Bill Amend will present, “What Do The Test Results (From the Manufacturer Test Reports or Your Lab) Mean for Your Pipeline?

Course Description

This two-hour webinar is intended to benefit staff responsible for validating conformance to material specification, whether they be technical staff, receiving department staff or procurement staff.  In addition, this webinar will benefit anyone who needs a better understanding of how “standard” tests of steel can result in unexpected or inconsistent results.

You will learn:

What key information is included in, and how to interpret manufacturer test reports (MTRs);

How results of common pipeline steel tests (tensile tests, toughness tests, chemical analysis) performed by third-party or in-house labs should be interpreted;

How test results can be influenced by testing procedures;

How results can be misapplied

Examples include:

1. How the size of Charpy test specimens influence the reported energy and estimated transition temperature;

2. How and to what extent tensile test results can be influenced by variations in the test procedure and specimen type, while still meeting API specifications;

3. The challenges in comparing results of third-party labs to results reported by manufacturers when confirming conformance to specifications

Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion awarding 2 PDHs.
