Reliability-based finite element analysis of pipeline dents interacting with corrosion features

Corrosion, mechanical damage and cracking are the primary causes of pipeline incidents in Canada. Major incidents can significant impact the public, wildlife, and environment. Over the past ten years, the length of pipelines has increased 11 per cent, but the number of pipeline incidents has decreased 48 per cent. This is largely due to continuous improvements in pipeline safety programs across the energy industry. To make pipelines safer, the intern is dedicated to contributing to the development of the existing pipeline integrity evaluation method. The proposed project can benefit the partner organization by improving its safety evaluation method applied pipelines.
