Materials Failure Analysis For Technical Personnel

Materials Failure Analysis For Technical Personnel

CODE: MFA

This is a 2 days specialized technical training on Materials Failure Analysis / Investigation for Engineering / Technical Management Personnel is specially designed for all field / practising engineers and technical managers as well as those specifically interested in conducting failure analyses and / or materials failure investigations themselves with a systematic approach that are commonly encountered with metallic materials during metallic production / fabrication. Furthermore, the participants can also gain an insight on the importance of quality control especially in the Oil & Gas, Petrochemical and Shipbuilding Industries.

Objectives

Through this technical training, technical managers and field/practicing engineers who intend to gain an appreciation on the systematic approach on any materials failure analysis/investigation can be realized, and thus to broaden their technical knowledge on the essence of any engineering materials usages relating to maintenance, inspection, alteration and repair of in-service metallic facilities/systems in order to avoid an unplanned shutdown and reduce unnecessary expenses. Essentially, they can make an in-situ sound decision whenever encountering any materials fractures and metallic system failures and even can make a sound decision as to run repair-replace during shutdown and maintenance planning.

In addition, this technical training can also provide a general guidance and recommended practice as to the most likely damage mechanisms for common metallic alloys used in the Oil & Gas and petrochemical industries. These guidelines also provide information that can be utilized by plant inspection personnel
including API 510 (Pressure Vessel Inspectors), API 570 (Piping Inspectors), API 653 (Plant Inspectors) and responsible discipline engineers to assist in identifying likely causes of damage, and are intended to introduce the concepts of service-induced deterioration and failure modes.
