Using CFRP to Repair the Steel Pipe with Fatigue Cracks
This paper provides a new method to repair the steel pipe with fatigue cracks by using carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP). Cracks may arise in Pressure pipeline in service because of low cycle fatigue. Crack defect is the biggest problem, because crack will gradually propagate and seriously threaten the safe operation of pipeline. This paper provides a repair and calculation method for pressure pipeline with fatigue cracks, and some specific engineering cases are given based on this method.
