Monitoring Structural Integrity: Understanding Risk and Reliability

16 Mar 2016, 10:00 - 13:00

South Gallery, Room 5

*Copies of presentations available in the 'Documents' tab below*

Those attending the session will learn how regulators, certification authorities and industry practitioners use measurements and monitored information to conduct quantitative assessments of risk and reliability across a range of offshore engineering functions.  Presentations will address uncertainty and fitness-for-service approaches for non-standard operations and the session discussions will explore how novel technologies can be further developed to better support structural integrity offshore.
