Compressive Strain Capacity

The compressive strain capacity of a pipeline is dominated by the diameter to wall thickness ratio (i.e. D/t ratio), design factor (internal pressure), and the shape of the stress-strain curves. In addition, geometric imperfections, such as thickness variation and cross-section ovality, play a critical role in the compressive strain capacity.

CRES brings advanced computational mechanics, such as anisotropy, misalignment, etc., to the understanding of compressive strain capacity.
