Webinars provide an opportunity to learn about relevant industry topics from E2G subject matter experts. We strive to share knowledge based on the experience gained by continually working on industry committees, consulting activities, through the development and enhancement of products and services.
The most recent webinar topics are listed below. For a full listing of available webinars visit the Library page on this site.
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
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.
Engineering Best Practices Presented by Shane E. MacArthur and Jeannie A. Lewis
The Equity Engineering Practices® (EEPs) are a system of detailed and customizable Best Practices used to identify RAGAGEP (Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices) and additional corporate requirements to ensure compliance, promote safety, and improve reliability.The collection of 700+ engineering standards and 250+ piping classes, used by 150 facilities in 13 countries around the world, are delivered through an Operational Excellence platform with integrated tools to support use.
Introducing SIMFLEX-III Presented by Robert C. Davis, P.E.
E2G Subject Matter Expert, Robert C. Davis, P.E. will demonstrate SIMFLEX-III’s workflow, ease of use, and highlighting features that enhance and support the user’s experience.
Intellijoint Presented by Robert C. Davis, P.E. and James V. Leta
Joint leakage is an expensive problem, but it need not be accepted as part of plant operations and the cost of doing business. E2G has used the IntelliJoint software for years to provide consulting support to our clients to help eliminate leaks, optimize bolting procedures, and support gasket selection to improve bolted flange integrity at their facilities.
New Fatigue Screening Criteria for The Fitness-For-Service Assessment of Process Piping Vibrations Presented by Michael F.P. Bifano, Ph.D., P.E.
Currently used piping vibration screening limits are typically justified by experience and lack a well-documented technical basis. This webinar presents the technical background for the future Level 1 Fitness-for-Service (FFS) vibration screening criteria slated for ballot in the 2019 Edition of API 579.
Evaluation of Large Above Ground Storage Tanks Subject to Seismic Loading Presented by Seetha Rammudu Kummari, P.E. & Phillip E. Prueter, P.E.
Evaluating the behavior of large aboveground storage tanks during an earthquake is complex. Foundation-structure and fluid-structure interaction effects can influence the overall tank behavior and likely failure modes. Furthermore, foundation settlement and subsequent shell distortion can diminish the damage tolerance of in-service tanks. Local stresses at anchor bolt support chair attachments and the shell-to-floor junction can be difficult to quantify without detailed analysis. Additionally, performing explicit dynamic analysis with liquid sloshing effects can be time consuming, expensive, and even impractical.
