    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a non-destructive, reliable, and inexpensive vibration-based technique for evaluating Carbon steel pipes structure integrity. The proposed techniques allow a quick assessment of pipes structures at final pipe manufacturing stages and/or just before installation. A finite element modelling (FEM) using ABAQUS software was developed to determine the resonance mode of healthy Carbon steel pipe and a series of experiments were conducted to verify the outcomes of the modelling work. Consequently, the effects of quantified seeded faults, i.e., a 1 mm, 2 mm, 3 mm, and 4 mm diameter holes in the pipe wall on these resonance modes were determined using modelling work. A number of common used vibration analysis techniques were applied to detect and to evaluate the severity of those quantified faults. The amplitudes and frequencies of vibration signals were measured and compared. There were found to be in good agreement with the modelling work and provide important information on pipe construction condition and fault severity.
