MAGNETIC FLUX LEAKAGE INSPECTION OF GAS PIPELINES: THE EFFECTS OF BIAXIAL STRESS. TOPICAL REPORT, APRIL 1993-SEPTEMBER 1995

The project is a component of the GRI program, 'Characterization of Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) Indications Found During In-Line Inspection of Natural Gas Transmission Pipelines'. The objective of the greater project was to investigate the effects of pipeline parameters and MFL inspection variables on corrosion, defect characterization. The work of SwRI, the subject of this report, concerns the effect of biaxial pipe wall stress.
