Advanced fiber-reinforced polymer composite pipes offer high strength and superior corrosion resistance properties compared to conventional metallic pipeline materials. However, damage mechanisms in composite pipes are not fully understood and failure prediction methodologies are currently inadequate. Research is required to resolve these deficiencies which are an encumbrance to the certification of high-pressure composite pipe and its introduction into service. This is underlined by the findings reviewed in the present paper which derive from a comprehensive study on the performance and damage mechanisms in composite pipes and joint modules.
