What You Will Learn:
Mechanical degradation mechanisms
Selecting an appropriate FFS technique
Conduct a level 1 and level 2 FFS
Learn - We will present the basic API 579-1 (ASME FFS-1) theory that will provide context and a solid foundation.
Practice - We will go through examples together where we apply the Fitness For Service (FFS) theory in various contexts.
Apply - You will be given an opportunity to apply the theory and lessons learned from examples to complete the two class projects which will then be evaluated by the course leader.
