Butt welding polyetilene pipe
Could somebody, please, help me with an tutorial or some suggestions about modelling the butt weld of polyetilene pipes. I need to make a burst pressure test with explycit dynamics for the welded pipe. I think that firstly i must do a transient thermal analysis where to introduce the temperature at the ends that are welded, but I don t know how to do that. After, i think that i should do the explycit dynamic analysis where to introduce the internal pressure acting on the pipe walls. I really need some help. Thank you very much.
