Stress Engineering

Every piping system is subjected to different loads during its design life which develops stresses in the system. To ensure the safety of the installation, the piping system needs to be stress analyzed to meet the requirements of the design code.

Piping Stress Analysis is one of ZONE ENGINEERING B.V. core business. We use CAESAR II The world’s most widely used pipe flexibility and stress analysis software, CAESAR II is a complete solution that enables quick and accurate analysis of piping systems subjected to a wide variety of loads, taking into account weight, pressure, thermal, seismic and other static and dynamic conditions, based on user-defined variables and accepted industry guidelines.

Our pipe stress engineering team is well-versed with international codes such:

  • ASME B31.1 (Power Piping)
  • B31.3 (Process Piping)
