A comprehensive examination of performing condition and life assessments for gas turbines aimed at improving gas turbine operational and maintenance practices, minimising the likelihood of failures, prolonging asset life and reducing maintenance costs.

Key Learning Outcomes

Develop a detailed knowledge on material systems employed in gas turbines    Understand degradation mechanisms and how to predict them    Determine optimal linkages between condition assessments, including mechanical and NDT, fracture mechanics and stress analysis using simulation    Examine recent advances in the ability to model the creep and fatigue behaviour of advanced turbine materials    Systematic and practical management of gas turbine components    Examine and evaluate various tools required to produced technically proficient tenders for repair or replacement of high value components    Risk management mechanisms in relation to repair and maintenance    Key competencies for management decision making on overhaul scheduling and condition assessment techniques

About the Course

Assessment of the condition and remnant useful life of a number of gas turbine components is a key factor in achieving safe and economical operation of industrial gas-fired plant.

The durability and need to overhaul and replace parts such as blades and strators, combustor liners and transition ducts, as well as manage the safe usage of fracture critical rotating parts, such as discs and shafts plays an important role in determining the frequency and scope of maintenance intervals, the occurrence of forced outages and the total lifetimes achieved.

These factors determine the Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM) of simple cycle and combined cycle turbines and contribute significantly towards through life plant operating costs.

Market Research

The International Affairs Institute (IAI) and OCP Policy Center recently launched a new book: The Future of Natural Gas. Markets and Geopolitics.


The book is an in-depth analysis of some of the fastest moving gas markets, attempting to define the trends of a resource that will have a decisive role in shaping the global economy and modelling the geopolitical dynamics in the next decades.

Some of the top scholars in the energy sector have contributed to this volume such as Gonzalo Escribano, Director Energy and Climate Change Programme, Elcano Royal Institute, Madrid, Coby van der Linde, Director Clingendael International Energy Programme, The Hague and Houda Ben Jannet Allal, General Director Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie (OME), Paris.
