Approximate J Estimates for Circumferential Cracks in between Elbows and Attached Pipes

Abstract:

Article Preview

The present work proposes a method for elastic-plastic fracture mechanics analysis of the circumferential through-wall crack in between elbows and attached straight pipes, subject to in-plane bending. Based on small strain finite element limit analyses, closed-form limit load solutions are given first. Then applicability of the reference stress based method to approximately estimate J is proposed. One interesting finding is that a popular approach to assume that the crack locates in the straight pipe could lead to significantly different assessment results.
