Because the long-distance oil and gas pipelines have buried underground in a long term, there is corrosion on the inside and outside surfaces of pipeline, which can cause serious hole leaking accident, and bring the huge economic losses. In order to avoid or reduce the times of failure, inspection and evaluation of the residual strength of various corrosion are necessary. Pitting corrosion is classified into widespread pitting, localized pitting, region of local metal loss located in an area of… CONTINUE READING
