A complex of models of numerical prediction of subcritical damage and limiting state of welded pipeline elements under conditions of high-temperature operation, taking into account the features of site welding and the presence of an isolated defect of local wall thinning of the corrosion-erosive nature, was developed. The characteristics of current and limited state of welded structures under the conditions of propagated creep deformations were investigated using the example of a characteristic pipeline of stainless steel. The influence of a local wall thinning defect of a pipeline element on the regularities of subcritical and macroscopic metal damage was shown at a complex temperature-force action. 11 – Ref., 7 – Fig.
