Questions from memory (Dec.

2011) Im forwarding these questions to be shared with your future students

WPS and PQR (three questions for one WPS and one PQR) They provided one WPS & one PQR Thickness on the WPS was 0.4320, and there were two tensile tests on PQR with a thickness of 0.8 inches each. First question, Were tensile tests on the PQR acceptable? abcdYes Yes, but specimen #1 is rejected Yes. But specimen # 2 is rejected No. the number of test is not educating for the given thickness.

2nd question They were asking if bend tests were acceptable On the PQR, all of the results were below 3 mm

Choices were abcdYes No No need for bend test Yes. But specimen # 1 and are rejected.

Third question Thickness range was mentioned in the WPS abcdYes No Yes, but not the right range Dont remember

conditions. c- Calculated by a piping engineer d- Calculated by API 570 inspector

Computation for MWAP is as follows: abcdActual thickness minus twice the estimated corrosion loss Actual thickness minus the estimated corrosion loss Actual thickness minus corrosion rate times RL Actual thickness minus twice corrosion rate times RL

During a routine inspection, you notice a bulge in a pressure vessel that is attached to a piping. Your immediate action is Evaluate the case as per API 579 Evaluate the case as per ASME B31.3 Report the case to operation Take both the vessel and the piping out of service for evaluation

There was no question about thermal expansions All short term, long term, and remaining life questions were closed book

I also remember many questions, but they need to be organized in my brain. So when ready, I will forward them to you.
