Expansion Joints in CAESAR II

Learn how to better utilize CAESAR II, the established industry standard in pipe stress analysis. There are many ways to include expansion joint assemblies in your CAESAR II analysis including the simple “zero-length” joint, the convenient Expansion Joint Modeler, and the complex, detailed model. This webinar reviews the different types of assemblies available and discusses the wide range of modeling detail you may wish to use.

We will quickly cover the path through the entire process, including:

• Calculating demand

• Selecting the joint

• Creating the model

• Evaluating the joint
