Stress Engineering Services announced the release of the final report on “State of the art assessment of composite repair systems for pipelines”.
For 20 years composite materials have been used to repair high-pressure transmission pipelines. Over this time period a wide variety of composite systems have been developed and evaluated. With the increased demands being placed on pipeline systems around the world, it is expected that the market potential for composite repair systems will continue to expand. Additionally, as composite technology is further developed the opportunities for new applications will expand. An assessment of this composite repair technology is needed.
There have been numerous independent research programs performed by pipeline companies, research organizations, and manufacturers. These efforts have contributed to the acceptance of composites as a legitimate repair material. Additionally, insights have been gained by both pipeline operators and composite repair manufacturers during field installations. ASME has also responded by adding sections to both the ASME B31.4 and B31.8 pipeline codes, as well as developing a repair standard for non-metallic composite repair systems by the Post Construction Committee of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (ASME PCC-2). Although the use of composite materials in repairing transmission pipelines dates back 20 years, a vast majority of the research efforts have taken place in the past five years.
This report has been developed to provide industry with a state of the art assessment of composite pipeline repair technology as it currently stands.
