Real-Time Active Pipeline Integrity Detection (RAPID)
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The proposed research will use SHM technology to provide an early indication of any physical damage to the pipeline so it can be assessed with minimal labor involvement prior to a potential structural failure. The SHM technology consists of a network of distributed piezoelectric sensors/actuators embedded on a thin dielectric film that can be applied to new or existing pipelines. Modules of diagnostic data acquisition hardware will be placed at scheduled intervals along the pipeline to collect and analyze signals from the sensor layer and transmit them to the back office.
