In this paper, the pipeline corrosion and leakage model were built by Ansys software. The Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation and unidirectional fluid-solid coupling simulation have carried out for the corrosion and leakage conditions of the pipeline. The results have shown that when the pipe is corroded by 2 mm, the deformation quantity of the pipe will increase to 5.2 × 10−9 m. When the pipe is leaked, the deformation quantity near the leaking hole of different shapes would change and the deformation quantity near the leaking hole was the largest part. This conclusion has provided an effective means for studying pipeline corrosion and leak detection technology.
