UBC research offers faster way to confirm safety of oil and gas pipelines

(University of British Columbia Okanagan campus) A simple vibration test can help oil and gas companies prevent pipeline spills in a way that is faster and cheaper than conventional methods, a UBC study shows.The study, conducted at UBC's Okanagan campus, found pipeline imperfections could be identified by 'tapping' the side of a pipe and then measuring the resulting vibrations, known as modal analysis, against the vibrations predicted by computer models.
