Abstract:

The report contains documentation of work accomplished during study of pipeline concepts, materials, and construction techniques. Objective of Phase 1 was to select pipeline concepts most technically feasible and suitable for military land transportation of bulk petroleum fuels in theater of operation under wartime conditions. Process of pipeline concept selection consisted of 1 Defining design constraints and pipeline characteristics controlling system concept configuration 2 Defining interrelationships between those factors 3 Researching and describing alternative pipeline concepts 4 Selecting candidate concepts exhibiting greatest potential. Objective of Phase 11 was detailed assessment of performance and costs of four selected concepts. Methodology for evaluating performance is developed. Design criteria are discussed. State-of-the-art and older systems are compared.
