Erosive wear Mapping of Pipe Materials

 

Outstanding Applications # 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 determinations of wear performance. This study examines how the conditions under which such information is obtained influence the conclusions ultimately formed. Methods for improving the match between test conditions and those expected in service are explored.

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...

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...
