Limits of plastic deformation tested

Special tests for pipeline laying

When pipelines are laid, especially when the pipeline is lowered to the seabed, the pipe wall is subjected to a change of tensile and compressive stress. In laboratory tests, this must be reproduced in such a way that the limits of plastic deformation can be checked.
