Structural Integrity & Component Life Assessment (SICLA) Course 2019
July 3 -8:00 am - July 5 -5:00 pm£850
This well established course incorporates the most recent advances in the subject of fracture and damage based structural integrity for high temperature component lifetime assessment under static and cyclic loading conditions. It aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the latest procedures for assessing safety of cracked and un-cracked components so that criteria for their safe use can be specified using damage and fracture mechanics concepts. The methodologies described are established in EU and Internationally. Reference will be made to International codes dealing with crack growth test procedures.
The lectures will include advice and examples on the use of A16, R5 / R6, BS7910, API/ASME, FITNET,
ASTM procedures for component defect assessment and testing methodologies. The course is relevant to
the chemical, aerospace, nuclear and conventional power industries.
Topics to be addressed in this course include:
- Mechanisms of fracture, creep
- NDE and NDT app
- Damage mechanics concepts
- Metallurgical aspects of lifing
- Fracture mechanics K, J, C*
- Corrosion/oxidation mechanics
- Treatment of residual stress
- Testing and analysis
- Models of crack initiation/growth
- Industrial lifing– parent/weld
- Thermo-mechanical fatigue
- Creep-Fatigue interaction
- Component Lifing predictions
- Probabilistic methods
- Codes – BS7910, R5/R6, API, A16
The course is suitable for engineers, managers, materials scientists and technical personnel, with a degree or equivalent, involved in the aerospace, chemical, electrical and the power industry.
