPRESS training and a NEW 4-day Heat Exchanger Design with COMPRESS course!  Through instruction in a computer lab setting, students will gain hands-on experience using COMPRESS and working through the program and example problems along with the instructor.

Arrangements can also be made to have COMPRESS training courses taught privately at or near your site.
