LINKpipe - a powerful new tool for fracture integrity assessments

 

LINKpipe is a powerful non-linear, special-purpose finite element tool for performing fracture mechanics calculations in pipelines and piping structures

Performing complex finite element analyses can be time consuming and difficult. LINKpipe's unique advantage is that it is based on shell finite elements and modified line spring technology. This gives similar accuracy but significantly reduced pre-processing, post-processing and computation time as compared to full 3D FE analyses.

LINKpipe FE Model

LINKpipe is easy to learn and use and efficient enough for design, which means conventional analytical-based methods can be replaced by more accurate FE calculations during FEED and detailed design

LINKpipe implements the most advanced technology in the field and:
