Sirimanna, C. S. and Manalo, A. C. and Karunasena, W. and Banerjee, S. and McGarva, L. (2015) Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) repair systems for corroded steel pipelines. In: Rehabilitation of pipelines using fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites. Woodhead Publishing Series in Civil and Structural Engineering (52).

This chapter explores an internal FRP repair system for corroded pipelines. A review of internal corrosion defects, internal composite repair technologies, installation methods, advantages and disadvantages is presented. Subsequently, the performance of the available composite technologies for internal repair is evaluated in terms of their maximum allowable working pressure, pipe diameter and service temperature. Solutions for internal repair systems are then suggested. Finally, novel analytical methods and the results of experimental studies highlighting the potential of composite materials for internal repair of corroded steel pipelines are presented. This chapter discusses both the state of the art on the subject matter and the most recent advances in the field.
