Fitness for Service Assessment

2-Day Training Course: Maintain & Prolong the Life of Your Pressurised Plant & Equipment. This course will help engineers develop a complete method for analysing, evaluating and monitoring the operation, design & maintenance of pressurised equipment. Learn how to apply the Fitness-For-Service standard API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 2017 through the understanding of material behaviour, non-destructive testing and importance of operating condition.

overview

Key Learning Objectives

  • Review the sections of API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 2017 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
  • Discuss 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 2017
  • Understand the relationship between API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 2017 and other FFS standards
  • Appreciate the 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 asis, 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.

Who Will Benefit

This is a technical course. It will benefit engineers and engineering management engaged in the operation, design, analysis, and maintenance of pressurised plant or equipment in industry. Job titles include: plant, mechanical, civil, structural, reliability and project engineers. Metallurgists and maintenance employees who design or operate pressurised plant or equipment that may develop cracks in service or at the time of manufacture will also benefit.

Course Outline

This course examines step by step and in detail the contents of the API/ASME standard. The sessions are not necessarily equal in length. The main focus will be on some of the more commonly used sections in API579.

The level of detail examined will be dependent of the requirements and experience of the participants.

Most case studies examined throughout the course will be pre-worked to improve productivity and maximise learning transfer through group discussion. However, there will be opportunities for participants to work through a number of limited problems individually and in group work.

Participants are encouraged to bring specific problems of interest to them to discuss during the course, to assist with problem solving and benchmarking against best practices and lessons learnt.
