A new process has been developed to track the life of coiled tubing (CT) strings. This paper documents the development of this process, including the material models and the software tools used by the process. The results of this process are a prediction of the CT life and diametrical change along the length of the CT. When the process is used for multiple CT strings, statistical metrics about the strings can be mined from a web based database.
