EG50F8: SUBSEA INTEGRITY (2016-2017)

Last modified: 16 Nov 2016 17:59


Course Overview

This course is for students studying MSc Subsea Engineering. The aim is to provide knowledge of materials engineering and selection, and failure and degradation issues in a subsea environment, including life cycle analysis; to provide knowledge for understanding and applying the relevant design standards and selection guidelines; and to provide a detailed understanding related to fault finding and integrity management. Fundamental studies are combined with industry applications.

 

·         Principles of materials selection

·         Materials and component qualification: design standards and testing/acceptance regimes

·         Degradation processes – corrosion, erosion, stress corrosion

·         Failure processes – fracture and fatigue

·         Inspection techniques

·         Integrity management procedures
