Description/Abstract:A unique nondestructive evaluation technique was developed which utilizes the phenomenon of internal friction in materials and identifies changes in the specific damping capacity as a function of the integrity of the material being tested. Specifically, geothermal drill pipes used in well drilling have been tested utilizing the internal friction nondestructive evaluation (IF-NDE) technique. Various conditional operating parameters such as hydrogen sulfide embrittlement, corrosion fatigue, and stress corrosion cracking were correlated to the useful life of drill pipes as identified by the IF-NDE technique. The analysis of data derived from numerous tests conducted in the field indicate that the difference failure mechanisms each have their own characteristic decay associated with failure in the drill pipe. Further, the internal friction measurement which is identified as the specific damping capacity of the various drill pipes increases as the drill pipes progress toward ultimate failure.
