Results from the Operations Technology Development (OTD)-funded “Determination of the Leak-Rupture Boundary” project are providing operators with a better understanding of the way a pipeline could fail (leak or rupture) based on material properties and defect size. This predictive capability, provided as a unique calculator tool, allows operators to model potential consequences and implement appropriate preventative and mitigative measures.
A modeling tool has been developed to provide pipeline operators with a better understanding of superimposed threat interactions. The underlying methodology has been completed and demonstrated as a deliverable of a project on understanding threat interactions. The calculator, training module and final report are available from GTI.
