Development and Demonstration of an Integrated Tool for Mapping, Sizing and Evaluation of SCC for Remaining Strength Prediction

The goal of this project is to develop and demonstrate a tool that enables operators to make judicious decisions about repairs and re-inspections with regard to pipeline segments affected by stress cracking and corrosion (SCC). One expected result is a solution that integrates the latest developments in non-destructive evaluation technology and provides a comprehensive, field ready, tool to evaluate, assess and determine repair requirements for SCC.
