Stress corrosion cracking in pipelines

Dec 07, 2006 - Dec 08, 2006
Target groups: technicians, engineers
Category: EducationTraining
This course is designed for pipeline company personnel in need of either a refresher or introduction to data management for pipeline integrity support and to support the risk analysis process. It will review data model types, where to locate data, how to integrate data from different sources, and how to best make this data work for you.

Although stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) is thought to be responsible for a relatively small percentage of pipeline failures each year, it continues to be a safety concern to pipeline operators and government regulatory agencies, and it must be addressed in integrity management plans.

This course will provide a detailed description of what is known about the appearance and causes of SCC, and it will discuss various approaches to mitigating and managing the problem. Practical information on recognizing and dealing with SCC will be presented along with descriptions of research results that have led to our current understanding of causes and methods of management.

Who should attend:
  • Pipeline engineers, designers, and service professionals who are involved with the maintenance, inspection, and repair of pipelines
  • Researchers and regulatory personnel who want to be aware of the current understanding of SCC in pipelines
Included with the course fee are detailed course notes including an extensive list of references as well as a CD containing the comprhensive 200-page Stress Corrosion Cracking Study produced in January 2005 for the US Office of Pipeline Safety.
