Brief description This project will propose a novel, cost-effective surface engineering technique that synthesizes an effective surface coating during the pipeline manufacturing process. Seamless Steel pipelines conveying oil and contaminants can have a short life due to erosion-corrosion. The need to develop mitigation techniques against the internal corrosion-erosion has increased significantly as steel pipelines are used in more aggressive environments. The project expects to develop an integrated surface coating during the manufacturing process, which will provide long-term integrity and extend the life of the pipeline. The forensic evaluation and prediction of the life performance of the pipeline will quantify how the coating will combat effectively erosion-corrosion related problems in oil pipelines.
