MECH7022 - 3D Piping Design

banner1
Title:3D Piping Design
Long Title:3D Piping Design
Module Code:MECH7022
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Intermediate
Field of Study: Mechanical Engineering
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2013/14 ( September 2013 )
Module Delivered in 2 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: NIALL MORRIS
Module Author: WILLIAM BATEMAN
Module Description: In this module the learner will use piping software such as AutoCAD Plant 3D and AutoCAD P&ID to produce pipework drawings. The learners will produce P&ID’s, equipment layouts and piping systems by drawing in 2D, Isometric and 3D. From the information stored within the software Material Take Off lists will be generated.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Use Industry Specific 3D piping software
LO2 Convey piping requirements graphically
LO3 Design and produce 2D and 3D equipment layout drawings
LO4 Produce Material Take Off lists using the drawing software
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
