Event description

Description

Overview

The second technical talk of the season by the NACE Edmonton section will be on Tuesday, Nov 14, 2017 at the Faculty Club on the UofA campus. NACE Edmonton focuses on growing and supporting the corrosion community in Edmonton and the surrounding area and these technical talks provide an excellent networking and education opportunity for anyone related to corrosion. The talk is appropriate for NAIT and UofA students interested in a career in corrosion and meeting professionals in the corrosion field as well as for engineers and technicians involved with the corrosion community. The technical talks include a dinner and presentation about corrosion.

Influence of Pressure Fluctuations on Crack Growth Behaviour in Steel Pipelines

The operating pressure of pipelines is maintained below the maximum operating pressure. However, slight changes in the operating conditions cause pressure fluctuations and these fluctuations creates a drive for crack propagation in steel pipes. Due to friction loss from the pump/compressor station, there are variations in pressure fluctuations in steel pipes. In this research, pressure fluctuations have been classified into underload, overload and mean load. These are variable amplitude loadings which contains large cycles of low R ratio and small cycles with high R ratio. A better understanding of the fatigue process involved in pressure fluctuation will help to develop understanding of the effect of these types of loading condition on crack growth rate in steel pipelines and ensure safety and sustainability of pipeline operations.

Speaker Bio

Olayinka Tehinse is a PhD student of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Alberta. She has a background in Materials Engineering from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. Studying Corrosion Engineering as an undergraduate inspired her to pursue graduate studies in Materials Science and Engineering with a special interest in Corrosion of Materials at the University of Manitoba, Canada. Her 4-year research experience covers developing heat treatment procedures to improve the corrosion resistance of aluminium alloys used in aerospace industry and studying the effect of pressure fluctuations on stress corrosion cracking of steel pipelines. Her research won the first prize at the 2016 Faculty of Engineering Graduate Research Symposium, University of Alberta, one of the finalist for student paper and Second prize for the Best poster Presentation at the 2016 International Pipeline Conference.
