Materials Failure Analysis For Technical Personnel
This is a three-day specialized technical training on Materials Failure Analysis / Investigation for Engineering / Technical Management Personnel is specially designed for all field/practicing 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.
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.
