Abstract:

To determine the effectiveness of methods used in the field to protect pipeline systems from corrosion within a group of government activities, engineers from the U. S. Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory made on-site investigations of piping distribution systems in a total of twenty-three Naval activities located in various places of the Pacific coast, Atlantic coast, gulf coast, Hawaii and Inland California. The data collected from the sites were more commonly from service pipelines such as steam, hot water, potable water, sea water, sewage, air, gas and oil. One hundred and six pipe installations were investigated. Information as to site, soil characteristics, type of coating or covering, date of installation, length of pipe involved, and reports on the success or failure of the systems are recorded in tabular form and entered in Appendixes A and B. The most serious failures reported are in underground hot pipeline systems where, in most cases, the lines are installed below the water table.
