4. Deliverables

  1. Construction of the project’s website (TAMU-Qatar)
  2. A report describing the agreed test protocol for conducting pipeline rupture and fracture tests at INERIS to enable model validation (TAMU-Qatar/UCL)
  3. A report presenting the detailed experimental data produced based on the pipeline rupture and fracture tests conducted at INERIS for model validation and refining (TAMU-Qatar)
  4. A publication describing the EoS and physical properties models for hydrocarbons, specifically, ethylene and its mixtures (TAMU-Qatar)
  5. Joint publication describing the development of the heterogeneous outflow model incorporating EoS and physical properties model developed under Deliverable 4 followed by validation against the experimental data (TAMU-Qatar – UCL)
  6. A publication presenting the coupled outflow and the inline ESDV models (UCL; month 24)
  7. A report and publication presenting the inline ESDV cost benefit analysis model and its application based on a hypothetical case study involving an ethylene pipeline (UCL)
  8. Joint publication describing the finite element fluid/structure interaction model for pipeline brittle fracture modelling and its testing (TAMU-Qatar – UCL)
  9. A report demonstrating of the efficacy of the validated models developed though their application to a real pipeline system in Qatar chosen as a case study and recommendations for further improving safety (TAMU-Qatar)
  10. Annual dissemination workshops (TAMU-Qatar – UCL)
