Completed Project on Pipe Bend Studies for a Process Plant in Africa

ETD have successfully completed a project on ‘Accelerated Rupture Testing and Integrity/Life Assessment of Carbon Steel Pipe Bends’.

The objective of the proposed work was to establish the remaining life of the cold formed bend material, with study of material samples to be taken from different sections of pipe, comparing the properties of material at: the intrados, the neutral axis and the extrados.

ETD has extensive expertise in cold formed pipe bends, and Dr. A. Shibli has worked for many years in this area and published reports and papers on the subject.For more information about our life assessment services please click here.
