Pipeline Webinar Episode 7: Don’t Wear Your Pipe Out!
GeoEngineers is continuing its series of free pipeline webinars with a March 7 presentation on the risks of pipe fatigue during pipeline installation. Join us as Urso Campos presents on the risks of hammer-induced fatigue in steel pipe, highlighting in particular how the duration of hammer use (cyclic loading) is directly correlated to potential fatigue failure at the girth welds. Urso will share a simple procedure that can be used to conduct fatigue analysis to evaluate the maximum recommended time of pneumatic hammer operation to prevent fatigue leading to steel pipe failure.
Presenter: Urso Campos, PE, PhD, Pipeline Engineer
Moderator: Jon Robison, PE, Principal Engineer/Pipelines Discipline Leader
The webinar will be on March 7, 2023 at 1:00 PM (CST). RSVP for the free webinar using this form, and visit our Pipeline Webinar Page for more archived webinars in the series and information about upcoming sessions.
