For students studying MSc Subsea Engineering. The aim is to provide knowledge of materials engineering & selection, and failure & 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 & testing/acceptance regimes
Degradation processes – corrosion, erosion, stress corrosion
Failure processes – fracture & fatigue
Integrity management procedures
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
This course provides a detailed understanding of design considerations for components to be used in subsea environments, especially in terms of materials selection, qualification, standards and testing. Reasons for failure and the application of failure analysis in design will be studied.
For students studying for MSc Subsea Engineering EG50F8 is the code for the on campus version of the course.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
80% examination and 20% continuous assessment.
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.)
There are no assessments for this course.
