Tutorial 4 - The GeoHazards Toolbox: Managing Pipeline Integrity and External Threats (WG 11)

Options, techniques, and tools for managing pipeline integrity from Geohazards have grown dramatically as our industry has embraced the need. This sudden growth, however, may leave companies wondering what tools are available, what are practical, and what are fundamental to an effective program. This tutorial will expose attendees to a wide array of options known to the presenter, and open discussion about how and when any particular tool might be used. This tutorial is intended to complement the subsequent Geohazards session, and unlike previous Geohazards tutorials, assumes familiarity with the basic concepts of geotechnical and hydrotechnical hazard and risk as they relate to pipelines.
