The reliability of thermal analysis of cross-country gas pipelines


In the designs of gas pipelines that must be laid on the bottom of north and south seas, the reliability of analytical results for the gas temperature in the pipelines is questionable. The reason is that different authors take into account various factors influencing the temperature conditions in the pipelines.
