Navigating PHMSA’S Mega Rule on
Evaluating Cracks and Long Seam Weld Anomalies in Pipelines

New PHMSA regulations effective July 1, 2020 require that pipeline operators evaluate the failure pressure capacity of pipelines with cracks and long seam weld defects and perform fatigue crack growth analysis using Fracture Mechanics methods (§192.917 and §192.712).
Furthermore, regulations specify actions to take when there are no documented pipeline material fracture toughness data to use in the engineering analyses and new requirements for the explicit consideration of In-Line Inspection uncertainties in the assessment for cracks and long seam weld integrity (§195.416 and §195.452)
The course will present key material properties and engineering fracture mechanics principles that govern static and fatigue evaluations of planar flaws in pipelines and how to relate these principles to the new PHMSA requirements.
The course consists of:
The complete course presentation material will be available as a PDF download prior to the course.
You can access the entire webinar-course recording online for 14 days following the webinar sessions.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be eligible to receive .7 Continuing Education Units.
