Last Thursday, November 19th, COADE gave the keynote to fifty attendees of the first COADE CAESAR II User group - Houston meeting.
David Diehl, COADE's VP Customer Experience and Richard Ay, VP Development, Plant Engineering Solutions outlined the changes in versions 5.10 and 5.20 in COADE's CAESAR II pipe stress analysis program. Both Diehl and Ay fielded questions from attendees on how to get the best from CAESAR II.
The event was organized and MC'd by Dharam Arya, PE of Mustand Engineering, Houston, Texas. Mr. Arya's ongoing aim for this user group is to encourage end-user cooperation in the development of best practices in pipe stress analysis amongst COADE CAESAR II users.
Immediate plans are to set up a steering committee for the group to plan next steps and its future direction. More on this at a later date.
