Realistic Strain Capacity Models for Pipeline Construction and Maintenance

This work builds up the latest developments in compressive and tensile strain capacity models and extends these models to realistic design and application scenarios. There are two major components (1) development of a unified Strain-Based Design (SBD) methodology in which the compressive and tensile strain limit states can be analyzed in a consistent manner, and (2) refinement of existing compressive models to the same level of sophistication and consistency as the tensile strain models. Both new pipeline construction and maintenance of existing pipelines will benefit from the output of this work.
