Pipeline Integrity Management Under Geohazard Conditions (PIMG)
Chapter 16 DEVELOPING A GEOTECHNICAL HAZARD INVENTORY: A CASE STUDY AND BEST PRACTICE RECOMMENDATIONS
Download citation file:
Geotechnical hazards are a subset of geohazards concerning mass wasting mechanisms (slope movement), creep, subsidence, and other forms of moving ground. Moving ground may present a hazard to pipelines by applying unintended loads or removing support, potentially causing pipeline damage or failure . As with all integrity management programs, a foundational component of managing risk is to develop an inventory of potential hazards. For geotechnical hazards, evaluating the potential for ground to move is the basis for geotechnical hazard identification and development of a hazard inventory. Prior to the availability of new tools, geotechnical hazard inventories were typically developed...
