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. Cranfield University is world-leading in offshore inspection reliability and defect assessment.
On successful completion of this short course you will:
- Be able to assess the quality of inspection using different methods and select the most appropriate one for different applications.
- Utilise inspection outcomes to evaluate damage in offshore structures.
- Inspection reliability
- Structural Health and Condition Monitoring
- Risk-based inspection
- Defect sizing, Thickness measurement
- Damage Assessment
- Internal and external pipeline inspection
- Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring and Risk-based Inspection
- Workshop on Engineering Criticality Assessment
Who should attend?
This 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.
