## Slip Crushing Formula & Calculations For Drill Pipe

Drilling slips exert hoop compression on the Drill Pipe which can deform the pipe if conditions are unfavorable. In this article we shall learn the drill pipe slip crushing formula and calculations. A unit tensile stress St from hanging weight will result in a hoop stress Sh that is a function of many factors such as slip length, …

## Drill String Design For Inclined & Horizontal Wells

As was discussed in the previous sections (Drill String Design), the drill string in vertical wells is designed so that the mechanical weight on the bit is provided by the drill collars. The buckling neutral point should always be below the top of the drill collars to prevent any buckling to the DP and HWDP. …

## Drill String Design For Horizontal Wells

How Drill String Design In Horizontal Wells Differs From In Vertical Wells The design approach in high inclination and horizontal wells differs from the approach in vertical wells in the following respects: The objectives of drill string design in horizontal wells are: Provide adequate weight on bit without buckling the drill pipe or heavy weight …

## Drill String Friction Coefficient Calculation

Friction Coefficient Definition Drill String Friction Coefficient determines how much of the normal force is transformed into drag or torque and it is an important factor in calculating Torque And Drag in a wellbore. Drill String Friction Coefficient can be calculated from actual drilling situations for a particular well geometry using a computer program with …

## Example On Drilling Torque & Drag Calculations

Example On The Drill String Drag Calculations Given: Well bore Drill String With the drill string at bottom, calculate: The first step is to divide the drill string into small elements from bottom to top as shown in below Table. The drill collars are considered as one element since there is no change in inclination …
