Stress Engineering Services, October 5, 2021


This course will provide training in the fitness-for-service evaluation methods of the API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 (2016) Standard, including the many new additions and changes in the soon-to-be-released 2021. Attendees will learn the basic rules and principles for Level 1 and Level 2 assessments of damaged equipment.

This 2-day course will cover all of the sections of API 579, from Part 3 (Brittle Fracture) to the new Part 14 (Fatigue) and also review introductory materials in Parts 1 and 2.
