Structural Repair of Steel Piping by In-Situ Sleeving of Nanostructured Materials

The objective of Phase I is to demonstrate that the mature nanotechnology-based structural crack repair concept can be adapted for application as an in-field pipeline repair tool. This will be accomplished by establishing the overall technical and economic feasibility via proof-of-concept degraded pipe plating, repair integrity characterization, preliminary burst testing, and a first-pass cost analysis.
