Development of a Model to Accurately Predict the Conditions of Carrier Pipe within Casings Based on Conditions at the Casing Ends

The objective of this project is to develop a general model that will allow for the prediction of conditions in the middle section of a casing based on conditions at the casing ends. This model will also be capable of predicting the conditions in the entire casing (casing ends and middle section) based on the conditions outside of the casing. The locations and levels of cathodic protection depressions at downstream and upstream locations from the casing ends can also be predicted given the conditions away from the casing.
