  • Longitudinal Stress in Buried Pipelines near Bends or End Caps

Longitudinal Stress in Buried Pipelines near Bends or End Caps

Accurate estimation of the longitudinal stress is frequently required, such as during the engineering critical assessment (ECA) of girth welds or the integrity analysis of pipelines including defects with considerable circumferential extension. At Kiefner and Associates, Inc. (Kiefner) (a Pipeline Engineering Consultancy company, and part of the Applus+ Group), we regularly address questions posed by [...]

  • Geo-hazard Monitoring of Pipelines using Strain Gauges

Geo-hazard Monitoring of Pipelines using Strain Gauges

Introduction Pipelines are sometimes subjected to various geo-hazards such as long wall mining subsidence and slope movement. A commonly practiced method to reduce stress in such situations is to expose the affected portion of a pipeline. Monitoring of stress in an affected pipeline is a necessary component of a proper remedial plan. But strain gauges [...]

  • CiBot carburization measurements

CiBot carburization measurements: The process that allows non-destructive inspection on radiant coils in the furnaces

Applus+ has in cooperation with Texplore a new solution for carburization measurements, the CiBot Carburization Measurements. Carburization is the formation of metal carbides in a material as a result of exposure to a carbon containing atmosphere. In service, it can result in loss of mechanical properties over time in addition to wastage of the material. [...]

  • Crack management series

Crack Management Series

Within the past year, the American Petroleum Institute (API) published the first edition of API RP 1176, a recommended practice for assessment and management of cracking in pipelines.  While the API guidance typically focuses on pipelines that transport liquids, this document specifically states that the recommended practice is applicable to any pipeline system used to [...]

  • Why utility mapping is critical to risk reduction and recordkeeping

Why utility mapping is critical to recordkeeping and risk reduction

The importance of utility mapping cannot be overstated in the fields of geophysics, environmental engineering and infrastructure planning. Asset operators on sites that contain subsurface pipelines and other ancillary tubes, ducts or channels must contend with the potential for damage to these assets at any given time. For a number of reasons, [...]
