Contact Load in a Tight Thermomechanical Pipeline Joint

  • S. V. ShishkinEmail author


The contact problem for pipeline connection by means of a connector with shape memory is solved. In the solution, the actual deformation of the pipe is taken into account on the basis of the thermomechanical diagram. The thermal shape recovery of the connector is modeled. The conditions in which this approach may be employed are formulated. As an example, the contact load in a joint is determined.
