new to Caesar II new to Caesar II elliottr (Mechanical) (OP) 15 Jan 18 19:36 what is a recommended resource for Caesar II when starting out. I am debating taking one of the online training courses. RE: new to Caesar II DSB123 (Mechanical) 16 Jan 18 14:40 Find a good seasoned pipe Stress Engineer as a mentor is my best advice. RE: new to Caesar II richay (Mechanical) 14 Feb 18 06:28 If you've performed flexibility analysis before, and you are experienced, picking up CAESAR II won't take more than a couple of hours. If you're completely new to pipe stress analysis and all associated tentacles, then you should take a course. I'd recommend the course from PipingDesignOnline.com, or come to one of our week-long seminars in Houston.

Yes, I am completely new to pipe stress analysis, so i am looking into taking the course one PipingDesignOnline.com. I don't think my company wants to send just me to houston, at least not at this time. RE: new to Caesar II DSB123 (Mechanical) 14 Feb 18 15:19 elliottr, Remember learning how to use a Pipe Stress Analysis program does not make you a Pipe Stress Engineer - that takes years of experience and study and working under a suitably qualified mentor. RE: new to Caesar II elliottr (Mechanical) (OP) 14 Feb 18 15:22 of course, I can't reasonably expect to be an expert on a subject after taking a few courses. There was an opportunity to start to learn it here, so I am.
