EG50F8: SUBSEA INTEGRITY (2020-2021)

Last modified: 24 Jun 2020 14:31


Course Overview

For students studying MSc Subsea Engineering. The aim is to provide knowledge of materials engineering & 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 & component qualification: design standards & testing/acceptance regimes

Degradation processes – corrosion, erosion, stress corrosion

Failure processes – fracture & fatigue

Inspection techniques

Integrity management procedures
