UOE PIPE STRAINS MEASUREMENT DURING MANUFACTURING PROCESS USING DIGITAL IMAGE CORRELATION
UOE pipe manufacturing process influence directly on pipeline resilience and operation capacity. At present, most spreaded pipe manufacturing method is UOE. This kind of manufacturing process is based on cold forming principle. To avoid appearance of unwanted effects, appeared a need to know the level of strains resulted after every techological step. For this case is simulated manufacturing process by using special designed equipment. The experimental simulation presented in this paper is performed for L 415MB (X60) steel plate with 7,9 mm thickness and a width of 1250 mm. As a result is obtained a DN 400 (16 inch) pipe. Manufacturing process is monitored by Digital 3D Image Correlation System Q-400 and priciple of operation is based on Digital Image Correlation.
