Abstract

Application of the leak-before-break concept to nuclear piping requires accurate fracture mechanics assessment on pipes with postulated circumferential through-wall crack subject to combined tension and bending. One important element is determination of relevant J-resistance curve for pipes under combined loading. This paper provides experimental J estimation method for the circumferential through-wall cracked pipe under combined tension and bending, based on the load-crack opening displacement (COD) record to estimate J-resistance curve. To give confidence in the proposed method, the J results from detailed elastic-plastic finite element (FE) analysis are also compared with estimated J based not only on proposed method but also on conventional method using load-load line displacement, which shows that estimated J based on the proposed method provides reliable J estimates regardless of analysis condition, on the other hand, the conventional method using the load-load line displacement record gives erroneous results for shallow cracks.
