Integrated approach to strain-based design and assessment (SBDA)

SBDA for entire pipeline service life, including

  1. Design
  2. Material specification/qualification
  3. Tensile strain models
  4. Compressive strain models
  5. Field welding and NDT
  6. Post-construction quality verification
  7. Post-construction monitoring
  8. Strain threshold for maintenance
  9. Interacting defects
