The vibration analysis of composite pipes with internal wall defects due to erosion-induced surface degradation is investigated. The surface defects are treated as discontinuities. The geometry of the discontinuity is permitted to vary within the cross-section both in the angular and radial directions, and to occupy any length of the pipe span. A B-spline wavelet-based finite element method (BWFEM) that takes advantage of the localization properties of wavelets is invoked; thus utilizing its effectiveness in modeling of crack problems and local damages. The composite pipe was treated as beam elements that obey the Euler–Bernoulli beam theory. Unlike the conventional finite element method (FEM), the developed BWFEM uses fewer elements without compromising the accuracy. Numerical simulations are performed to demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the developed element through comparison with available results in the literature, as well as results obtained using ANSYS. Some benchmark solutions are obtained for the composite pipe with internal surface defects of different geometries.
