EG55P8: PROCESS DESIGN, LAYOUT & MATERIALS (2016-2017)

Last modified: 16 Nov 2016 18:09


Course Overview

Candidates will develop PIDs for major systems applying LOPA and including instrumentation. Inherently safe equipment layout principles for both onshore and offshore applications are addressed.  Layouts will be developed for example applications.

The safety critical systems are reviewed and discussed.

Corrosion mechanisms are addressed together with materials for construction properties.  Basic corrosion models are presented for a wide range of fluids.  The operational modes which present most demand on materials are reviewed.  Corrosion in erosive environments is addressed.  Effects of temperature deviations in fire & blowdown are illustrated and analysed.  Case studies are used to illustrate common issues.

Teaching Breakdown


Assessment

1st Attempt: 3-hour written examination (80%); continuous assessment (20%)

Resit: The re-sit will comprise of re-doing the failed element/s (exam and/or coursework assessment/s) from the 1st attempt with a maximum CGS mark of D3. The marks for other elements (successfully passed) will be carried over. Resit mark of either RP or RF will be recorded.

Formative Assessment

None.

Feedback

Feedback is given in the form of discussion with course tutors in contact sessions and on VLE and return of continually assessed work.
