Welcome to FESI
FESI - the UK Forum for Engineering Structural Integrity:
Working to assure the reliability, safety and economic viability
of engineered systems, structures and components from design
to end-of-life, and to reduce undesirable environmental impact.
FESI is the membership organisation for engineering structural integrity (ESI) in the UK. FESI disseminates the latest advances in ESI, promotes the exchange of ESI technologies and knowledge between industrial, regulatory, academic and professional organisations, encourages best practice in ESI, and provides a practical resource for anyone working in ESI. FESI aims to help improve the safe performance of and realise the economic potential inherent in the UK's engineering assets.

Practical guidance for bolted flanged joints
Thursday 17 October 2013
Broadway House, Tothill Street, London, SW1H 9NQ
To view the full programme or book now: www.imeche.org/events/S1808
Attend this event to examine the problems associated with the use of bolted flanged joints in pressure systems. Practical sessions given by expert speakers will allow for more detailed examination of problem areas, giving guidance on the design, installation, operation, inspection and maintenance of bolted flanged joints.
Benefits of attendance:
- Reduce risk of hydrocarbon leaks and emissions
- Avoid problems caused by inappropriate flange, gasket and bolt combinations
Improve control over fastener tightening
- More effective management of in-service integrity
- Appreciate the reasons why bolted joints leak and fail
Increasingly, organisations are waking up to the fact that ESI's cross-industry, multi-disciplinary technologies, methodologies and practices underpin the success and safety of their current and future operations, although they may not, in the past, have regarded themselves as possessing an engineering component.
Sectors which recognise that ESI and the associated best practice makes a positive contribution to their survival range from the health, medical and healthcare industries, through architecture, construction, manufacturing, all branches of engineering and transport, to the renewable power generation, petrochemical, nuclear, and aerospace industries.
FESI's role as the UK's authority on ESI is supported and endorsed by a number of eminent and progressive organisations drawn from such sectors. These valued Sponsors acknowledge that the integration of ESI into their corporate policies has shown benefits for their development, operational safety, efficiency and sustainability. Sponsoring FESI is a way of helping to spread the positive message about ESI.
FESI is steered by a Council of distinguished ESI experts and specialists. See Who's Who in FESI.
