Keywords: pipeline, deformation, bending moment, tectonic fault, plasticity


The article considers the deformed state of the main oil and gas pipeline in earthquake-prone areas under conditions of transverse and horizontal shifting of soils. The quadratic plasticity criterion was used in the derivation of theoretical dependencies. As a result, the displacement equations and the distribution of bending moments along the pipeline are obtained, taking into account the tectonic shift. The analysis of the equation of motion allows you to identify the conditions for the occurrence of crumpling, rupture or cut of the pipeline.
