Study on the Effect of Different Joints Material on GRP Jacking Pipe


Article Preview

GRP (Glass fiber reinforced plastics) jacking pipe has many advantages, such as lightweight, high strength, corrosion resistance, long life, good hydraulic and so on. The key of GRP jacking pipe is the joints problem. There are two different joints material in GRP jacking pipe: GRP ring and steel ring. The effect of different joints material on the GRP jacking pipe is analyzed by ABAQUS. When the jacking pipe with jacking force, the deflection angle of the pipeline has significant effect on joints force, even if the 0.05° of deflection, the pipe axial compression stress will double. When the jacking pipe without jacking force, joints force related to free deflection angle of the joints. Through comparison the steel ring and GRP ring shows that GRP ring better than steel ring on the ability to withstand deflection.
