Description

Dents are plastic deformations on a pipeline’s cross-section caused by contact with external forces. They are known to have the potential to adversely affect the structural integrity of the pipeline as they induce localized strains and stresses on the pipeline. In this study, the finite element analysis of a dented plate and an analytical approach to the determination of strains based on a dent profile are compared in a bid to develop a procedure for evaluating the strains on a dented pipeline based solely on the dent profile.
