Welding & Cutting / Non-Destructive Testing By Alan Denney

Welding & Cutting / Non-Destructive Testing By Alan Denney

The second presentation of The Young Engineers Program (YEP) also at CB&I in London with an excellent presentation on the complexity of Welding & Cutting followed by Non-Destructive Testing. The program continues through the year with 9 modules including a Case Study which the delegates will complete with the help of mentors.

The discussion was all encompassing but dealt with the basics of;

  • The basics
  • The common arc welding processes

o   Manual welding with covered electrodes; SMAW (MMA)

o   Submerged arc welding; SAW

o   Gas shielded welding; GMAW, (MIG / MAG)

o   Flux-cord arc welding; FCAW, SS-FCAW

o   Gas shielded welding with non-consumed electrode; GTAW (TIG)

  • Choice of welding processes
  • Cutting

o   Oxy-fuel cutting

o   Air-arc gouging

The lecture continued Non-destructive testing where the scope was;

  • Magnetic Particle Inspection
  • Liquid Penetrant Inspection
  • Radiography
  • Manual Ultrasonic Testing
  • It did not cover visual inspection which is the most common inspection method

The group enjoyed a networking session after the meeting at a local Lebanese restaurant courtesy of The Institute of Corrosion.

The next YEP meeting will be Materials and Materials Selection to be presented by Sadegh Parvizi on Wednesday 21st March at CB&I in London.

We are extremely grateful to Alan Denney and Sadegh Parvizi at CB&I and all the other members of ICorr that give up their time freely to assist our Young Engineers with their career development

Corrosion Fundamentals By Dr Jane Lomas

The first presentation of The Young Engineers Program (YEP) also start at CB&I in London with an excellent presentation on the Basics of Corrosion by Jane Lomas. The event was opened by Bill hedges of BP and continues through the year with 9 modules including a Case Study which the delegates will present back at the London Branch meeting in November 2018.

 The discussion was all encompassing but dealt with the basics of corrosion from first principals;

  • Basic Principles
  • Anodic and Cathodic Areas
  • What Controls Corrosion rates
  • Corrosive Environments
  • Common Types of Corrosion
    • Pitting
    • Crevice attack
    • Galvanic corrosion
    • Stray current corrosion
    • Stress corrosion cracking
    • Microbially induced corrosion

Next YEP Programme

Following on from the successes of the previous YEPs, the next Young Engineer Programme will start in January 2018.

Lectures will cover, basic corrosion, welding, materials, coatings, painting, fire protection and linings, cathodic protection, chemical treatments, and will include presentation skills.   We are currently carrying out pre-enrolment for this programme, and are seeking engineers in the early stages of their career in the corrosion industry, and who are looking for extra experience to set them up for their future. 

If you are interested in this event please fill in the application form which can be obtained from Institute of Corrosion, Barratt House, Kingsthorpe Road, Northampton, NN2 6EZ, or email, admin@icorr.org.   Deadline for receipt of applications is mid December 2017.

ICorr Young Engineers Program 2018

Next programme to run in 2018

Following on from the successes of the 2012-13 and 2014-15 young engineers programme, the Institute of Corrosion will be running the next programme in 2018, starting in January.

There will be lectures on the subjects related to Corrosion in Oil and Gas, including, basic corrosion, welding, materials, coatings, painting, fire protection and linings, cathodic protection, chemical treatments, plus presentation skills.

As before, the series of lectures will be followed by case studies, with a presentation to be given at an event around the London area.

We are currently carrying out pre-enrolment for this programme, and are looking for around 20 participants in the early stages of their career in the corrosion industry and who are looking for extra experience to set them up for their future. 

The lectures will be sponsored by BP and held at the CB&I offices in Paddington, London. There is no cost for this course for the delegates, and we would like to thank the sponsor and host for allowing this. 

If you are interested in this event please fill in the application form which can be obtained from, Institute of Corrosion, Barratt House, Kingsthorpe Road, Northampton, NN2 6EZ, or Email:- admin@icorr.org

The applications will be reviewed by the YEP sub-committee, and you will be notified if you are successful.  Deadline for receipt of applications is 30th November 2017.
