Work Package 2

Experimental Validation

(Led by TAMUQ)

Work Package 2.1 – Pipeline decompression and fracture experiments at INERIS and model validation

The pipeline rupture tests required for the validation of the outflow (WP 1.1.2) and brittle fracture models (WP 1.1.4) developed will be conducted by INERIS on a sub-contract basis. This task will be performed using a pipeline rupture facility designed and constructed at the company’s test site in France as part of the CO2PipeHaz European Commission FP7 project
