Since our founding in 1984, EWI has supported the midstream pipeline industry through developing nondestructive examination tools, specialized testing and computer modeling approaches to support construction, repair, and integrity assessment of critical pipeline systems, materials engineering, and welding process expertise.
EWI Senior Technology Advisor Tom McGaughy has written EWI Capabilities to Support the Midstream Pipeline Industry which outlines recent work to improve methods for predicting failure of corroded pipelines. This paper highlights advanced computer modeling and full-scale testing efforts that have reduced the scatter and bias in current failure prediction methodologies.
