TWI’s Structural Integrity/BS 7910 Course Goes Online!

Our structural integrity assessment and BS 7910 procedures course is being made available online for the first time.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on students being able to attend our training centres in person, TWI is holding a Zoom version of the popular ‘Structural Integrity Assessment and Practical Application of BS 7910 Procedures for the Assessment of Flaws in Metallic Structures’ course.

Responding to customer needs, we are working to ensure that you can continue pursuing your career and workplace goals by gaining the skills and experience you require.

Previous attendees have been from various backgrounds, including structural engineers and materials scientists, representing Member and non-member companies of TWI, as well as postgraduate researchers.

This course includes:

  • The concepts of fitness-for-purpose and engineering critical assessment (ECA), using lectures, informal discussion, quizzes, videos and software exercises
  • The practical applications of fracture mechanics, covering brittle and ductile fracture, plastic collapse, fatigue crack growth and stress corrosion cracking
  • Fracture and fatigue procedures in BS 7910, with an emphasis on how they are applied to welded structures
  • The assessment of circumferential flaws in pipeline girth welds
  • A range of relevant subjects related to BS 7910, e.g. failure case studies, non-destructive testing (inspection), materials properties, fracture toughness testing
  • Practical training in fracture and fatigue assessments using CrackWISE software
  • A firm foundation in the application of BS 7910 to the assessment of flaws using fitness-for-purpose methods

The first online course will be run over Zoom from 24 February to 3 March 2021 (weekday mornings only). For further details please check out our website.
