PROPOSED PIPELINE LIFE PREDICTION
As with DeskTop Study, the performance of pipes is very much influenced by the environment that the pipes will be subjected to – soil, water (conveyant) and pressure regime.
From consideration of the important factors which influence pipeline performance, it is possible to statistically model the input parameters, such as:
General soil type or location; and
to estimate Probability of Failure of Pipeline and Time to Failure.
M6 Pipeline Construction South Lake Eyre to Olympic Dam 1986.
Soil Survey Identified High Risk Areas where Sintakote® MSCL was used instead of LPS DICL.
