This thesis addresses the use of composite materials to repair tubular steel pipeworks. Results long terms tests carried out in accordance with ISO /TS 24817 at ambient and elevated temperatures are presented. Results show that the composite repair systems are capable of resisting very high pressures at different test conditions. Impact tests and short term survival tests for non through wall defects were also investigated. All tests have passed the requirement of the standard without showing any sign of failure or damage at the pipe repair. A fracture mechanics based methodology for determining the blistering resistance of repairs when exposed to process media was examined as a method of characterising composite repair systems.
