Using Digital Image Correlation to Enhance the Evaluation of a Composite Repair System Through Testing

by Colton Sheets and Taylor Yeary - Stress Engineering Services | Dr Scott Perry - InduMar Products

Thursday, February 3 @ 4:30pm
The repair and remediation of process piping and pipelines through the application of composite wraps is finding increased acceptance for a growing number of defects and anomalies. The field application of composites is intended to address defects such as wall loss originating from corrosion, internal erosion, and mechanical damage. Composite wraps do this while eliminating the need for hot work and costly shutdowns. InduMar Products’ XCorr Composite pipe wrap entails a high-strength quadriaxial fiberglass weave in an epoxy matrix to provide mechanical reinforcement and chemical protection to these anomalies in an easy to install format. Although composite repair systems can appear to be one size fits all, it is critical to evaluate the capabilities of specific systems, like XCorr, under loading and defect conditions of interest.
