CAPCOM allows engineers to predict corrosion conditions in difficult-to-inspect cased pipeline segments
The CAsed Pipeline COrrosion Model (CAPCOM) developed by Southwest Research Institute received a 2015 R&D 100 Award. CAPCOM allows engineers to predict corrosion conditions in difficult-to-inspect cased pipeline segments, where a carrier pipe is protected by a casing pipe, by modeling the conductive properties outside (left) and inside the casing (right).
