Re: Analysis of pipes with Large D/t ratios.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It appears that the pipe is being used as a beam or
column. In such a case refer to API RP 2A - 20th
Edition (Working stress Design) of American Petroleum
Institute. Permissible stresses for axial compresstion,
bending, local buckling and interaction formulae are
all covered there. However, if you have concentrated
loads you should go for a detailed analysis or locally
stiffen the member to distribute the effect.
