Abstract:Pipe joints are susceptible to two failure mechanisms, failure from the standpoint of strength and leakage. The strength design procedure is derived from first principles taking into account the orthotropy of the fiber reinforced plastic material. The leakage analysis follows the guidelines of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Boiler and Pressure Vessel code. The analytical design calculations are checked using finite element analysis. The agreement is excellent. We also conducted a detailed finite element analysis of a particular joint, designed using the simplified method, in order to assess the safety of the simple design calculations.
