Research Areas

Our team is focused on solving industry challenges through focused research. Our team’s current research topics include advanced-soil interactions for buried pipelines, advanced topics in pipeline geo-hazard risks, and hydrogen embrittlement of high-strength carbon steel pipelines. We are always interested in discussing problems that can not be solved in routine capital projects due to time constraints. Our work shows that these problems can be solved, and the outcome often results in significant improvement to infrastructure reliability or operational efficiencies.


Want to discuss your reoccurring operational or infrastructure issues? 

Feel free to contact Us. Northern Crescent will be happy to provide no-obligation consultation and, if required, develop a research proposal.

Lateral resistance of pipes and strip anchors buried in dense sand

Geohazards and associated ground movement (e.g. landslides, slow movement of soil in a slope, nearby excavation) or thermal expansion during pipeline operation (e.g. lateral movement of pipe at the side bends) results in relative displacement between the pipe and surrounding soil. In the current...
