Movement stability analysis of a pipe string in a thixotropic fluid

  • 32 Accesses

  • 2 Citations


Features of movement of a drill pipe string in a well filled with a thixotropic fluid are analyzed taking into account inertial and elastic forces of the rope system. It is shown that processes of fluid structure degradation can lead to nonstationary movement of the pipes. In this case periodic and chaotic auto-oscillations are excited in the system.
