Using Fitness-For-Service Methods in API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 to Evaluate Damaged Components in the Creep Regime Presented by Phillip E. Prueter, P.E.
This webinar provides overviews of Part 10, Assessment of Components Operating in the Creep Range, and API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, Fitness-For-Service(API 579); as well as discussing background information on the Materials Properties Council (MPC) Omega Creep Method. In API 579, assessment procedures for estimating equipment remaining life in the creep regime are provided for components with and without a crack-like flaw, subject to steady-state and/or cyclic operating conditions. In general, the accuracy in any creep assessment procedure is highly dependent on the ability to define the stress and temperature history (including start-up, upset, and shutdown conditions) for both past and future operation; however, Omega creep testing can be performed to supplement remaining life calculations for cases where operating histories are unknown. This webinar summarizes the Levels 1, 2, and 3 FFS assessment procedures for estimating creep damage and remaining life in accordance with API 579.

An Overview of the Proposed Updates to the 2020 Edition of API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, Fitness-For-Service Presented by Phillip E. Prueter, P.E.
This webinar is intended to summarize the approved and proposed updates to the 2020 Edition of API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, Fitness-For-Service (API 579), as well as ongoing development work relating to new technology. Additionally, an overview of the framework for proposed Part 15 guidance for piping vibration screening is provided. Lastly, a summary of the proposed Part 16 for evaluating high temperature hydrogen attack (HTHA) is offered. The technical justification supporting these proposed updates will be briefly discussed.
Acoustic Induced Vibration Presented by Michael F.P. Bifano, Ph.D., P.E.
Acoustic induced vibration (AIV) is the result of resonant vibration in the fluid column of piping systems. It is analogous to what occurs when air is blown over the opening of an empty bottle. Using case studies, this webinar describes where AIV can occur, its typical sources, characteristics of AIV that make it easily identifiable, the risks of AIV, and mitigation strategies for its prevention.
E2G API RBI Automated Damage Screening Technology Unveiled Presented by James G. Mekker
This webinar covers that API 571 damage mechanisms serve as the basis for the solver that has been part of the damage plus product to automate the damage mechanism screening. The new automated damage screening technology available in PlantManager utilizes the same Solver functionality along with E2G M&C expert opinion to determine damage severities required to complete an RBI assessment.
Leveraging Fitness-For-Service and Inspection Techniques to Manage the Risks Associated with High-Temperature Hydrogen Attack Presented by Phillip E. Prueter, P.E.
High-temperature hydrogen attack (HTHA) is a damage mechanism that can detrimentally affect the service life of carbon steel and low-chrome pressure equipment in the petroleum refining and related industries. This webinar summarizes a case study of a detailed analytical evaluation of potential HTHA damage in a vintage C-0.5Mo hydrotreater reactor.
