This workshop provides an in-depth overview of high pH and near neutral pH stress corrosion cracking (SCC). Topics covered include history and characteristics of SCC, causative and non-causative factors related to SCC, coating effects, SCC direct assessment, susceptibility assessments/site selection, field inspection protocols, mitigation, and the CEPA guidelines.
- Pipeline Coatings
- Stress and Strain
- SCC DA
- Site Selection
- Field Inspection Protocol
At the end of this course you should be able to:
- Recognize the three factors necessary for SCC to occur on transmission pipelines
- Be aware of the difference between high pH SCC and near neutral pH SCC
- Understand the role coatings play
- Identify sources of stress that can lead to SCC and understand importance of cyclic stresses on initiation and growth of SCC
- Be familiar with the steps involved in SCC direct assessment programs
- Be aware of mitigation methods for SCC
Course Fees (In USD):
ASME Member $850
Non-ASME Member $950
(Fees include Professional Course Guide, Breakfast and Lunch)
This course is intended for engineers interesting in learning more about SCC and about conducting SCC integrity assessments. Prerequisites are 2 to 4 years of experience related to pipeline integrity management and/or involvement in SCC direct assessment programs. Some prior exposure to high pH or near neutral pH SCC is desired.
