Running an IMU (Inertial Mapping Unit) tool as part of an inline inspection (ILI) survey has become a routine practice for many pipeline operators. Not only does it provide pipeline mapping information, but it also allows determination of the bending strain throughout the pipeline. Bending strain in a deformed pipeline can be derived from the change in curvature between the initial and the final pipeline shape. This provides the means to identify locations which may be affected by construction related strains and ground movement threats.

Whilst the IMU data provides reliable bending strain information about a pipeline; the more...
