Evening of Case Study Presentation Young Engineer Programme 2018

November 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Evening of Case Study Presentation Young Engineer Programme 2018 is Case Study Presentations which is the culmination to this year Young Engineer Programme.

The Case Study which as you can see is a difficult scenario to offer a solution. The candidates have been split into teams assigned mentors and asked to present their case having demonstrated the following:
1. Review the exchanger design/ operating data and propose credible root causes for the degradation of the 1st stage tube sheet.
2. Define the potential failure scenarios for degradation
3. If the cooler were taken out service, describe a testing scope to confirm the root cause of the corrosion damage. Note: The Scope can include destructive methods
4. Explain how you would perform a corrosion risk assessment to help the installation’s management team determine if the train can be restarted. How would you determine the scope the ongoing integrity surveillance  plan to support a restart and what would the scope include?
5. What mitigation options could applied to prolong the service life of the heat exchanger? Critically review the list of mitigation options and present case for the method (s) that would be implemented at site.
6. Using the design and operating data provided, present alternative materials of construction for a replacement heat exchanger and describe the basis for the selection. Note that the heat exchanger design may be changed to accommodate the material selected but the design parameters and foot print should be broadly similar to the original.

The winning team will be rewarded with an expenses paid trip to Nashville to attend the NACE Conference 2019. It is not a holiday, they will be expected to report on the Technical Sessions they have attended and what they have learnt from them. There will of course be a lot of networking and introduction whilst they are in the environment.

Venue: Imperial College, The lecture Theatre Rooms 163 and 164
