The team utilized corrosion growth rate estimates collected from a dataset of operations from a North American pipeline operator’s integrity database, and developed machine learning algorithms to estimate risk.
A global research consortium is working to develop a new method to better assess the condition of concrete structures, as well as enabling laboratory measurements with more precision.
This article describes the importance and benefits of remotely monitoring a large distributed CP system, being optimally operated to ensure 24/7 protection of assets against corrosion.
Patterns of moisture trapping underneath insulation were visualized using moisture detection imaging, and a contact-free insulation system with low-point drains achieved maximum drainage efficiency (97%) and the least trapping.
The new technique developed by University of Illinois researchers can potentially be used to make microcapsules that respond to changes in pH, which are useful for applications such as anticorrosion coatings.
PHMSA is proposing to clarify that cathodic protection rectifiers can be monitored remotely and to revise the requirements for assessing atmospheric corrosion on distribution service pipelines.
