Article Preview

Nonlinear finite element model analysis of the casing plug joints of steel tubular has been realized by ANSYS software. The law of load-carrying capability and stiffness of joint are separately gained by changing the ratio of length and diameter (R/L) and the ratio of the casing length and the main tube length (l/L). The influence of the casing thickness on the load-carrying capability and stiffness are also discussed. The results indicated that the load-carrying capability and stiffness of the joints both increase with the ratio(R/L) increment and the ratio of the casing length and main tube length (l/L). When the main tube thickness is equal to casing thickness, the load-carrying capacity of joints achieves the most.
