Development and Validation of a Probabilistic Method for Estimating Accumulated Strain and Assessing Strain Demand and Capacity on Existing Pipelines

The project will develop an estimate of the reserve strain capacity of a steel pipeline and a set of recommended interventions for mitigating situations where it is determined that there is insufficient strain reserve, lack of data, and/or inconsistency in the modeling process.
