The course utilises a mixture of lectures and workshops to introduce metallurgical theory, metal properties and testing techniques, corrosion, metal failure and preventative actions. Specific studies will be carried out on component failure in the oil industry. Additionally alloy systems used in the oil industry will be examined in greater depth. Reference will be made to specifications used in the oil industry.
Course Structure: 8 modules of max. 2 hours each, delivered over 4 days Each day will consist of 2 modules of 2 hours, with sufficient breaks.
Course Level: Foundation Duration: 4 days Instructor: Phil Harrison
