Paper Number: SPE-187460-MS
... tubulars. A power law fitting formula and the Klever-Tamano formula were used to obtain the best fit mean (average) collapse strength of the test data. Then a risk based statistical approach was employed to develop the design collapse strength. It was found that the expanded tubulars generally have 10-30...

... to understand the ultimate performances of expanded tubular products such as the collapse pressure. When a metal goes beyond its yield limit, hardening appears which causes stress to rise with deformation. There are several models that can describe this phenomenon with more or less accuracy. Detailed...
