The objective of the project was to perform a full-size physical component test in order to assess the performance of a WAAM manufactured product.
The test has been successfully conducted with Internal Pressure (15,000 psi) combined with Tension, Compression loads (400 kips) and elevated temperature up to 130°C.
Ultimately, concluding with a burst test with a pressure up to 30,000 psi without failure (50% above plastic deformation).
Participating companies: BP, Equinor, Shell, Total - Contractors: SLM Solutions, TechnipFMC, IMI Critical Engineering, Kongsberg, Siemens - Fabricators: Vallourec, ArcelorMittal, voestalpine, ivaldi, Aidro Hydraulics, Additive industries, Immensa, Sandvik, HIPtec, Quintus & the Advanced Forming Research Centre of the University of Strathclyde.
