Principal Virtual Work Theories - Cylindrical Pipe Application

  1. Apr 9, 2013 #1
    Dear All,

    Does anyone here familiar with a theory called Principal Virtual Work (Equilibrium theory) ?
    I read somewhere that with this theory, i could relate(for pipeline application - collapse & buckling) the components for ovalisation, external pressure and hoop strain.
    Appreciate if somebody could guide me on this matter.

    Thank you
