Abstract

Composite pipes are increasingly being used as an alternative solution to conventional metal-based pipes. This development is in response to significant corrosion failures with the metallic pipes and enables better decision making especially for the plausibility of alternative offshore energy sources. Flexible pipes which thermoplastic composite pipes (TCP) belong to have proven to have beneficial features. The aim of this research is to experimentally investigate TCP and the layers based on the morphological and mechanical properties, identify and utilize the methods to obtain relatively precise material properties of the TCP which are currently barely known.
