Numerical and Experimental Assessment of Girth Welds Interacting with Wrinkle Anomalies

ABSTRACT: Two wrinkle-like features were discovered in two girth welds of an onshore, horizontal directionally drilled (HDD) 42-inch OD x 0.438-inch wall thickness, Grade X70 pipeline using a high resolution in-line inspection (ILI) tool. The HDD pipeline was buried at a depth of...
