This work presents finite element ductile tearing simulation and experimental validation of a piping system with a circumferential surface cracked (SC) A106 Gr. B pipe under simulated seismic loading condition. The damage model for simulation is based on the multiaxial fracture strain energy. The parameters in the damage model are determined from tensile and fracture toughness test results under the monotonic loading condition. For the system dynamic time history analysis, the Rayleigh damping model is employed. For cyclic constitutive equations, two models were considered to confirm its sensitivity. Predicted crack initiation and ductile tearing agree well with the experimental results.
