This Advanced Casing Design course is a tubular fundamentals course including basic concepts of axial, burst, and collapse in addition to more advanced theory on biaxial, triaxial, and thermal loads including Annular Pressure Build-up (APB) and wellhead movement. This is a theoretical course and includes hand calculations and exercises. Participants are advised to complete this course prior to taking a StressCheck™ or WellCat™ course.
