Piping system is always need to be supported to prevent failure due to its self weight, operating pressure and temperature conditions etc. To decide the location and number of supports is very important as the wrong location of support may lead to failure of a whole system. This study is focused on the criterion of selection of piping support. The maximum span and deflection calculation is carried out and the piping system with intermediate support and without intermediate support is analysed in CAESAR II software. The two systems are compared and optimized the number of supports by considering the effect of support on nozzle loads and stresses.
