Corrosion features in energy pipelines can adversely affect the stress/strain state of the pipe body leading to potential integrity concerns. This study demonstrates the application of Reliability-Based Surrogate Models as a means of integrating FEA and reliability analysis in a more reasonable timeframe for integrity programs.
The Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Corrosion Test Facility is equipped with 3 high-temperature, high-pressure vessels and a gas-phase Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR) for simultaneous in situ monitoring of key contaminants. This paper outlines the capabilities of this new National Institute of Standards and Technology facility.
The purpose of this NACE International technical report is to provide basic information regarding the mechanisms involved with cathodic protection (CP) shielding for external coatings applied to carbon steel pipelines, and the manner in which the breakdown of coating systems may or may not contribute to CP shielding. It is intended to be a basic reference from which the tendency of a coating system to fail and shield CP may be understood on a conceptual basis. Non-corrosion-related pipeline protection systems, including concrete weight coating, polyethylene encasement, insulation, and mechanical pipeline protection systems, are outside the scope of this report. End users of this report may include pipeline designers, corrosion engineers, integrity management specialists, regulators, CP service providers, coating suppliers, coating service providers, equipment suppliers, and pipeline/facility owners.
