Description

Course Description:

   This Fitness-For-Service training course will provide attendees with an introduction to API 579-1/ASME FFS-1. This training course covers all of the sections of API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 with a focus on the Level 1 and Level 2 assessment procedures. This course provides a discussion on damage mechanisms and the importance of identification, inspection techniques for flaw characterization, and an overview of remaining life, remediation, and methods to extend the life of damaged equipment.

   

   The instructors will discuss the background and logic behind the assessment procedures, guide the students through select examples from the API 579- 2/ASME FFS-2 Example Problem Manual, and discuss the procedures and solutions in detail. Typical problems solved include brittle fracture, general and local metal loss, pitting, blisters/HIC, weld misalignment, crack-like flaws, and creep.

 


Course Objectives:

    The attendees of the course will be able to

             • Perform and document level 1 and level 2 FFS assessment for brittle fracture, general

                metal loss, local metal loss, pitting, weld misalignment and shell distortions,

                crack like flaws.

             • Understand and review level 3 FFS analyses/reports

             • Apply and review simple BS 7910 and R6 analyses

             • Make decision for repair, replace, and re-rate equipment

 


Who Should Attend?

    This course is intended for engineers and engineering management engaged in the operation, design, analysis, and maintenance of plant facilities.  The participant should have at least a BS degree or equivalent experience in engineering. A general knowledge of stress analysis, materials behavior, and fracture mechanics are helpful.


    The FFS course is designed for plant inspectors and engineers, NDT engineers, material and corrosion engineers who are responsible for managing the integrity of refinery and process plant equipment. For example, pressure vessels, piping, storage tanks, heat exchanger, boilers and pipelines, either directly involved in FFS assessment or indirectly involved such review of FFS work and data gathering for level 3 FFS.
