In this course, you will discover the underlying principles, concepts, technical parameters, and methods for assessing defects, such as cracks in high-pressure pipelines and associated components under static and cyclic loading, including the determination of appropriate loading and material properties.
On completion of the course, you will be able to explain the history of fracture mechanics, its principles, and differing models. You will also be able to characterize the best assessment methods using fracture mechanics and defi ne and distinguish between the traditional approach of fatigue assessment and the fracture mechanics approach to fatigue assessment.
