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
