Piping and mechanical engineers are regularly involved with metallic piping and pressure vessels. Typically the material selection is as defined by the material specialist in the design specification. The engineer is entitled to ask though, why this material selection? is this material susceptible to corrosion or fatigue? how should the integrity of the material be managed?

This training course aims to give engineers an appreciation of different types of metallic materials, for example what are the differences in micro-structure, what is the effect of heat treatment, and why is a certain metal susceptible to a specific failure mechanism. With the key outcome being piping and mechanical engineers who can pose the correct questions related to material selection and have the awareness to act proactively should they identify a risk.

During this course participants will learn about the decisions that are taken in material selection, from material properties and which design codes define the material composition, to how does the material selection play a key role in reducing the risk of failures due to corrosion and vibration. Cases are included to explain examples of typical in-service failures, followed by an overview of the principles of quality assurance, quality control and integrity management as applied to materials.

The course consists of 12hrs of online live sessions with the instructor. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge.

 






Upon Registration Deadline we will contact you to arrange course dates and payment.

Level: Beginner to Intermediate



This course consists of 12hr of instructor-led live sessions which consist of presentations, demonstrations, discussions and worked cases. During each session, participants can ask questions to the instructor (through the chat or microphone) which will be answered in the session.  

Access to the course
After signing up for the course, EngineeringTrainer will be in touch shortly after the Registration Deadline to agree a training schedule that is possible for the participants and instructor. Payment will also be arranged at this stage after the Registration Deadline.

Once the training schedule is agreed, you will find the course welcome chapter and instructions on how to join the live sessions in your EngineeringTrainer portal. 

Sessions are held using the software Microsoft Teams and a log-in link is provided for each session through the EngineeringTrainer portal. Live sessions can be joined using any device, including tablets and mobiles.

There is a Registration procedure for this training course. Please click on the register button above to register.

Shortly after the Registration Deadline has passed EngineeringTrainer will be in touch to agree a training schedule which is possible for you, typically within 2 months of the Registration Deadline.

No payment is required until after the Registration Deadline. Payment will be arranged together with the schedule after the Registration Deadline.

Typically the course will be split across 4 sessions, an example is shown below, the final dates and schedule of the training course will be determined together with the instructor and the participants after the Registration Deadline :

    • Session 1     3hr

    • Session 2     3hr

    • Session 3     3hr

    • Session 4     3hr 


  • These sessions will include breaks at regular intervals
