Improved NDT Detection and Probabilistic Failure Prediction for Interacting Pipeline Anomalies

The research will develop an improved flaw characterization method and a new analytical model to calculate failure loads for interacting anomalies. The research will focus on two critical interacting anomaly cases of crack-like flaw in dents, and crack-like flaws with corrosion wall loss.
