Remaining Life Analysis


    This course introduces Remaining Life and Reassessment Intervals as it relates to corrosion and crack management as well as methods for assessing the integrity of the pipeline with cracks and corrosion like defects. This course will illustrate the analyses of pipeline with population of defects found and the time these defect could potentially grow to failure and provide example approaches for how to analyze corrosion growth rate data to respond to defects will be presented. At the end, the course will provide a basic guide to crack and corrosion like defect assessment and the remaining life evaluation of the pipelines with the identified defects.

    Course Cost: $595

    For over 25 years, Applus+ Engineering staff have presented fundamental and accepted strategies for maintaining safe pipelines. We are pleased to announce the development of a structured series of online courses to provide training on fundamental pipeline integrity concepts and methods. The material in these courses provide the fundamental concepts of the effects of defects and imperfections on pipelines as well as methods for preventing, assessing, and mitigating them. The intended audience are pipeline company engineers e new or have only a few years of experience in integrity management. An introduction to pipeline defects, cathodic protection, defect assessment, in-line inspection, pipeline repair and hydrostatic testing are some of the topics presented in this workshop. More in-depth programs on these topics will available in future workshops. Sessions can be taken individually; however, registering for all sessions provides a price reduction and the benefit of having comprehensive pipeline integrity training.
