Sample text

1: alteration An alteration is defined in API 653 as any work on a tank that changes its physical dimensions or configuration. Note how this is a much broader definition than in API 510/570 where an alteration is more specifically defined as a change that takes a component outside the documented design criteria of its design code. There is probably no hidden reason behind the differences in approach (other than they were written by different people). This definition leads on to one of the main thrusts of the content of API 653 – that of tank repair and reconstruction.

4 Exam content API 575 is all text and technical descriptions, accompanied by explanatory photographs of a fairly general nature. It contains few calculations. The only calculations it does contain of any significance are the ones on corrosion rates and inspection periods in section 6. These are important but will be covered later in API 653. In practice, most examination questions about API 575 in the API 653 certification exam are closed book. The downside to this is that API 575 contains several thousand separate technical facts, giving a large scope for the choice of exam questions.

API 571: mechanical fatigue: appearance What will a fracture face of a component that has failed by mechanical fatigue most likely exhibit?
