Knowing the fundamentals of industry programs, codes and standards, and technology will prepare new engineers for long-term success. At E2G, we have developed a new training course that supports knowledge transfer between industry experts and junior engineers, plus fills the gap for those companies without a formal training program. This article expands upon the June 16th webinar in which Mark Harmody introduced the curriculum for the Fundamentals of Asset Lifecycle Management course (FALCM).

With baby boomers making up the largest portion of today’s workforce, it’s time to implement a corporate knowledge-sharing program. E2G has developed a training program for our engineers and clients that is devoted to mechanical integrity programs and centered around our life-cycle management philosophy. In this article, Mark Harmody discusses the curriculum and how we apply the program at E2G.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the upcoming API Inspection and Mechanical Integrity Summit in San Antonio! Our team is hosting eight training courses covering topics related to fitness-for-service (FFS), suitability-for-service (SFS), aboveground storage tanks (ASTs), brittle fracture, piping vibration, and pressure relief devices (PRDs).

The recent changes made to ASCE 7 will have a trickle-down impact on API and ASME codes, plus the International Building Code (IBC). In this article, Derek Slovenec and Joel Andreani discuss the most significant load changes (seismic, wind, tornado, snow, and rain) and the potential impact on ASME and API standards that reference ASCE 7.
Fitness-for-Service (FFS) is a recognized industry practice for assessing equipment mechanical integrity when unanticipated damage is found and can often be used to extend service life while minimizing downtime and avoiding costly repairs. In this article, Katelyn Gustoff and Joel Andreani examine the applicability of using API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 (API 579) FFS and API 653 assessment standards with in-service ASTs.
