Abstract

Corrosion of metal in soils has been intensively investigated in the past. However, a review of the published literature shows that there are challenges for researchers to accurately predict the corrosion growth of buried pipes with spatial and temporal variations. This paper intends to develop a methodology to predict the corrosion pit growth for buried pipelines by thoroughly considering the spatial and temporal variability of corrosion processes. The developed method integrates the corrosion science, conditional random field theory, stochastic process, and copula method into an interrelated simulation algorithm for generating corrosion pit growth fields. It is found in the paper that the ..
