This 2 hour seminar is designed to meet the needs of Mechanical Engineers, Design/ Project engineers and technologists and plant operation personnel. The participant of this seminar will have an overview of how piping system fails, various inspection method to prevent piping system failure. Several case studies will be presented. This course is suitable for experienced professional who is looking for a refresher to junior engineers/designer.

This course will provide the participants with the fundamentals insight into the mechanism that lead to pipe failure. Discuss various inspection methods that will indicate pressure boundary degradation and design practices that will minimize piping system failure.

Who Should Attend/Target Audience:
Design, process and project engineers
Designers and technologists
Plant & facilities Engineers
Operators and maintenance personnel
Engineering consultants

Professionals who need to add to their current experience and knowledge of mechanical engineering. Design and plant engineers who require practical knowledge and understand what can cause the piping system to fail. New graduates will benefit from the practical industrial experience of the instructor.

After Attending This Course You Will Be Able To
Understand the mechanism that can lead to piping system
Learn various inspection methods.
Gain insight into good design layout practices and why piping system fails.

Gee Sham P.Eng., Senior Engineer with former Bechtel International, former Ontario Hydro and various consulting companies, bringing with him in the area of piping design, layout, analysis and operation for Process and Power plants.

He has provided expertise as a consultant and act as lead design engineer in mining, food processing, petro-chemical and power plants in Canadian and International projects. In addition to the design and construction phase of the project, he was also the project lead in system commissioning and plant start-up activities.

Gee Sham also has many years of experience in operation and maintenance of process and power plants. The main areas including system performance improvement and leading multi-discipline teams to perform troubleshooting, root cause analysis and failure analysis. In addition, he has work as a project engineer to execute design and modification in Mechanical and Instrumental and Control projects.

As an active instructor in this field, he has been involved in industrial training for over 25 years. He has taught courses in technical colleges, in-house training for consulting companies and offer lectures in various technical training institutions. Students from across Canada and overseas have participate in these courses and have provide very positive feedbacks.
