Full encirclement repair sleeves are very often used for repairing pipelines. When pipelines are externally corroded or damaged, repair sleeves provide the hoop stress reinforcement necessary to allow the pipeline to continue operating at high pressures. So the good news is... Read More

Pipeline Design at San Andreas Fault Crossing

The All American oil transmission pipeline crosses the San Andreas fault zone southwest of Bakersfield, California. The possibility of fault rupture in the fault zone during a major earthquake is a source of concern, since this could result in pipeline damage or failure. All ... Read More

Innovative Solution for Wind Induced Vibration

When ARCO Alaska, Inc. observed that their above-ground pipelines in arctic oil fields were undergoing significant levels of wind-induced vibration (WIV), they called on SSD to tackle the problem. This project gave SSD the opportunity to provide a full problem solving service to ... Read More
