Scale Model Tests for High-Pressure High-Temperature Steam Piping
Apparatus, capable of displacing the ends of a model pipe a known amount with respect to each other and of measuring the resultant reaction forces due to the pipe deformation, has been constructed. Experiments have been performed using model pips of different shapes. End reactions for these pipes have been measured and in many cases compared to corresponding values obtained by calculation. The validity of scaling forces from a model pipe to the full scale pipe has been verified.
