This course created by experienced piping stress analysis specialists covers all features of onshore above ground and underground piping and pipeline analysis. The course is based on PASS/START-PROF software applying, though it will be valuable for users of any other pipe stress analysis tools like CAESAR II as it contains a lot of theoretical information.
Who should attend: process, piping and mechanical engineers specialized in design and piping stress analysis for the specified industries:
Oil & Gas (Offshore/Onshore)
Chemical & Petrochemical
Power (Nuclear/ Non-Nuclear)
Training software: all trainees are provided with a free 30-days PASS/START-PROF license.
Certificate: After finishing the course you will receive the certificate from udemy and also certificate from PASS.
PASS/START-PROF provides comprehensive pipe stress analysis with related sizing calculations according to international and national codes and standards. First introduced in 1965, PASS/START-PROF combines a highly efficient solver, powerful analysis features, very friendly and easy user GUI, an intuitive 3D graphical pre/post-processor, and a detailed help system with embedded intelligence from generations of piping design experts.
Course consists of pre-recorded video lectures, quizzes, examples and handout materials.

Who this course is for:
- Junior and experienced piping design engineers and pipe stress engineers
Alex Matveev graduated with specialty bridges and tunnels civil engineer in 2001. After that he successfully defended his thesis on "Structural Mechanics" specialty, subject "the criteria for identifying the most dangerous elements and stability loss of structures" and get the Ph.D. degree.
In 2005 he took a position at PASS in the development team of START-PROF piping stress analysis software, the world’s first pipe stress analysis package (since 1965) and is industry standard in several countries for oil & gas, process, power, and district heating piping.
Now he is the head of development team of pipe stress analysis software PASS/START-PROF.
