Corrosion, Cracks, Catastrophes. (Online)

CPD online

10 JulyJuly
Online

CPD 3 credits. CPD Ref. No. SAIChE-421 Provider: E4A (SAIChE-SPV-004)

Includes various sub-courses on Corrosion and Oxidation, Stress Corrosion Cracking, Permeation, Hydrogen Embrittlement, Cracks and Micro-cracks, Corrosion Barriers and Corrosion Allowances, Corrosion Charts, Fires and Explosions. 

This EXCITING and EXTENSIVE new Course covers an in-depth review of the 3 GREATEST RISKS in Engineering Design at a level beneficial to all engineering disciplines. The range of topics covered is immense and the course provides attendees with lots of basic principles and many design guidelines and checklists.              
This high-grade course enables engineers and scientists involved in design, projects and plant operations to assess the design requirements for addressing corrosion, crack avoidance and hazards risks at a first level of basic professional design assessment.
 
This Course focusses firstly on corrosion, sets out many aspects of the various corrosion types and mechanisms, and compares the way in which materials are selected for service in various corrosive environments. The use of variables analyses, special E4A analytical methods, and E4A selected corrosion charts, paves the way to the choice of materials for industry applications.             

The Course then sets out various crack types and mechanisms, and shows how materials are selected for service while limiting the crack prone services and thus the next level of material selection for service in industry. The Course especially addresses those aspects of risk that initiate cracks and crack propagation, as well as important critical variables such as stress corrosion cracking (SCC) and embrittlement, notably hydrogen embrittlement,   

The third main section of the Course addresses those areas of risk that are particularly hazardous in most industries with the main emphasis on fire and explosion hazards avoidance by design.  
The topics addressed are centered on the identification of critical variables in the total system analyses.    

The final summary is prepared as a series of DESIGN STAGES OR STEPS in the E4A master chart manner with control checklists and the appropriate design approaches. We include in the Course Interesting and unusual case studies and factual examples of materials selection and application.  

There is a full scope of reading material that extends the Course to enable the award of 3 CPD points and we will provide those details and discuss with attendees how these details can be addressed, at the time of your registration for the Course. The full live attendance remains at 2 days.

MAIN OBJECTIVES

The main objective is to provide engineers with the fundamentals of design and risk management of the 3 GREATEST RISKS subjects of the Course and to thereby limit risk of failure and avoid the excessive costs of failure and downtime stemming from failure. 
Economic benefits are achieved also with the materials cost savings in the designs concluded.

Engineering Report Writing, Presentations, Communication (Online)

CPD online

17 JulyJuly
Online

CPD 2 credits. CPD Ref. No. SAIChE-384 Provider: E4A (SAIChE-SPV-004)

Also called: Knowledge Management, Communication and Report Writing

Incl. sub-courses such as Technical Presentations, Audience and Message analyses, Wide range of Report samples, Technical Scoping & The 4th Industrial Revolution.
There is extensive time allocated to presentations directed at commercial success in engineering projects.

E4A addresses knowledge management with respect to current rapid change, complexity and the importance of current knowledge expansion. These topics are introduced as a lead-in to the key topics of communication and report writing. We address approaches to communication and technical report writing with an overview to important fundamentals such as audience analysis, needs statements, target markets, bias and vested interests, impacts on communication and matters such as attention markers or lead-ins to many communications and other report writing requirements. The course then presents analytical tools (system analyses, scope analyses, information analyses) to use in the importance of thorough background analysis for good professional technical reports. There is also analysis of how information can be better presented and the hazards of poor presentation especially in spreadsheets and graphical analyses.

Further course content covers types of reports, types of styles and matters of report content.

Important guidelines, rules and good practices for each of the communication and report modes are then presented and discussed. Attendees will also develop and enhance their presentations, reports and overall communication skills. The expectations of the coming 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) to control processes with Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, Advanced Instrumentation and BIG DATA analyses are then debated and the need to complete the 3rdIR.

MAIN OBJECTIVES

The main objective is to improve technical communication and writing skills of the attendees, thus providing enhanced communication of emails, and technical records and procedures. The course also sets out to provide a sound understanding of the nature of knowledge and information and the dominant role it plays in all communication in modern economies.

Economic benefits are achieved through reduction of errors and miscommunications in the workplace and thus improved control of processes and operations.

Attendee comments:
“The course enlightened me well on the small details that matter in communication”, Tebogo P.;
“A great course. I will especially use the tools for report writing of my technical reports”, Siphamandla B.

This information packed course enables those involved in design, projects and plant operations to assess the design requirements of various pipeline systems for a range of services from water to highly corrosive systems and judge the materials suitable for each application.  
The range of piping in industry is also considered from the perspective of a wide range of services, such as pressure piping, steam services and special installation design details – thus achieving more cost-efficient and effective complete engineering designs aligned with each process requirement.

The piping systems are also analysed through special systems, scoping, information and risk analytical methods. Each of the main materials types that can be applied in piping designs are addressed in turn. Steels, Stainless Steels and Exotic Steels, Thermoplastics and Thermosets (Fibreglass), and Steel Plastic-lined Piping are the main, but not only, materials groupings evaluated.     
Applicable standards are addressed for each material and the critical variables in total design are fully addressed. Pressure Piping is also addressed in a special sub-section. Hazardous Processes are discussed, and attendees are introduced to the relevant design standards for hazardous products.

The final summary is prepared as a series of DESIGN STAGES OR STEPS in a master chart with control checklists and the appropriate design limitations are discussed and finalized. Interesting and unusual case studies are also presented.

MAIN OBJECTIVES

A range of competencies are enhanced including use of engineering design and contextual judgement, developing knowledge and variable-based engineering problem-solving, and other key design practices. The main objective is to widen knowledge of the materials choices in design of piping and enable engineers to do the first level, or basic design of piping before procuring the final detailed design from professional specialist piping engineers.              
Economic benefits are achieved through the evaluation of different materials and assessing the most effective materials for the given process variables, service needs and potential hazards.
