Pelion Summer Lab for Cultural Theory and Experimental Humanities

Please find attached the Call for Participants for the third Pelion Summer Lab for Cultural Theory and Experimental Humanities (PSL), an initiative of the Department of History, Archaeology and Social Anthropology and the Laboratory of Social Anthropology of the University of Thessaly in Volos, Greece.

This 10-day program (August 21-August 31, 2019) will convene an interdisciplinary group of MA students, doctoral candidates, recent PhDs, early career scholars and, in special cases, advanced undergraduate students from fields such as anthropology, history, sociology, arts, political philosophy, gender studies, literature, cultural studies, and communication and new media studies.

This year’s theme - Data & Power - takes on the critical issue of how the production, mining, and manipulation of data through algorithmic procedures has emerged as an increasingly dominant mode of political regulation, capitalist exploitation, identity formation, cultural expression and knowledge generation.

For more details, feel free to contact us pelionsummerlab@gmail.com or visit the PSL website..

Mechanically-Lined Pipes for Deep-Water Hydrocarbon Pipeline Applications

Abstract: Mechanically-lined pipes are promising solutions for energy pipeline applications (oil & gas) to resist internal pipe corrosion; a corrosion-resistant thin-walled liner is fitted inside a carbon-steel outer pipe. The paper focuses on wrinkling of mechanically-lined pipes, which are candidates for deep offshore pipeline applications, in depths that often exceed 1,500 meters. In particular, they are used in reeling applications, where severe bending loading conditions occur, associated with bending strains up to 2% during spooling the pipe around the reel. Τhe liner pipe is laterally confined due to the outer carbon steel pipe and this interaction between the liner and the outer pipe has a decisive influence on the bending behavior of the thin-walled liner. The problem is solved numerically, using advanced finite element tools, which simulate the lined pipe and its interaction with the outer pipe. Stresses, strains and local buckles are monitored throughout the deformation stage with emphasis on possible detachment of the liner from the outer pipe and the formation of wrinkles at the compressive zone of the liner pipe. The influence of manufacturing process on the values of curvature at which liner wrinkling occurs are determined. The numerical results are compared successfully with available experimental data.
