Master's student Ussama Kaewpradap defended her thesis titled "Validation of Top of the Line Corrosion Prediction Model Using Laboratory and Field Measurements"on September 19, 2012.
Abstract: In this thesis, a methodology comparing TLC model prediction with real field data has been proposed. The methodology involves the analysis of complex field operating conditions and in-line inspection (ILI) data.
The performance of the developed methodology using selected TLC model shows good agreement between the model predictions and the data provided from the field. Nevertheless, there are still some discrepancies particularly at the beginning of the pipelines.
