THE 34th INTERNATIONAL
Pipeline Pigging & Integrity Management Conference™
plus Training Courses and Exhibition
George R. Brown Convention Center and the Marriott Marquis Hotel
|January 31-February 1||February 2-4||February 1-3|
|7:30am||Registration & coffee|
New PHMSA regulations effective July 1, 2020 require that pipeline operators evaluate the failure pressure capacity of pipelines with cracks and long seam weld defects and perform fatigue crack growth analysis using Fracture Mechanics methods (§192.917 and §192.712).
Furthermore, regulations specify actions to take when there are no documented pipeline material fracture toughness data to use in the engineering analyses and new requirements for the explicit consideration of In-Line Inspection uncertainties in the assessment for cracks and long seam weld integrity (§195.416 and §195.452)
The course will present key material properties and engineering fracture mechanics principles that govern static and fatigue evaluations of planar flaws in pipelines and how to relate these principles to the new PHMSA requirements.
All participants will receive a detailed set of lecture notes in print as well as PDF, providing an invaluable reference document.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be eligible to receive 1.4 Continuing Education Units.
