CPD: Credits: 2 – CPD Ref. no: SAIChE-345

E4A has a wide-ranging content of engineering materials information and provides a course covering selection of materials in a series of services such as engineering parts and equipment designs. The course covers selected applications in various processes, important materials properties and key details of manufacturing and assembly that should be carefully considered for successful long-term performance life in service. This course is thus to be considered as a broad-based overview of selection and design of materials for practical and reliable in-plant services. 

It is not possible to address every point of material selection and design in service, but E4A focuses on key approaches to the designs, points of critical importance and prior recorded failures, and thus serves to make the attendees aware of the wider but important considerations of each material and standard. The use of industry standards and ratings of institutes (such as API for rating of pipes) - both metal and plastic and the service conditions to which the nominal coding applies - are a special sub-section addressed.

New materials and materials processing are continuously added to the course and slides of some of the innovation materials are also discussed.

Economic benefits are achieved by optimization of the total design of each material system

Engineers for Africa is renowned for the excellent and extensive case studies and worked examples we provide. These are unmatched in their range, relevance to the courses, and relevance to all the African workplaces.
