PVP Failure Mode Case Study Series led by PVP Code Experts

From August 9-11, 2017, ASME will host a series of case study workshops addressing the fundamentals of damage mechanisms, their causes and characteristics, methods of inspection to detect the extent of damage, and the methods and criteria to evaluate the component's fitness-for-service.

This program is an essential resource for engineers, inspectors, and regulators who desire a practical roadmap for making run-or-repair and operability decisions based on the sound application of ASME and API standards, industry regulations, and engineering practice. Participants can elect to attend any number of workshops or attend all seven over two and a half days.
