Bai Yong Ocean Engineering Laboratory is cooperated by OPR and the Zhejiang University, Civil Engineering Department is located in Zhejiang University Institute of architectural engineering construction experimental hall. Dr. Bai who has “One Thousand’s Plan” prize bended his mind to research and test of non-metallic pipelines. There are 8 laboratory researchers, 6 doctoral students, 14 graduate students and 9 sets of a variety size of equipment to carry out the mechanical properties of non-metallic pipelines. The Laboratory already had been verified the performance of the relevant products from the German Readlinger, Nanjing Chengguang, Shandong Wendeng, Malaysia oil company and other composite pipe company.

The long-term focus of laboratory is to combine the theory and the practice. A lot of work has been done in the mathematical analysis and finite element calculation of the non-metallic pipelines and achieved remarkable results. They also published more than 14 articles including two SCI articles. Currently, the Bai Yong Marine Engineering Research Laboratory has the following main equipment:

Single / multiple pressure testing equipment

Multi-channel low-voltage testing equipment

1000 tons /300 tons pipe internal and external pressure test equipment

25t electronic universal testing equipment

Pressure pump

Constant temperature water tank

Bending fatigue testing equipment

External pressure cylinder

Drop hammer impact test equipment

Rapid crack propagation testing equipment

Hot air circulation oven

Torsion testing equipment
