DC PRO Redesigns Failing Support System for Oman Convention Facility Using CAESAR II


DC PRO Engineering, headquarters in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, is an engineering company that services in engineering design, consulting, and project management plus engineering reviews, feasibility studies, efficiency monitoring, and recommendations for energy performance improvement.

Selected to re-design the failing supporting system for the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre project, DC PRO used CAESAR II for the modifications needed to be designed within the original supporting system while rectifying the failing supports. They also verified the other existing supports after modifications to ensure no further failures would occur once in operation.

Using CAESAR II, they were able to save the client significant expenses compared to having to change the entire support system. They completed the project with minimal delay from schedule.

DC PRO received the 2017 CAESAR II Drivers of Success Runner-up Award for its use of the software. The annual Drivers of Success competition recognizes innovative applications of Hexagon PPM products, impressive project results, and significant benefits from collaboration among disciplines and the integration of the products.

CAESAR II Webinar: Using Load Case Multipliers to Expand Load Conditions


with Richard Ay, P.E., Vice President
Date: June 26, 2018
Time: 10 AM CDT click here to for your local time
Duration: 60 min
Cost: free eSeminar


Come experience the CAESAR II Static Load Case Editor in the live webinar with Richard Aye, P.E. The Static Load Case Editor is very powerful, providing complete control and customization of static load cases.

Expand your analysis capabilities of load conditions in the editor through the use ofload case multipliers. Learn how load case multipliers can extend loading conditions beyond what is specified in the piping input. Load case multipliers can be used to adjust the contribution of any linear load primitive.  Load case multipliers should not be used with non-linear load primitives, such as temperature.

Check out this webinar and attain a greater understanding of load primitives, load cases, load case multipliers, and the options in the Static Load Case Editor that provide a strong foundation for properly assessing the behavior of piping systems under a variety of operating scenarios.

Speaker bio:

Richard Ay is a registered professional engineer who serves as the vice president for analysis products. In 1985, at the request of Tony Paulin, one of the founders of COADE, Ay joined the company, which later became part of Intergraph. He has worked on the development of CAESAR II, TANK, product licensing, QA, technical support procedures, and technical presentations. Ay has previous experience at a major EPC firm and an offshore consulting firm. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Ocean Engineering and a master’s degree in Civil Engineering.

Hydrocarbon Engineering Article Showcases CADWorx and CAESAR II Success


The January issue of Hydrocarbon Engineering features the article “Take It Up A Notch.” Michael Smith and Jana Miller from Hexagon PPM discuss how ancillary design software can assist EPC contractors in both brownfield and greenfield projects.

The article features CAESAR II and CADWorx success stories from Rishabh Engineering and Vepica.

Satisfaction with your current situation can be a dangerous state. True leaders are always seeking ways to take it up a notch. Gaining a competitive edge in today’s economy is key for engineering companies to achieve success.

Rishabh Engineering has increased its workflow efficiency by taking advantage of advanced plant design and pipe stress analysis technology for brownfield projects. The company uses Hexagon PPM’s software solutions to assist with a variety of ancillary design services.

Vepica is another EPC that has addressed simultaneous engineering and fabrication challenges. It was able to complete a fractionation plant 15 percent faster using design software from Hexagon PPM.

Refinery piping stress analysis project

Rishabh Engineering was contracted by an EPC client to execute piping stress analysis of 100 systems (approximately 750 lines) of various units at a large refinery in Louisiana, US. Rishabh was appointed to perform piping stress analysis for 100 systems (approximately 750 lines) of various units. The project involved a total of 4,000 man-hours.

This project received the 2017 CAESAR II Drivers of Success Runner-Up Award.

Fractionation project

Basic Equipment Inc. selected Vepica to design the fractionation facility of a 25,000 BPD Atmospheric Distillation Unit (ADU) in Houston, Texas, US, for processing Crude A (API 38.2°) or Crude B (API 45.8°) in single crude streams or a combination of these two feed stocks. Effective communication among Vepica’s design teams was paramount to ensure they used the same design procedures to deliver quality results.

“Without CADWorx, costly clashes and interferences were common as were dimensioning and format errors for piping isometrics,” explained Jesus Espiga, piping engineer at Vepica.

Vepica received the 2016 CADWorx Drivers of Success Runner-Up Award for this project. Apply now for the 2018 Drivers of Success Awards.

CAESAR II Webinar: CAESAR II Stress Isometrics Using Isogen & I-Configure


with Jim Wilcox, P.Eng., President of CodeCAD Inc.

Date: Tuesday, February 13
Time: 
10:00 AM Houston / 5:00 PM Amsterdam click here for your local time
Duration
: 1 hour
Cost
: free eSeminar


This session will provide quick tips for customizing stress isometrics generated by CAESAR II.

 

While it is easy to create a default-format stress ISO with input/output/custom annotations in CAESAR II, it can be tricky to understand how to customize your own drawing style.

  • How do you incorporate your own border drawing and company logo?
  • How can you change text and line styles?
  • How do you populate the border of the drawing with the information you want to display?

Join this instructional session from a CAESAR II expert to take days out of the learning process and leap-frog you into creating customized ISOs.
