This paper reports numerical simulation of deformation and crack growth in steel pipes under internal moving pressure. A systematic method was developed for the determination of the detonation driven fracture problem parameters. The simulations were performed on steel gas pipes. Explosive PETN cords with detonation speed more than 7000 meters per second were used for creating a confined fracture on the pipe shells. Two finite element models were created for calculation of internal moving pressure parameters and simulation of crack growth. The first model was an Eulerian finite element model that was created for calculation of moving pressure parameters that were applied to tube shell. The second model was a Lagrangian finite element model that was created for ductile crack growth simulation with cohesive elements and element deletion methods. The model used the moving pressure parameters, elastoplastic rate dependent and dynamic cohesive element fracture parameters for simulation of deformation and crack growth. In the next step, the results of finite element model were verified using analytical models. The finite element model predicted the axial crack growth length with less than 7 percent error and crack arrest point with less than 10 percent error from experimental results.
