Abstract

This paper proposes plastic loads (limit load and twice-elastic-slope (TES) plastic load) for pipe bends with circumferential through-wall and part-through surface cracks under in-plane bending, based on three-dimensional FE limit analyses. The material is assumed to be elastic-perfectly plastic, and both the geometrically linear (small strain) and nonlinear (large geometry change) effects are considered. Regarding a crack location, both extrados and intrados cracks are considered. Based on the FE results, closed-form approximations of limit and TES plastic loads are proposed for practical applications, and compared with corresponding solutions for straight pipes.
