Hybrid un-bonded flexible pipe, designed using thermoplastic matrix composite layers for the offshore oil and gas industry is manufactured continuously with the inherent potential of any continuous process that simple defects can lead to large sections being scrapped. Removing the affected area and grafting in a replacement section is not economically desirable and/or technically viable. For that reason, it is essential during the production run of a pipe, to detect and address any problems that can affect its structural performance and service life. Focussing upon the thermoplastic composite layer, the challenge is to address any defects in the affected area without introducing significant changes in the mechanical properties of the pipe structure.
