Pipe line security is divided into two categories; pipe line security associated with above ground piping and buried piping. With respect to above ground piping security, the pipe’s ability to resist blast loads which are dynamic and impulsive in nature is required. In this evaluation it is assumed to be dealing with a cratering charges located some distance (feet or meters) from the pipe line. The use of breaching charges which typically consist of plastic explosives in direct contact with the pipe wall or shaped charges which are designed to locally cut or penetrate the pipe wall are not in the scope of this discussion.
