Abstract

In this study, an engineering approach for estimations of fracture mechanics parameters, i.e., J-integral and crack opening displacement (COD), for complex-cracked pipes was suggested based on reference stress concept, where stress-strain data of the material was used to assess structural integrity of complex-cracked pipes. In the present study, new reference loads that can reduce the dependency on strain hardening of the material have been suggested for complex-cracked pipes under each loading mode. By using the proposed optimized reference load for complex-cracked pipes, J-integral and COD estimation procedures have been proposed based on the reference stress concept together with the elastic solutions for complex-cracked pipes. The predicted J-integrals and CODs based on the proposed method have been validated against published experimental data and FE results using actual stress-strain data. Moreover, the predictions using the proposed methods are also compared with those using the existing solutions for simple through-wall cracks (TWCs) based on reduced thickness analogy concept.
