Piston force is a load caused directly by changes in pressure acting on the exposed cross sectional area of pipe. This results in changing in length of tubular and force acting against tubular. In this article, it generally demonstrates force distribution based on a simple tubular diagram.
- 5” Tubing
- ID of tubing = 3.696”
- Weight per length = 17.7 lb/ft
- Total Length = 10,000 ft
- Fluid density = 10 ppg
- Tubing is free to move in the packer
- Applied surface pressure = 5,000 psi
