The following key questions arise during the life of critical equipment:
- Are the design and materials appropriate?
. Design and materials evaluation
- Can the equipment continue in operation?
. Fitness for service
- If so, for how long?
. Remaining life prediction
- Can this capability be improved?
. Life extension, performance optimisation
- What if it fails or malfunctions?
. Safety, risk and reliability management
- How and why did it fail?
. Failure analysis and problem solving
We provide an integrated approach to through-life structural integrity evaluation.
This allows a consistent philosophy to be employed in the application of the specialities necessary to answer these questions.
