Abstract:

This report presents a nonlinear analysis of a thick-walled compound tube subjected to internal pressure. The compound tube is constructed of a steel liner and a metal matrix composite outer shell. Analytical expressions for the stresses strains, and displacements are derived for loading ranges including elastic, elastic-plastic, fully plastic, and unloading. Numerical results for the stresses and strains are obtained as functions of internal pressure.
