Composite Materials in Piping Applications
Design, Analysis and Optimization of Subsea and Onshore Pipelines from FRP Materials
by Dimitrios G. Pavlou

Composite Materials in Piping Applications explains the design, analysis, and performance of composite materials in oil, gas, water and wastewater piping.

Coverage includes:

  • Complete and unified account of composite materials in oil, gas & water piping
  • Critical calculations for pipe design and above-ground supports under varied loading conditions
  • Theoretical tools enable evaluation of design parameters, costs and performance over time
  • Includes CD-ROM containing algorithms for pipe design and analysis for use with Mathematica software

Composite Materials in Piping Applications is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing algorithms for pipe design and analysis using Mathematica software, which includes equations for calculating joint design, hanger widths, expansion loops, as well as safe depths for pipes under highways and railroads.
