This workshop provides a broad overview of analysis methods for defects in pipeline. The workshop begins with an introduction, followed by a summary of important material properties and a review of integrity assessment methods for pipeline defects. Then, analysis methods for corrosion are covered, including each of the methods cited in the most recent version of ASME B31G. Day 1 ends with a discussion on analysis methods for mechanical damage.
The second day covers analysis methods for cracks and begins with a basic introduction to fracture mechanics. Methods of measuring toughness associated with linearly elastic and elastic-plastic behavior are covered. Next, the use of failure assessment diagrams and the development of the log-secant equation are discussed, followed by J-integral based assessments. Finally, both propagating fractures and fatigue are covered.
