Considering the future development for offshore pipelines, moving towards difficult operating condition and deep/ultra-deep water applications, there is the need to understand the failure mechanisms and better quantify the strength and deformation capacity of corroded pipelines considering the relevant failure modes (collapse, local buckling under internal and external pressure, fracture / plastic collapse etc.).

A Joint Industry Project sponsored by ENI E&P and Statoil has been launched with the objective to quantify and assess the strength and deformation capacity of corroded pipes in presence of internal overpressure and axial/bending loading. In this paper:

• The State-of-the-Art on strength and deformation capacity of corroded pipes is presented;

• The full-scale laboratory tests on corroded pipes under bending moment dominated load conditions, performed at C-FER facilities, are shown together with the calibrated ABAQUS FE Model;

• The results of the ABAQUS FEM parametric study are presented.
