Corrosion Control with Glass Fiber reinforced Plastics in the Power Industry in the USA

Gas and Power Industry # 1979 Brigthon

Power engineers have an urgent need for the extreme corrosion resistance which GRP can provide. Engineers in the power industry are finding that GRP materials have the properties needed to meet the new requirements - and that they can do so at reasonable cost. We believe that the power industry will continue to be a fine new growth area for GRP materials. A review of case histories is made - identifying those reinforced plastics applications dealing with corrosion control in the power industries.

Joint performance of joints in gravity flow buried pipelines is very important since joint failure could produce structural or service limits to the system. Standards have been developed to evaluate that joints have the necessary structural and leakage capacities which specify test methods that are not clear and do...

Erosive wear Mapping of Pipe Materials

Author(s) : Wood, Moore 1992 Eindhoven

The erosion of pipe materials in slurry flow streams occurs through a variety of wear processes. As a result, the comparative wear resistance of materials is extremely difficult to predict from a knowledge of basic physical and engineering properties. Design and selection criteria must hence be based on empirical...

Prediction of Stiffness of Foamed Pipe Systems

Author(s) : Moore, Stephenson 1988 Bath

A model is established for the calculation of flexural rigidity (EII of pipe sections that contain a solid skin - foamed core - solid skin structure. Stiffness of t h e pipe can be calculated from (EII. The model accommodates different and similar materials in the skin and the core, a range of section dimensions...

The Characterisation and Performance of UPVC Pressure Pipes

Author(s) : Moore, Stephenson, Tagger 1988 Bath

A number of UPVC pressure pipes .of different sizes and classes, have been characterised in materials. Long term testing was performed on specimens under a range of loading regimes, including hydrostatic burst testing, long term fracture toughness testing and dynamic fatigue. In all instances the behaviour...

Relevance and Application of Fracture Toughness Measurements for UPVC

Author(s) : Moore, Prediger, Stephenson 1985 York

Fracture mechanics techniques are applied to UPVC pipe compositions in order to obtain quantitative and credible toughness results. The influence of polymer molecular weight and pipe age-in-service is then examined.The techniques are also applied to considerations of material toughness and pipe toughness.Plastics...

Some factors affecting Toughness in UPVC Pipe Materials

Author(s) : Moore, Stephenson, Whale 1982 York

Short term tests For the evaluation of the toughness of UPVC pipe materials have been examined. A combination of fracture toughness (a fracture mechanics parameter) and tensile yield stress provide an assessment of toughness. These tests have been applied to commercial pipe samples and to laboratory extruded strip. A...

Transportation of Solids and Slurries Through Pipelines

Author(s) : Sprecher 1982 York

The bulk transportation of solids is now setting demands vis-2-vis economic and ecological conditions, particularly overland, which traditional methods of transportation can no longer meet. However, transportation by pipeline provides an ideal solution to such problems. Technological advances in regard to this new...
