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.
