Out of 800 submissions and more than 300 presentations, the article “Strain Capacity of Large Diameter Pipes: Full Scale Investigation with Influence of Girth Weld, Strip End Weld and Ageing Effects” was one of the 16 best papers presented at the conference.
Held every two years, the conference is one of the most important conferences of the pipeline industry. Results from the “LiSA II” (large pipe bending machine - Limit State Analyzer) project were presented. The award indicates that the results obtained are generating strong interest on the part of customers and the market.

At the annual “Materials Testing” (Werktoffprüfung) conference, Dr.-Ing. Marion Erdelen-Peppler was awarded the Galileo Prize 2015. She was thus honored for her exceptional performance and service in the area of materials testing by the community comprising Stahlinstitut VDEh, Deutscher Verband für Materialprüfung (DVM) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde (DGM).
The exceptional performance by Dr.-Ing. Erdelen-Peppler included her contributions to the further development and application of specific methods for testing and evaluating fracture behavior and for determining application limits of steel pipes in industrial practice, especially in connection with energy transport.
