This course will help engineers involved in the operation, design and maintenance of pressurised equipment to develop a complete method for analysing, evaluating and monitoring it. Examine how the disciplines of stress analysis, materials engineering and non-destructive evaluation interact and apply to API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 2007.
Key Learning Outcomes:
Review the sections of API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 2007 used for assessing brittle fracture, crack-like defects, corrosion and creep.
Understand and apply background information on FFS assessment Analyse, evaluate, and monitor pressurised equipment for continued operation.
Examine damage mechanisms and the importance of identification Solve example problems on the practical application of the techniques incorporated in API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 2007.
The relationship between API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 2007 and other FFS standards.
Overview of remaining life assessment, remediation, and methods to extend the life of damaged equipment.
About the Course: Fitness-For-Service (FFS) assessment is a multi-disciplinary quantitative engineering approach to determine whether equipment is suitable for continued operation. The pressurised structure or component of interest may contain flaws or other damage, or may be subjected to more severe operating conditions than anticipated by the original design. The outcome of a FFS assessment is a decision to run the component as-is, alter it, repair it, or replace it. A remaining life assessment may be performed as part of a FFS evaluation in order to determine how long the asset can be operated safely or to define appropriate inspection intervals. This course provides training on the application of API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, a standard jointly published by the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Example problems will be worked through to provide participants with a detailed understanding of the various FFS calculations.
