Abstract

This paper quantifies the effect of the yield strength-to-elastic modulus ratio on twice-elastic-slope plastic loads for 90-degree elbows under in-plane and out-of-plane bending. Based on extensive and systematic finite element limit analyses using elastic-perfectly plastic materials, simple regression equations between the yield strength-to-elastic modulus ratio and twice-elastic-slope plastic loads for elbows under in-plane closing, in-plane opening and out-of-plane bending are proposed, and validated against published experimental data. Applicability of the proposed equations to circumferential cracked elbows under in-plane bending is also investigated.
