behaviour of HDPE pipe subjected to biaxial loading

behaviour of HDPE pipe subjected to biaxial loading

I'm interested if anyone has any information/references on the behaviour of HDPE pipe subjected to a hoop stress from a pressurized fluid, in combination with tensile axial loading. Specifically, how does the pipe behave in a horizontal directional drilling pull-back while pressurized.

I'm planning on doing some testing of 2" HDPE pipe under these conditions in the lab and I was looking if anyone has any knowledge of similar test results or related publications.


RE: behaviour of HDPE pipe subjected to biaxial loading

Go to the LA Tech  website. LA tech is involved in many studies in the trenchless market. They probably already did this one.. Also go to www.trenchlessonline.com for info.
