Effect of Local Wall Thinning on Maximum Load Carrying Capacities of Elbows under Bending

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper provides closed-form plastic limit load solutions for elbows with local wall thinning under in-plane bending, via three-dimensional (3-D), small strain FE limit analyses using elastic-perfectly plastic materials. Wide ranges of elbow and thinning geometries are considered.
