    Abstract

    In an ongoing project a practical method is being developed to monitor the condition and remaining lifetime of process piping. This method combines both measurements - using a minimum number of fixed continuous measurements - and an adequate computational model. Relatively simple piping was chosen as the first pilot analysis case. This paper outlines the contents of the project and describes the finite element analyses, based on design documents, detailed observation of the piping geometry and supports and results obtained by updated FE (finite element) model.
