Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 11-12 June 2013.
This course will give a fresh and practical input in the way naval architects and engineers can use weld improvement methods to safeguard the structural integrity and extend the fatigue life of offshore installations without the use of hot-work.
By implementing the three pillar of the life extension concept, participants will see how Fatigue Assessment, Inspection and Weld Improvement Methods can be combined to enable new possibilities in life extension projects.
Participants will be shown five different life extension projects where weld improvement methods were used to successfully extend the fatigue life of offshore installations.
The course participants will gain understanding in the benefit and drawbacks of the following weld improvement methods; Ultrasonic Peening, Hammer Peening, Burr Grinding and TIG Dressing. Of these methods the most focus will be put on Ultrasonic Peening
Bilderberg Park Hotel Rotterdam
Rotterdam, The Netherlands 29, 30 & 31 January 2013
The course will use a number of «recent life extension» core case studies and related exercises, drawing on the extensive global experience of the Course Director’s 30 years of experience in material fatigue and as a pioneer in the field of structural life extension of offshore installations. These case studies and exercises are designed to involve participants in an interactive manner and stimulate discussion of the key issues, including sharing of experiences amongst the participants. The case studies and exercises will be supplemented by power point presentations illustrating key data/principles and providing participants with additional examples. Participants will receive copies of all presentation material, including case studies. and toolkit used during the course in both hard and soft copy forms for future reference.
MWB Exchange Cavendish Square
26 & 27 June 2012, London United Kingdom
This course will give a fresh and practical input to the way engineers go about solving structural fatigue issues on floating offshore installations to extend the fatigue life. Participants will learn how to accurately assess their vessels’ current situations and how to produce a qualified action plan in order to achieve the required life extension. The course participants will gain understanding in which steps to take when tackling structural fatigue problems and learn how to accurately safeguard the structural integrity of their installations through a proactive risk based approach model as used by the forerunners of the industry today. Participants will learn what measures are most cost effective when assessing different methods of structural life extension.
