The present paper brings together theoretical predictions and experimental results, comparing crushing tests results as well as carcass wet collapse tests. The theoretical models are of two kinds: (i) numerical (FE) and (ii) analytical. The first kind is a restricted 3D version of a finite element model. The second kind is based on classic assumptions of equivalent ring behavior. Discussion is made on the real yield stress value to be adopted, as well as on the pertinence of geometric hypotheses. Sensitivity analyses, regarding ovalization and helical pitch are also presented.
