There is an increasing interest for the use of spiral welded pipelines in strain based design applications. Environmentally imposed loads are able to plastically deform the pipelines, meaning that their structural response is of the utmost importance. However, since the influence of the spiral weld is not fully grasped, further investigation is necessary. The mechanical response of the pipeline is not only influenced by its material properties, but also by the angular position of the welds… CONTINUE READING
