Research Program 1 - Materials

More Efficient Use of Materials for Energy Pipelines

The overall aim of Research Program One is to lower the cost and extend the life of energy pipelines by using materials more efficiently and avoiding material-related problems that result in economic losses.

polesA focal point of the program is welds and welding techniques. A key goal of this focal point is to produce a user friendly industry tool for the prevention of weld metal hydrogen assisted cold cracking.

The program is also being used to support the use of higher strength steels by providing information and expertise regarding methods of manufacture, specification and joining.

Finally, the program has projects assisting with the specification of line pipe steels and the determination of the mechanical properties of the steel.

The Steering Committee overseeing RP1 is chaired by John Piper and the Program Leader is Professor Madeleine du Toit (University of Wollongong).
