Layered vessels have been in-service for many years which use layered construction. This construction technique has been employed since the 1930's. This generally involved either concentric plates or spirally wrapped plates to manufacture vessels with thick walls that otherwise would require very thick and heavy forgings. Long term asset management of these vessels, including non-destructive evaluation of the vessels welds and life assessment of the vessels due to operational cycling the vessels experience can be challenging. This paper is meant to address some of the challenges in managing these critical assets and provide a discussion on the application of state of the art techniques which are being applied today.
