  • Flexible pipe is composed of polymeric cylindrical elements, reinforced by layers of helical steel wires. Its integrity is threatened by a number of processes, ranging from imperfections during manufacturing, impact during installation to chemical ageing and mechanical deterioration during service. Managing the integrity of flexible pipe should address all of these processes. Inspection is part of integrity management. Shell's research efforts in this field have concentrated on mechanical… CONTINUE READING
