51316-7181-Remote Measurement of Stress in Carbon Steel Piplines - Developments in Remote Magnetic Monitoring

A remote sensing technique to detect corrosion metal defects & effects of ground movement by mapping variations in the earth’s magnetic field around pipelines. Magnetostriction is the process by which internal domains inside the structure of ferroelectric materials such as carbon steel alloys create magnetic fields when subjected to mechanical stress.

Monitoring the integrity of buried ageing ferromagnetic pipelines is a significant problem for infrastructure operators. Typically inspection relies on pig surveys DCVG CIPS and contact NDT methods that often require pipes to be uncovered and often at great expense.This presentation outlines recent developments in a novel remote sensing technique to detect corrosion metal defects and the effects of ground movement by mapping variations in the earth’s magnetic field around pipelines. Magnetostriction is the process by which internal domains inside the structure of ferroelectric materials such as carbon steel alloys create magnetic fields when subjected to mechanical stress. Corrosion metallurgical defects and ground movements result in areas of increased stress in pressurised pipelines. Measurement of the remote magnetic field around a pipeline due to magnetostriction allows the measurement of stress and determines the location of defects in the pipe wall. The presentation first explores magnetostriction in ferromagnetic materials and then how measurements of remote magnetic field can be applied to define the location of defects in operational pipelines along with the benefits of using this technique which includes considerable cost savings since no modification to the line is required no input of energy and no change to its operational parameters is needed. Examples of modeled predictions correlating both with actual scanned data collected from the field and ILI defined defects will be presented. This presentation will be of particular interest to all pipeline integrity and inspection management and engineers and specifically offers a solution for those involved with the inspection of unpiggable lines.
