The design for a pipeline component is considered a tough challenge once defects in the base material develop. To address this issue, we present a gouge defect located in a pipe submitted to internal pressure. This problem is often encountered in the field of pipeline network and boiler components because of structural imperfection. To simulate the activity of such pressurized pipeline, a longitudinal cylindrical shell under pressure from a material of steel P264GH were involved in the research. Secondly, by this paper we propose a safety methodology to detect the boundary of failure assessment diagram (FAD), as a new solution to predict the service life of pipeline products. The methodology is connected to the modified FAD approach, whereas the specific parameters were settled using the Volumetric Method calculation, based on the notch Stress Intensity Factor, determined in the elasto-plastic field. This new modified FAD methodology entails an accurate solution, suitable to be used as expert tool for the assessment of workability and reliability of pipes network, in the case of corrosion defects presence. © 2015, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
