RBI assessments can take many forms and levels of complexity. Some use software and others rely more on engineering reasoning and intuition. In all cases, what is the main output from an RBI
A schedule of corrosion rates
A risk assessment plan
A multi-coloured matrix for display
An inspection plan with frequencies
Which of these generic types of stainless steels are unsuitable for sour service?
‘Free machining’ grades
Highly alloyed’ austenitic grades
Brittle fracture is a failure mode by crack propagation rather than plastic deformation. It is caused by a material structure which becomes brittle at low temperatures. When would you most expect it
After long-term exposure to high temp.
After wall-thinning at stress points
After exposure to dynamic ‘shock load’
Throughout the world, the pattern of (and reasons for) pressure system failures are similar. Most failures causing pressure release accidents or leaks occur in?

Under API 570 what is the maximum interval for thickness readings to be taken on an API class 2 pipe?
Which of these pieces of information would normally not be included in an NII decision record?

Previous inspection reports
Details of NDT techniques used
Results of the CRA carried out

Is considered a temporary repair
Is considered a permanent repair
Designed by an engineer

Which damage mode occurs due to CUI in 300 series stainless steels?
Chloride SCC of 300-series stainless steel occurs generally above a metal temperature of about?
180 deg F (82 degC)
140 degF (60 degC)
100 degF (38 degC)
212 degF (100 degC)
How does the repair code ASME PCC-2 differentiate between temporary and permanent repairs of pressure equipment?
