... pipeline concept and to prevent over-pressurisation. Should the HIPPS fail to respond to an overpressure event, the pipeline may be exposed to pressures in excess of a code-allowable design. It is, therefore, important to fully understand the pipeline behaviour, especially the burst limit state, to ensure...
