(Now available online: Flexible Hours)

The course broadly covers the following topics.

       Material of Construction and Corrosion
  • Brief review of metallurgy, review of engineering properties, stress-strain diagrams
  • Factors governing choice of materials, criteria for material selection for process equipment commonly used carbon steels / stainless steels /alloy steels (ASME Section II A/B)
  • Choice of materials for low temperatures / high temperatures, corrosive service, NACE materials, gasket materials, non metallic material, etc.
  • Painting and coating for corrosion protection, surface preparation, pickling & passivation
       Design of Pressure Vessels (ASME Section VIII Division 1)
  • Design principles from strength of materials, code philosophy understanding requirements of codes
