The growth/coalescence behavior of multiple cracks is investigated through computer simulation to present the effects of multiple cracks on the pipe leak-before-break (LBB) case. For the multiple crack behavior simulation, randomly distributed initial cracks are postulated in a typical vulnerable zone (such as weld) of pipe. The parameters such as the initial crack number, initial crack locations, initial crack lengths and the growth rates of the cracks are taken as random variables. Different… CONTINUE READING
