Failures of piping systems in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries can lead to damage of assets, personal injury and loss of life. Piping failure can be caused by excessive vibration, in the form of high levels of acoustic energy (AIV), or by flow turbulence (FIV) created by shear forces within the piping system.


A desire for increased ow rates, the use of ‘thin’ wall piping, the growing demand to reduce mass, the requirement for fast activating valves and use of longer piping has led to a rise in the number of potential piping failures. Although the phenomenon of induced vibration has been understood since the 1950s (in the aerospace industry), it is only more recently that process and piping engineers have had to consider these impacts in the preliminary and detailed design phases of their projects.

 

As a leading provider of AIV and FIV assessment for the oil and gas industry WKC offer bespoke training in the assessment and evaluation of AIV and FIV training.

  • Acoustically-induced vibration - including description of relevant AIV methodologies and codes (EI, CONCAWE, Exxon, Eisinger).
  • Flow-induced vibration - using EI Guidelines.
  • Application of the assessment methodologies and mitigation measures used during the design phase of a project to minimize the risk of induced vibration.

  • Enable participants to be able to undertake an AIV an FIV assessment following good industry practice.
  • Allow participants to gain an understanding of the prediction, screening and assessment procedures.
  • Provide participants with an oversight of design measures that can be implemented in order to minimise the risk of induced vibration.
  • Provide worked examples of the application of the assessment methodologies during the design phase of a project.

The course is aimed at professionals who have involvement in the design of oil and gas assets, who want to gain a comprehensive understanding of how AIV and FIV assessments are carried out and gain some practical experience in undertaking such studies.

 

The course is primarily aimed at Project Managers, Process Engineers, and Mechanical Engineers.
