I am often asked about the difference between Piping Design and Piping Engineering

There are two distinct trajectories into piping: Designer and Engineer. The piping engineer specializes in applied physics and chemistry. The piping designer specializes in applied “ilities,” i.e., fabricatability, constructability, operability, maintainability, etc. This article deals with the piping designer.

CADWorx and Analysis University Returns to Houston
Article and photo by Bill Beazley
The popular CADWorx and Analysis University (CAU) program has returned to Houston after a few years’ absence. CAU is produced by Intergraph CADWorx and Analysis Systems. The program had been co‐located with the Hexagon Live program in Las Vegas. Hexagon is the parent company of Intergraph
CAU is known for quality presentations from practitioners who use ICAS tools, including:
- CAESAR II
- GT Strudl
Presentations also include add‐ons and complementary software from other vendors.
Many customers had found it hard to gain approval for travel to Las Vegas. In addition, CAU lost its unique and distinctive technical character amongst the broad array of Hexagon products. Hexagon, in addition to Intergraph’s products, offers software and hardware for manufacturing, surveying, mapping and other applications. A large number of Intergraph and ICAS customers work in the Houston area.
CAU 2016 continues for two days followed by a special symposium. For more information, consult:
