Burst (Internal Yield Pressure) Property of Tubular

Burst is a condition where internal pressure exceeds pressure loading. Burst can happen in several situations, such as well control, pressure test casing/tubing, pumping operation, etc.

Minimum burst rating pressure (internal yield pressure) can be calculated by the following equation.
