Work Package 3

Case Study

(Led by TAMUQ)

Work package 3.1 – Case study on a real pipeline system in Qatar

  1. Demonstrate the efficacy of the validated models developed though their application to a real on-shore or offshore pipeline system in Qatar as a case study
  2. The pipeline system will ideally incorporate intermediate compressor stations and feeds to envelop realistic situations
  3. The source term produced for the simulated failure scenarios will be the experimentally validated pipeline transient outflow data generated using the heterogeneous flow model developed under WP 1.2
  4. The finite element fluid/structure interaction model developed in WP 1.4 will be applied to the test case pipeline to evaluate its vulnerability to brittle fracture.
