Jamshedpur, Oct 3: CSIR-National Metallurgical Laboratory (CSIR-NML), Jamshedpur organised a five- day off-line Corporate Programme on Exposure Training on Metallic Pipes. Nine delegates from different CIPET centres like Kochi, Hyderabad, Haldia, Bhubaneswar, Lucknow, Vijaywada, and Korba attended the programme.
The main objective of the event was to provide an exposure on various metallic alloys and materials, which are frequently inspected / examined / evaluated by different CIPET centres for specific purposes.
The training schedule included structural characterization, evaluation of various mechanical properties, non-destructive evaluation, manufacturing techniques and allied limitations for pipe materials, outline of different inspection procedure as per standards and highlights of in-service material degradation. The proceeding of each day consisted of lectures on relevant areas by eminent scientists, acclimatization to the experimental practices using various instrumental techniques, handling of data and correlating the outcome with the standards / quality judgement of component material.
In the concluding remarks Dr. Indranil Chattoraj, director, CSIR-NML, mentioned that such programme will always helpful in knowing each other domain. Moreover, CSIR-NML is actively involved in such activities and ready to support problem solving challenges in metallurgical domain through close interaction. The programme concluded with an expectation to open up an avenue to address different industrial problems encountered frequently at CIPET centres and future collaboration on subject of mutual interest.
