    Pressure and Process Plant Technical Group: Welding and Related Standards and their Application in Pressure Equipment - Session 1

    This online meeting is structured over an afternoon on 29th October and a morning on 30th October to cover how standards for pressure equipment are developed, their interdependencies, relationship with PED and the process of harmonisation particularly with Brexit on the horizon.

    Since the 2014 revision of ASME B31.3, there has been concern in some quarters about PWHT requirements and this will be addressed by two of the presentations along with presentations on welding standards and welding requirements in sour service and electro-slag cladding.

    Benefits of attending

    • Information transfer from experts
    • Discussion, questions and answers on the specific topics
    • A broader understanding of the extent of standards in the industry
    • Attendance of this event qualifies for CPD

    This is a Member only event, specifically for members of the North Scottish and Highlands and Islands Branches of The Welding Institute. Other members may be able to attend should spaces become available.

    Overview: Features and results achieved on wires specifically designed and produced for Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing are presented.

    Details and considerations are given on optimized drawing, production parameters, specific quality controls which influences unspooling, arc stability and feedability, making these wires different than conventional welding wires. Further observations are also made on the wires chemistry and its impact in both printing process properties and deposit metallurgical properties.

    Then “printed wall” cases are presented, illustrating the mechanical properties, achieved. These have been done with the aim to evaluate the influence of the wall thickness, the effect on deposited material anisotropy as well as the differences and analogies with the related welding conditions.

    Based on these results, wider studies are currently ongoing in order to assess the materials properties, fitting with the requirements for parts manufactured by Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing.

    They also make the basis for an effective proposal on a normative framework for the characterization and classification of Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing filler wires.

    Speaker: Francesco Ciccomascolo

    Speaker Biography: Global Full Welding Solutions Manager, voestalpine Bohler Welding.

    Francesco has dedicated almost his entire career to the welding industry in various manufacturing companies, acting as design engineer, welding coordinator and QA/QC manager. He joined voestalpine Böhler Welding in 2012 as global segment manager for the O&G Downstream industry sector.

    Currently he is leading both the Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing Global Solutions department and the Full Welding Solutions function.

    He holds a Mechanical and Welding Engineer (MSc) and I.W.E. certification.

    Overview: The Fracture Mechanics crack size vs. cycles curve is a key tool for understanding the initiation and development of fatigue cracks.  The talk will use it to illustrate why a high level of control in manufacture is necessary for components that operate in the fatigue regime, with an emphasis on welds and the problems that can arise.

    Speaker: Adrian Walker (formerly of Roll-Royce)

    Speaker Biography: Adrian Walker is an ex-Rolls-Royce Material Engineer with extensive experience of life-limited, safety-critical rotating parts in large gas turbine engines, mostly in Titanium alloys.  The work involved an understanding of material and component behaviors and their relationship to manufacture then operation in the fatigue regime, and covered aspects from prior to alloy melting to the end of service life, including the development of that understanding with academia.
