The paper deals with the results from the analytical study on ratcheting in pipe bends. There has been no well-defined material model and analysis procedure to predict this phenomenon accurately. A recent development in parameter selection of Chaboche’s Kinematic hardening model has resulted in close predictions in ratcheting analysis [15]. A problem has been selected from existing experimental results [16, 17] published in literature, and an analysis incorporating these parameters has been carried out and presented. The amount of stresses induced and strain accumulated in pipe bends with long and short radius and subjected to internal pressure and in-plane bending moment is studied. The results and their inferences are included. The analysis was carried out on 2-inch NPS SS304 pipe bends with different bend radius and two thickness (Schedule 40 and Schedule 80) using ABAQUS, non-linear FEA software to predict the strain accumulation and their influences on ratcheting failure is presented.
