The course will cover welding processes (GTAW, SMAW, MIG, FCAW, SAW, OAW), welding consumables, design of welded joints, applied welding metallurgy and heat treating, welding quality control, non-destructive testing and major International Welding Codes and Standards such as AWS and API.
Each session will be conducted in a lecture/discussion format and videos designed to provide intensive instruction and guidance. The director will be available following each day’s session to provide participants with further opportunity for discussion and consideration of specific problems.
The course includes detailed discussions about welding of pipelines and related facilities in accordance with API 1104, AWS D1.1, ASME IX and API 577 codes and standards..
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
Apply and gain an in-depth knowledge on welding technology including welding, fabrication and inspection in accordance with AWS, ASME and API codes and standards.
Differentiate the various welding process such as SMAW, GTAW, GMAW, FCAW and OAW.
Identify the arc welding consumables including welding wires, coated electrodes, sub arc wires and fluxes, neutral and active fluxes and shielding gases
Describe the properties and strength of materials and carryout destructive testing
Analyse the fatigue of welded structures, joint design as well as dissimilar welds and weld overlays.
Characterize the metallurgical properties of steel and heat treatment and implement welding quality control
