This one-day course reviews the characteristics of Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC), how to diagnose their causes, how to determine the integrity of the system or component, how to decide whether to keep the system or component in service, and how to repair and prevent recurrence.  Prediction of SCC onset and progression will be discussed in detail, as well as failure assessments and repair options.   

You will learn to:
 - Recognize the type and causes of Stress Corrosion Cracking
 - Apply the correct NDE technique to characterize the corrosion
 - Estimate the corrosion rate
 - Evaluate the remaining life of the component based on API-579/ASME FFS-1 and ASME XI
 - Make run-or-repair decisions
 - Select the repair technique in accordance with ASME PCC-2, API-510 and 570, API-653 and Steel Tank Institute Standards

Who should attend:
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/API codes, industry regulations, and engineering practice.
