Geotechnical aspects of pipeline engineering

Apply unique techniques to investigate stability and structural integrity of pipelines under a variety of soil conditions and operational conditions.

Project examples:

  • Performance of pipelines in compacted soils under long-term ground movements
  • Coupling of stress corrosion, structural integrity and soil subsidence in decommissioned pipeline
  • Stochastic corrosion growth modeling using mass inspection data
