Pipeline Defect Assessment Workshop
November 19-21, 2014
|November 21:||8am – noon|
This course is a follow-on to the famous Defect Assessment in Pipelines course taught by Dr Phil Hopkins and his colleagues at Penspen Integrity. It takes those who want to apply all the methods covered in Defect Assessment in Pipelines to the next level; it goes into greater depth on the various defect assessment methodologies and provides participants with hands-on practical experience performing calculations based on them. Cases and problems worked in class will be based on actual inspections of working pipeline systems. The course addresses both traditional pipeline methodologies as well as recent innovations, including the API 579 Fitness-for-Service Standard.
All presentation material will be documented in digital form on a CD as an Adobe Acrobat document. In addition participants will receive macro-enabled Excel spreadsheets that perform various calculations, including effective area metal loss assessment and pressure-cycle fatigue analysis. Attendees will also receive a copy of Fracture Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications, 3rd Ed. by T.L. Anderson (a $110 value).
Upon completion of the course, participants will be eligible to receive 1.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
