Part of the Engineering Materials book series (ENG.MAT.)


The given chapter presents a comparative analysis of the technologies presently employed for the repair, using reinforcing wraps/sleeves made of polymeric composite materials, of the areas with volumetric surface defects (also named local metal loss defects) of the transmission pipelines intended for hydrocarbons (petroleum, liquid petroleum products, natural gas, etc.) or other fluids. The above-mentioned technologies are also compared with other pipeline repair technologies (using metallic components and eventually requiring welding operations to be performed) in order to underline their advantages especially in the conditions in which it is preferable, due to the economic benefits, to perform the repair works on the in-service pipeline (without stopping the fluid supply). In addition, the technologies used to apply coating systems (containing polymeric composite materials) intended for the corrosion protection of the transmission pipelines or for the repair of such protection system are also compared and analysed.
