Inspection and Structural Health Monitoring are fundamental to maintaining fitness-for-service of offshore Oil & Gas and Renewable Energy structures, particularly as these age. This series of short courses is aimed at developing an appreciation of inspection and monitoring techniques so that Engineers can better understand how to plan inspections and also how to interpret results
On successful completion of this short course you will:
- Understand the concepts and fundamentals of offshore inspection methods and systems.
- Demonstrate the capabilities and limitations of each inspection method.
- Be familiar with relevant international standards.
- Outlining the basic context and highlighting why inspection is crucial
- Fundamentals of offshore inspection methods and systems
- NDT techniques for the offshore industry
- Introduction to Underwater Inspection
- Standards for offshore inspection
- Electro-Magnetic Methods: ACPD and ACFM.
- Ultrasonic Testing: A-scan, B-scan, and C-scan.
- Magnetic Particle Inspection
- Dye Penetrant
Who should attend?
The five-day course is offered in full or in parts to satisfy the different requirements of engineers and practitioners. The first three days of the course aims to cover the fundamentals and practical elements of offshore inspection and monitoring, while the remaining two days address advanced aspects of offshore inspection and evaluation. The course will benefit mechanical, structural, pipeline, industrial engineers who are or plan to be involved in inspection of offshore structures and components.
This course is delivered through a balanced combination of lectures and practical sessions. Equipped laboratories to high standard will allow candidates to obtain hands-on experience of the application of different inspection methods. All delegates will receive a Certificate of Attendance upon completion of this course.
