PRESENTER: Aaron Dinovitzer, MA Sc., MBA, PEng, BMT Canada
HOST: Mark Piazza, Colonial Pipeline Company

Join the PRCI Integrity & Inspection Technical Committee as they present research results that set out to evaluate the level of conservatism inherent to current state-of-practice procedures using full-scale fatigue testing.

Learning outcomes/benefits of attending:

  • Understand the sources of conservatism, and how to improve the accuracy of, fatigue life estimation techniques for ERW or EFW pipes containing manufacturing process induced crack-like features. 
  • Learn about an improved estimation method of remaining pipe fatigue life estimates that better agree with actual operational experience. This can reduce conservatism in engineering fatigue life estimates over currently used techniques.
  • Since fatigue life estimates are used to identify inspection intervals and assessing the life of features in a pipeline system, reducing unnecessary conservatism will avoid the cost of unnecessary inspections, pressure tests and repairs before fatigue life is expended.

Who should attend?

  • Pipeline integrity & risk personnel, engineers and management
