MTS 02 Failure and Damage Mechanisms of Pressurized Equipment in General
MTS 03: Failure and Damage Mechanisms of Pressurized Equipment in Refining/
Petrochemical Industries (with reference to API 571)

Deeper understanding of the failure and damage mechanisms through case studies, comprehensive presentation of metallurgical and scientific evidence with explanation of the fundamentals behind the respective mechanisms. Introduction of the concepts of metallurgical failure analysis, which would help participants on diagnosing failure and damage mechanisms.

ASME and API codes are commonly referred to for the design, fabrication, inspection, and testing of pressurized equipment. Failure and damage mechanisms during service are however generally not addressed in these codes. Understanding and determining the causes of failure or degradation is essential when conducting a general inspection, fitness-for-service (FFS) assessment or risk-based-inspection (RBI) of an equipment or plant.

As determination of the cause of failures/degradation can be quite complex due to widely varying material/environmental condition interactions in most plants, API Recommended Practice 571 was published to provide information and general guidelines to assist inspection personnel and engineers in identifying likely causes of damage, as well as to introduce the concepts of service-induced deterioration and failure modes.

While API 571 does serve its purpose well, this training course aims to provide participants with deeper understanding of the failure/damage mechanisms through case studies, comprehensive presentation of metallurgical/scientific evidence and explanation of the fundamentals behind the respective mechanisms. The course also introduces the concepts of metallurgical failure analysis, which would help participants on diagnosing failure and damage mechanisms.

OBJECTIVES

The training provides participants with:
• Basic concepts in metallurgy
• Overview of failure analysis and the techniques of diagnosing failure modes and damage mechanisms
• Understanding of general damage mechanisms for all industries
• Understanding of damage mechanisms in refining/petrochemical industries (for 3rd day course). Integration of theoretical and practical knowledge through case studies.
• Ability to recognize and evaluate different failure/damage mechanisms and their implications on service life.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The course is designed for Engineers (AEs, CPs, etc), Inspectors, Consultants, Adjusters, Maintenance and Plant Operators, and Safety and Quality Assurance Personnel. It is essential for those whose work involve safety, inspection, maintenance, trouble-shooting, plant operations and prevention of failures.
