Compression of an Elastoplastic Pipe

Application ID: 12691


In offshore applications, it is sometimes necessary to quickly seal a pipe as part of the prevention of a blowout. This example shows a simulation, in which a circular pipe is squeezed between two flat stiff indenters. The model serves as an example of an analysis with very large plastic strains and contact.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
