Case studies of corrosion under insulation (CUI), identifying the key contributory factors within each example and discussing the limitations of the first pass desktop approach. Experience has verified that intimate knowledge of the system in question can greatly increase the probability of success and reduce risks.
Simulation shows that navigation algorithms can guide autonomous vehicles to inspect poles or towers for corrosion, or to inspect enclosed spaces. The algorithms use sensor feature extraction, PID control, dynamic window obstacle avoidance, and genetic algorithm solutions to the traveling-salesman problem.
This greatly updated and expanded third edition of Corrosion Control in Petroleum Production is written for non-experts who have the responsibility for corrosion management of subsurface, surface, and subsea equipment used for producing and processing oil and natural gas. It provides an overview and reference on the different corrosion threats, the methods for controlling corrosion, and the establishment of a management system based on risk and continuous improvement.
The authors, Robert Franco and Tim Bieri, have distilled 80 years of personal experience--as well as the experience from multiple reviewers and contributors--into one comprehensive reference. Included are hundreds of photographs, figures, and tables to illustrate the practical aspects and essential theory of corrosion control and materials selection.
