ON THE DYNAMIC RESPONSE OF DUCTILE PIPING CONTAINING STABLE CRACKS.

Journal Article

In order to develop an understanding of the generic effects of cracks on the structural behavior of piping loops, the more fundamental problem of the cracked perfectly-plastic beam has been studied under various end and loading conditions. Results show that while the magnitude of beam response can be sensitive to relatively small (less than 10-20% reduction in load-carrying cross section) cracks located midway between supports, the effects of end conditions are small for such cracks. However, for large cracks located less symmetrically the beam response can be highly dependent upon the end conditions and the size and location of a crack.
