Paper Abstract

Helical guided waves in pipelines are studied under the effects of pressurization stresses from a contained liquid. The pipeline is approximated by an “unwrapped” plate waveguide, and a transfer matrix method is used to solve for guided wave velocity and attenuation dispersion curves in a multilayered plate waveguide subject to an arbitrary triaxial state of initial stress. The matrix-based model is able to incorporate both elastic and viscoelastic solid materials, as well as approximate non-uniform distributions in initial stress through the thickness of a waveguide. Experiments on a steel pipe filled with pressurized water are carried out to validate the modeling approach.
