VB-R30 CAA
Consequence Analysis in an API RBI Assessment

September 14, 2012
ISIM Timisoara Romania

Lecturers: Daniel Baloš, Svetozar Eremić

This course teaches how to calculate the consequence of failure as defined by API RP 581:2008 Risk-Based Inspection Technology. The course starts with general definitions aiming to ensure better understanding of the main topics of the course. Methodology for calculation is always illustrated with examples.

At the end of the course, students are expected to have basic knowledge about:

  • what are types of consequences and what kind of consequences can be calculated using RBI methodology
  • what is the scope of this calculation, models and required data for calculation
  • applicability, advantages and constrains of Level 1 and Level 2 calculation of consequences
  • steps in calculation of consequences of failure at Level 1 and 2, as defined by API 581, including premises and assumptions

The course is dedicated to:

  • professionals who wish to deepen their knowledge in the field of risk based inspection
  • other professionals dealing with risk and safety in industry
  • individuals with previous experience in the field of risk based inspection, but willing to extend their knowledge and take up new roles in this field within their companies.
