Vibration Risk Assessment of piping systems is a major business activity of CCPGE. Piping vibration can be caused by multiple factors, including Flow Induced Turbulence (FIT), Flow Induced Pulsation (FIP), Acoustic Induced Vibration (AIV), Small Bore Connection (SBC), etc. The purpose of vibration risk assessment is to reduce the risk of piping vibration failure.
CCPGE uses VibTech quantitative assessment tools, together with Bentley PULS and AutoPIPE software, to conduct piping vibration risk assessment in accordance with the Energy Institute Guidelines for the Avoidance of Vibration Induced Fatigue Failure in Process Pipework, second edition (2008)
Below is an off-shore platform piping system which had undergone piping vibration risk assessment (FIT, FIP, AIV, and SBC, etc.) at the design stage by CCPGE for the purpose of improving the reliability of piping system design.
