Abstract Excerpt: Pipeline infrastructure and its safety are critical for the recovering of U.S. economy and our standard of living. Accurate pipe material strength estimation is critical for the integrity and risk assessment of aging pipeline infrastructure systems. Existing techniques focus on the single modality deterministic estimation of pipe strength and ignore inhomogeneousity and uncertainties. In view of this, this project is a novel information fusion framework using multimodality diagnosis for pipe materials for accurate probabilistic strength and toughness estimation under uncertainties.
