Analysis of pipes with large D/t ratios

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
AISCM (ASD) Vol 9 does not really address pipe sections with large D/t
ratios as far as I can tell. I'm sure there are local buckling issues
related to this, but I cannot find any guidelines with the exception of
Appendix B5 which addresses allowable axial stresses: Fa=662/(D/t)+0.40Fy.

Anyone else have a better guideline?

TIA,
