The drill pipe is modeled first using pipe elements (PIPE16) with the subspace solver and then using beam elements
(BEAM4) with the Householder Solver. Young's modulus (E) is calculated as E = 2G (1 + υ)*144 = 4.4928 x 109lb/ft2
and pipe thickness is calculated as (OD - ID)/2.
In the case of beam elements (BEAM4), the polar moment of inertia could have been omitted since it defaults
to IYY + IZZ, both of which must be input.
Twelve torsional master degrees of freedom (MDOF) are selected; one at the collar and eleven along the length
of the pipe. Results Comparison
