Degradation Mechanisms in the Operation of Pressured Pipelines


Many non-standard situations like subsoil slipping, vibrations, ... as well as degradation mechanisms of pipeline materials can occur in the operation of pressured pipelines. The article deals with the mechanisms of the degradation processes and their formation like corrosion, brittleness and steel ageing that may occur in operation of pipeline systems. Material ageing of steels is documented on specimens created from pipeline materials and obtained by experimental measurements on these specimens after the multi-annual operation.
