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:

  1. Material type;

  2. Diameter;

  3. External coating;

  4. Lining;

  5. General soil type or location; and

  6. Hydrostatic pressure,

 to estimate Probability of Failure of Pipeline and Time to Failure.
