This paper introduces a novel analytical approach aimed at predicting the growth of surface cracks in metallic pipes reinforced with Fibre-Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) subjected to cyclic bending and/or tension loads. The primary objective of this study is to develop a comprehensive analytical model that accounts for multiple factors...

This paper conducts a numerical analysis on the external surface cracked steel pipes reinforced with Composite Repair System. A three-dimensional finite element (FE) model is developed to calculate the Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) of the surface crack, and the crack growth process is evaluated by the Paris’ law. The effect of FRP-to-steel...

Surface cracks are serious threats to the structural integrity of offshore metallic pipes. This dissertation proposes a protocol of composite reinforcement on surface cracked metallic pipes subjected to cyclic loads, aiming to decrease the crack growth rate and prolong the residual fatigue life. The main objective of this dissertation is to...

Different origination theories for squat-type rail defects are examined and confronted with experimental evidence. Based on the morphology of the three-dimensional defect crack pattern, with a leading crack directivity governed by the tangential stress history, it is shown that theories assuming dynamic wheel-rail interaction as a direct...

Surface cracked steel plates reinforced with single-side Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) subjected to cyclic tension are experimental studied. The main purpose is to analyze the effect of FRP reinforcement on the crack growth. The failure modes and their effects are analyzed as well. Given the single-side reinforcement, reinforcing the cracked...

The surface crack, also known as the partly through-thickness crack, is a serious threat to the structural integrity of offshore metallic pipes. In this paper, we review the research progress in regard to surface crack growth in metallic pipes subjected to cyclic loads from the fracture mechanics perspective. The purpose is to provide state-of...

In the present paper, we propose an analytical method to calculate the Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) of circumferential surface cracks in steel pipes subjected to bending. In light of pipe geometry and bending load case, the analytical formula is raised by introducing new bending correction factors and new geometry correction factors on the...

In this paper, we analyse the surface crack growth in the Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) reinforced steel plates subjected to tension by means of the finite element (FE) method. Following the experimental study, a three-dimensional FE model is developed to evaluate the Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) of the surface crack, and the crack growth...

In this paper, we experimentally studied the external surface crack growth in steel pipes reinforced with Composite System Repaired (CRS). CRS reinforced surface cracked API 5L X65 pipes were tested, containing three initial notch sizes and four reinforcement schemes. During the tests, the crack growth results, as well as the strain on the...

In this paper, Composite Repair System (CRS) is applied to repair the circumferential internal surface cracked steel pipes subjected to bending. The Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) is quantitatively analysed by means of numerical simulations, and the crack growth rate is predicted by using the Paris’ law. First, the three-dimensional finite...

Fatigue is one of the major challenges of offshore rigid pipes. The surface crack is the main manifestation. Fatigue cracks are evolved from surface cracks which are frequently appear in the external surface of rigid pipes. Under fatigue loads, the surface cracks may continue to propagate and finally develop into penetrated cracks, which may...

This investigation examined carbon/epoxy and aramide/epoxy composites in interlaminar shear and in open-hole tensile tests at 90 to the unidirectional fibre orientation. Epoxy resin was also tested under tension. Photomicroscopy and the S.E.M. were used to study the fracture surfaces. Wet tests were performed to investigate the influence of...

Constant amplitude and flight simulation fatigue tests have been carried out on sulphuric acid, chromic acid and phosphoric acid anodized specimens. A comparison was made with the fatigue behaviour of bare sheet material. Before fatigue testing the fracture strain of the anodic layers was determined.

Residual strength tests have heen performed, on 300 mm wide centrecracked panels of various thicknesses, at room temperature and at -50 C. During the tests, stable crack growth was filmed and recorded with the electric potential method. Fracture toughness was determined using the method of Feddersen.

The effects of shot and glass bead peening and hole expansion on the direct stress fatigue life of 7079-1'652 aliiminium alloy specimens are considered. Three types of specimens were employed: unnotched, notched by a central hole and notched at comers. Shot peening was only slightly beneficial for high cycle fatigue, and then only for comer...
