Short description

This module is devoted to the advanced issues of RBI analysis and, in particular, to the analysis of consequences of failure as defined by API RP 581:2008 Risk-Based Inspection Technology. It starts with general definitions aiming to ensure better understanding of the main topics of the module. The methodology for calculation is always illustrated with examples. The second part looks at the document CWA (CEN Workshop Agreement) 15740:2008, Risk-Based Inspection and Maintenance Procedures for European Industry (RIMAP). It explains the reasons to develop the European procedure and its differences and advantages in comparison to API RBI methodology. The focus of the last part of the module is on the damage mechanisms appearing in different industries and their influence to the calculation of probability of failure of equipment. A large number of elaborated examples are included.

Objectives


3.1 Knowledge
At the end of the first part of the module students are expected to have basic knowledge about:

  • what are types of consequences and what kind of consequences can be calculated using RBI methodology
  • what is the scope of this calculation, models and required data for calculation
  • applicability, advantages and constrains of Level 1 and Level 2 calculation of consequences
  • steps in calculation of consequences of failure at Level 1 and 2, as defined by API 581, including premises and assumptions
At the end of the second part of the module students are expected to have basic knowledge about:
  • main principles of the RBI
  • Damage Factors used in RBI PoF Analysis

3.2 Skills

Through numerous examples and use of different tools student will acquire skills needed for practical and independent analysis of RBI related problems in industry.

3.3 Competences

The competences obtained in the module wil prepare one for passing the certification exams in particular areas of API and RIMAP (CWA) based analysis, in those countries where such a certification is needed and/or recognized.
