Piping and Pipeline Engineering: Design, Construction, Maintenance, Integrity, and Repair describes the fundamental steps to any successful piping and pipeline engineering project, whether it’s routine maintenance or a multi-million dollar project new. Explores the understanding of the qualitative details, calculations, and techniques are essential in supporting competent decisions. He pairs coverage of real-world practice with the technical principles that underlie the material, design, construction, inspection, testing, and maintenance.

Participants will understand the seven principles that will help establish a balance between production, cost, security and integrity of piping and piping systems.

Through this course participants learn about the coverage of codes and standards, design analysis, welding and inspection, corrosion mechanisms, fitness-for-service and failure analysis, and an overview of valve selection and application. It features the technical basis of piping and pipeline code design rules for normal operating conditions and occasional loads and addresses the basic principles of materials, design, fabrication, testing and corrosion, and its effect on the integrity of the system.

  1. The Participant will gain an in-depth knowledge of pipe and fitting material specifications, manufacturing, fabrication process and their influence on mechanical properties of strength and toughness, to help in material selection and failure analysis
  2. Understand the technical background to the design formulas, and their application to the design of piping systems and pipelines. The course addresses rules of good practice in layout of piping systems for reliable operation
  3. Practical understanding of piping and pipeline mode of failure, corrosion mechanisms, how to recognize them, classify them and resolve them
  4. The participant will learn risk assessment for piping & pipeline i.e. probability of failure and their consequences if failures occur
  5. The participant will be introduced to the latest techniques and research in piping and pipeline integrity to analyze a degraded condition due to either corrosion or mechanical damage.
