    Welding process and welding engineering came into its own in early 19’s. It was at the time of World War II that welding processes got a new face. Today welding has turned to vital field where lots of career opportunities in it. Welding process or technology had gone through different phases and evolved from a trade to science. Traditional methods got modified during this period of time. In the last 10-15 years plasma gouging became a viable solution. In 1940s the gouging was done using carbon arc with help of welding machine and a carbon electrode to melt metal. The metal part of surface is melted or removed and a gouge or groove is fumed on it. Many types of gouging like oxyfuel gouging, air carbon arc gouging mechanical gouging exist in this field.

    In plasma air gouging smooth and clean grove is obtained. The main advantage that this method provides is that, it is smoke free and also quiet operation. A correct knowledge about the working of this technology and scope of being merged with application based solution is necessary for growth of implementation of the technology.
    Defining the gouge is basic of plasma gouging. For each operation gouge varies according to the application. A gouge which is ideal for one operation may not be ideal for another application. Quality of gouge is another parameter in plasma gouge. Factors that makes a gouge perfect is, whether the operation the operator removed correct amount of material from the surface and also it should be in correct controlled manner. Shape in some case plays vital role in other case may not be crucial.

    The removal of part can be categorized into two ways, positive feature removal and negative feature removal. The positive feature removal refers to the removal of those part above the surface i.e. it will be in space and will not be covered by other material. The negative feature removal refers to removal of part surrounded by other material. Seized bolt removal which is also called nut removal, casting sprue removal, protruding surface features removal such as fillet weld comes under the positive surface feature removal. The excavation of weld defect, spot weld removal and back gouging comes under negative feature removal.
    In negative feature removal, the gouge profile is more important. It is crucial than the rate at which one can remove material. Few assumptions are done regarding gouge profile like relation between width and depth of gouge i.e. width of gouge should be greater than its depth and profile should be maximum symmetrical.
The ionized gas which are electricity conductive is super-heated to obtain plasma. The velocity and energy density is increased by constricting its cross section area. Supersonic speeds are achieved. These parameters are varied to obtain different bore design. When the area become more constricted velocity increases and its cutting capabilities are also increased. These factors are combined to produce partial melting and effective subsequent clearing of slag.

    The system amperage and angle of torch are other features that influence plasma gouging. The gouge depth is proportional with amperage. The depth of gouge is increased as amperage increases. The angle of torch influence the gouge shape. A primary angle is given to make basic gouge shape then another, a second angle is given to increase the width of gouge. This process is called offset angle gouging. When angle is zero it is straight line gouging. As angle increases gouge get wider. As angle approach 90 profile become asymmetric shape.

Oil andGas industry has a huge workers shortage of 100,000 in coming year

US oil and gas industry will be needed of ten thousands of employees in the coming two years as the oil price is recovering and more rigs being explored. In last week government data showed that US has a whopping 287,000 jobs in coming June, and country’s unemployment rate was below 5 percent.
As the oil field has been emerging up there will be shortage of mid-career workers as like in 1980s. In that type of situations since the service company is having shortage in workers, they may have to pay politely to them. 

In the earlier 2014’s there had a severe job loss, so they have concentrated for the related industries for the sustainability. But the talents exit from the oil and gas the industry permanently, since this happened the long term shortage of talented workers are growing up.

As per the studies, the high pay in oil and gas industry makes United States possible to attract its subsidiary and service companies which in turn make employment vacancy of 80,000 – 100,000. In most of the companies they have retained their experienced staff fleets by some salary decrements or placing them in low rank, so can give them  promotion when the oil price get recovered and activity get increased.
If this is the condition as per the whole predictions, all companies have to hire the individuals and provide them with the training skill for make them employable.
One more positivity for the people is that the industry hasn’t done any new hiring for last two years. At the same time, enrollment in petroleum engineering programs across US was falling. Secondly, a large number of experienced and high income workers have retired or gone out of the industry leaving a large opportunity for the middle level employers to fill the skills gap.

Structural Engineering

Structural Engineers are prepared to comprehend and ascertain the solidness, quality and unbending nature of assembled structures for buildings and non building structures, to create plans and incorporate their configuration with that of different planners, and to administer development of undertakings on site. They can likewise be included in the outline of hardware, medicinal gear, vehicles and so forth where basic uprightness influences working and security. 

Structural Engineering hypothesis is based upon connected physical laws and experimental learning of the basic execution of various materials and geometries. Auxiliary designing outline uses various generally straightforward basic components to manufacture complex basic frameworks. Basic specialists are in charge of making innovative and effective utilization of assets, basic components and materials to accomplish these goals.

Roles and Responsibilities of a QA/QC Engineer -Construction Field

  • Survey the Material Technical Data Sheet
    • Each material information sheet of the material to be supplied to the venture that must be perused by a quality architect. Particularly when the material is going to submit to the Engineer or Consultant, it must be investigated appropriately in light of the fact that occasionally the properties of material don't conform to the necessity of the detail, then that would presumably be dismisses and will bring about an exercise in futility and in the long run make delay.
  • Arrangement of Method Statement
    •  A QA/QC Engineer should add to a technique articulation for the specific work on the site. The QA/QC Engineer should set up the strategy explanation in front of timetable for the occupations and think about making as an arrangement for all the technique articulations planning and accommodation
  • Audit Method Statement endorsement or remarks of the Engineer and make a move
    • When you got the endorsement or remarks on the technique articulation the quality specialist will survey it, any restorative activity in the remarks should be quickly gone along and in the long run return back for conclusive endorsement. Try not to keep the remarks on your hand for a drawn out stretch of time on the grounds that the development group can't continue the works until technique articulation is finished.
    • Assessment ask for might be submitted to the Engineer for endorsement of a specific occupation before you can continue with the succeeding work. You might ensure that the occupation to be investigated is finished so that there will be no updates or dismissal of the should ensure that the Inspection and Test Plan is endorsed before raising an assessment demand.
  •  Issue Internal NCR or Site Observation

    • You can issue an inner non conformance report and site perception to the subcontractors and site development group. Before issuing a NCR to the worry exchanges ensure you issue first the site perception report, give them no less than 72 hours to make a move, however before that they ought to present the restorative activity and if following 72 hours there is no activity then you might issue a NCR.
  •  Conduct normal Site Surveillance

    • As a quality specialist make a routine to lead site reconnaissance, you might plan it for your own particular such as consistently or each other day. Also, the well being of individuals doing the works, you have a privilege to prevent them from doing dangerous work, however it is Safety Officers
  • Get ready QA/QC Reports   
    • The quality specialist should set up a QA/QC week after week report. You should express every one of the exercises that you performed in the previous week and basic issues that you have taken note.A month to month report should be arranged by a quality architect be that as it may, this is simply extend case premise.
