Plastic Limit Loads for Through-Wall Cracked Pipes Using Finite Element Limit Analysis

Abstract:

Article Preview

The present paper provides plastic limit load solutions for axial and circumferential through-wall cracked pipes based on detailed three-dimensional (3-D) finite element (FE) limit analysis using elastic-perfectly plastic behavior. As a loading condition, both single and combined loadings are considered. Being based on detailed 3-D FE limit analysis, the present solutions are believed to be valuable information for structural integrity assessment of cracked pipes.
