Fitness-For-Service (FFS) assessments are quantitative engineering evaluations that are performed to demonstrate the structural integrity of an in-service component that may contain a flaw or damage. This training course is designed to give a detailed discussion of the subject of Fitness For Service concepts (FFS) with emphasis on the basic degradation mechanism and its consequences aspect.

It presents a thorough understanding of how the disciplines of material science, stress analysis, NDT and inspection practices can be applied for assessing the present structural integrity of the component, and deciding its fitness for continued service as well as the projected remaining life. This course covers the analytical methods and their applications are explained with numerous case studies. In order to suit the course to participants with or without a FFS background, the course will be delivered such a way that most of technical terms and both code statements and examples will clarify concepts.

Each attendee must bring a Scientific Calculator

Mechanical Engineer

Biography


Mandar Mulay has about 20 years hands on experience in design and integrity assessment of Piping Systems, Reactors & Storage Tanks, Pressure Vessels, Power Boiler, and Heat Exchanger. He is well conversant with the major industry codes & standards such as ASME Sec. I, ASME B 31.1, B31.3 , B31.4 and B31.8, ASME Sec VIII, BS-5500, TEMA, API -650, IS 803, API 579, ASME PCC-2 etc.

Major projects closely associated with, in his professional career so far are, Qatar Chemicals, Shell, Castrol India, Reliance Industries, Cargill Foods USA, etc. His proficiency in Power Boiler, Piping and Pressure Vessel Codes enables him to trace the similarities and differences of these codes. He also actively involved as Instructor for programs on the subjects of ASME codes, Integrity Assessment, Fitness for Service, etc.

Along with his career in Engineering and Design Department in a multinational company at a very senior post for the last 20 years, he is also visiting faculty to a well known Engineering College in India for their P.G. Courses in Piping Design and Engineering

Apart from being visiting faculty, He has also conducted several Training Courses ( ASME Sec. I, ASME Sec. VIII, ASME B 31.3 Piping Codes , API 579 FFS code, ASME PCC-2 Repair practices, and Heat Exchanger Design Operations & Maintenance ) in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and UAE for engineers from companies like Saudi Aramco, SABIC group of Companies, Qatar Petroleum, ADNOC, BAPCO, DEWA, Gulf Petrochemicals etc. He has already conducted many times the training courses in API 579, where the participants rated him “Excellent” for these courses.
