Material testing and design is an important aspect of all Engineered Composite Repair (ECR) systems and have had many years of expert analysis to develop and support the testing involved to insure that the qualification testing is sufficient to perform successful repair designs. However this is only one part of the process and while it is important successful implementation and application of these systems depends completely on correct installation in the field. For more than 20 years composites have been used and analyzed and much of this work has fallen on the material testing and design while the training and education of site installation is typically only a secondary thought. The ASME PCC-2 is the most commonly used standard for ECR systems as it is highly detailed in all aspects of the process which includes installation training and education. Although this is part of the process it has been widely taken for granted without the due focus and development that it deserves with the amount of responsibility that the technicians take on with actually installing these highly engineered materials. Unfortunately because of this there are negative opinions of composite materials for the repair of pipelines based on unsatisfactory installations. This does composite materials an injustice as they are a technically proven material and widely used across many industries with great success. This paper will focus on the training and installation requirements as set forth within the ASME PCC-2 Article 4.1 standard and why they are critical to the successful implementation of an Engineered Composite Repair system.
