A New Material Characterization Approach for Evaluating the Deformational Capacity of Onshore PipelinesDownload
The buckling instability phenomenon in shell structures is inherently influenced by a variety of parameters which may exhibit direct nonlinear relationships with the resultant stress and consequent deformation in the structure, as well as complex interrelationships, under various loading...
Pipeline failures can be severe events that impact both society and industry. The oil spills in North Battleford, Saskatchewan in 2016 and the gas rupture in Beardmore, Ontario in 2011 are examples of recent pipeline failures in Canada. Pipeline failures have led to pipe fabricators developing...
Approaches for accurate prediction of ductile failure of polyethylene (PE) pipe have been developed. The main objective of this thesis is to characterize deformation and mechanical behaviour of PE material under different conditions which contribute to PE failure. For this purpose, two different...
Design and Implementation of Chipless RFID-Based Monitoring Sensor System for Coated Metallic Structures' IntegrityDownload
This thesis work presents structural health monitoring (SHM) techniques for coated-metallic structures based on Chipless Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. The structures of interest for this study include pipelines for crude oil transportation and storage tanks (or terminals). The...
Pipelines are the most important liquid and gas transportation methods in various industries. They help to reduce the cost and to minimize the environmental impacts. However, the public maintains high resistance to pipeline’s developments because they are exposed to the consequents of pipeline’s...
EVALUATION OF METHODS USED TO ESTIMATE THE REQUIRED THRUST FORCE FOR DIRECT PIPE INSTALLATION WITHIN CLAYEY SOIL BASED ON CASE STUDIESDownload
There is a unique technology called Direct Pipe InstallationTM (DPI) developed by Herrenknecht Tunnelling Systems (Herrenknecht) which is becoming more a prominent construction method in the pipeline crossing industry. This construction technique is completed by connecting a micro tunnel boring...

Long chained polymers were evaluated for their impact on reducing pipe erosion during two-phase flow. The research study was compartmentalized into three categories. One of the components of this study investigated the erosion of different materials in an attempt to find a faster eroding...
Pipeline transport of biomass is an economically viable and technically feasible approach to replace conventional truck delivery approach and make the biomass-based energy industry more competitive with fossil fuel-based plants. A 25 m long and 50 mm diameter closed-circuit pipeline facility was...
Pipelines have been used for several decades, and threats such as corrosion, fatigue crack and erosion increase the danger of leak or rupture. Faulty pipelines could lead to very expensive downtime and environmental damage. Therefore, it is essential to have effective ways to monitor, evaluate...
