P.G.D. - Piping Design Engineering as per ASME Codes

Indus is happy to introduce ourselves as leading professional training provider for Piping Design Engineering. This training programme creates immense opportunities for graduates in one of the fast growing engineering solutions called as P.G.D. in Piping Design Engineering as per ASME Codes.

Piping Design Engineers play a vital role in development or re-construction of Plants, related to Oil & Gas Industries, Power Plant, Fertilizers Industries and Food Industries etc. Piping Design Engineers will be involved from the planning stage to the functioning stage of the Plant. The major work of a Piping Design Engineer is to develop the General Assembly Drawing (GAD), routing Pipe’s, Generating Isometric Drawings, selecting Material of Construction & assuring the safety of pipe by performing Pipe Stress Analysis.

The program is designed in such a way that it caters the needs of both fresh graduates & experienced piping engineers who are seeking training of PDMS & CEASAR II.

The Plant Design Management System (PDMS) is one of the advanced and widely used 3D Modeling software for Piping Design. PDMS is a customizable, multi-user and multi-discipline, engineer controlled design software package for engineering, design and construction projects in, but not limited to, offshore and onshore Oil & Gas industry, chemical, process Plant, Mining, Pharmaceutical & food industry, Power Generation and Paper Industries.

The Pipe Stress Analysis plays an vital role in section & structure of pipe system. The pipe Stress Analysis is carried out to ensure the safe operation of Piping system by verifying their structural and pressure retaining integrity under the loading conditions postulated to occur during the life time of the Piping in the Plant.
