John C. Huang, Ph.D, PE
This material provides a basic understanding of thermal expansion in piping systems. Calculations are provided with an explanation of the terms used. Causes of pipe expansion are explored providing the engineer with a basic knowledge suitable for ensuring expansion problems do not develop in his designs or facility. A commonly used ASME test for pipe stress is introduced with calculations and techniques to correct expansion-caused stresses in piping systems.
References and a discussion of the available forms of coefficients for thermal expansion round out the data.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
