A couple of failures at the assembled joints of the above stated material over the years is a major concern here. Is there any convenient monitoring technique to determine the structural integrity of this pipe considering damage mechanisms such as fibre debonding, resin cracking, bond or thread failure in assembled joints, fibre breakage, delamination or fibre pullout? Which design or inspection code would be applicable here as many of the applicables codes does not address this situation!
I would be grateful for any professional assistance on this.
