PLASTIC RESPONSE TO IMPACT OF BEAMS WITH CRACKS: SIMPLE MODELS FOR CRACKED PIPING.

Published

Journal Article

Simple applied mechanics models of beams with cracks can be very useful in exploring the effects of various parameters on the structural dynamics of cracked piping. The size and location of cracks, the ratio of impacting mass to pipe mass, and the loading and support conditions are some of the important variables that can be treated analytically in order to identify worst case conditions for more sophisticated analysis via large computer models. The preliminary use of simple analytical models is discussed, and an example is given whereby the worst case location of a crack in a cantilever beam subject to impact is calculated.
