Structural Mechanics and Design of Metal Pipes: A systematic approach for onshore and offshore pipelines presents a unified and systematic approach to understanding and analyzing the structural behavior of onshore and offshore metallic pipelines. Following an overview of pipeline engineering and pipe fabrication, the mechanics of elastic rings and cylinders is presented as a prelude to structural performance of metal pipes under various loading conditions, which involve pressure and structural loads. The book also discusses special topics, such as geohazards and strain-based design, large-diameter water pipelines, global buckling and mechanically-lined pipes, and outlines approaches for developing state-of-the-art finite element models. In all topics addressed in this book, the mechanical behavior of pipes is related with specific design methods for onshore and offshore pipelines.
