Interfacial Behavior of Pipe Joints Under Torsion Loads
The interfacial behavior of pipe joints is studied in this paper. Firstly, through nonlinear fracture mechanics, the analytical expressions of interfacial shear stress and the load-displacement relationship at loaded end of pipe joints under torsion loads are obtained. Thus the shear stress propagation and the debonding process of the whole interface for different bond lengths can be predicted. Secondly, through the analytical solutions, the influences of different bond lengths on the load-displacement curve and the ultimate load are studied. The stress transfer mechanism, the interface crack propagation and the ductility behavior of the joints can be explained.
