Pulsation Analysis – BOSpulse
Pulsation Analysis using BOSpulse Training Course
This course teaches the participants the fundamentals of pulsations in piping systems and a how to assess these pulsations based on the API 618 and API 674 codes. The training course is intended for engineers involved in the acoustic and/or mechanical design of the piping upstream or downstream of a reciprocating equipment. The participants will be introduced to the theoretical background of pulsation analysis, and will then be led through how to conduct a code conforming analysis for reciprocating equipment using BOSpulse. BOSpulse makes it possible to investigate the impact of the pulsations due to reciprocating pumps and compressors in piping systems. The built in-code compliance assessments allows for easy evaluation of conformance with API618 or API674. The course will include how to effectively mitigate excessive pressure pulsations and how to model these mitigations correctly using BOSpulse. Detailed explanation of the effects of dampener configurations, bottles, and other pressure suppression methods will be illustrated using BOSpulse. The training course will be taught by an experienced engineer from DRG. The engineer is involved in pressure pulsation analysis on daily project work and is also actively working with the software team on the constant development of BOSpulse.
