Introduction

This is a continuation from a short introductory course entitled Introduction to Pipeline Engineering (8th July 2020). It covers the fundamental design concepts of offshore pipeline operations which include loads, operating stresses, wall thickness, stability, spanning and external corrosion protection.  

Objectives

Understand the fundamental design concepts of pipelines with focus given to:
  • wall thickness
  • spanning
  • stability
  • external corrosion protection
 

Trainer

  Dr. Zahiraniza Mustaffa is an Associate Professor at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) for nearly 15 years. She obtained her PhD majoring in Pipeline Reliability from Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands (2011), Master of Science in Water Resources Engineering, from the University of Alberta, Canada (2003) and Bachelor of Engineering (Hons.) in Civil Engineering from the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (2000). In terms of research, Dr. Zahira specializes in the field of pipeline engineering as well as hydraulic engineering, covering the aspects of urban hydraulics and probabilistic structural designs.  Her research capability in the pipeline engineering field is portrayed through the cumulative research grant values of over RM 2 mil. secured from various international, national and consultancy resources.  Dr. Zahira received numerous research product awards obtained through various competitions at international and national exhibitions since 2014.  Her products have been submitted for intellectual properties submissions through patent, industrial designs as well as copyrights. In terms of product commercialization, she has developed a Mobile Apps software by the name of BigPipes.Apps, a commercialized software for industries or any interested parties for the assessment of corroded pipelines integrated with corrosion prediction, with main algorithm applied using the knowledge of probabilistic approaches.  The product is able to optimized the assessment methods which in return prone to cost saving. In the field of flood management and control, she has developed another two products, namely FLO-LOW and CURBVIOUS.  FLO-LOW is a smart integrated system developed through the use of Internet-of-Things, for the safety of vehicle from being washed away due to its instabilities in floodwaters. The system integrates knowledge of hydrodynamics of floodwaters at low-lying roads and later translated into an online decision-making Apps for the benefits of roadway users. CURBVIOUS is a curb newly fabricated using pervious concrete, developed as part of the road accessories in reducing urban street flooding.   The product is capable to intercept excess surface runoff on the street which usually leads to urban street flooding, when not managed properly.  CURBVIOUS has the potential to reduce the impact of flash flood in terms of managing and mitigating floods.
