Transverse Impact of Filament-Wound Pipes
Glass fibre reinforced filament-wound pipes have been tested for their transverse impact properties. Tests have been conducted at velocities up to 30ms−1 using both full-length simply-supported and end-cradled pipe support conditions. Measurements have been made of residual mechanical properties after impact. Good correlation has been found between the effects of impact and equivalent pipes tested under quasi-static load conditions up to equivalent damage energies. Finite element analysis has also been used to model the deformation of the pipe under load and good agreement has been achieved.
