Closed form stress intensity factor (K1 ) expressions are presented for cracks in pipes subjected to a variety of loading conditions. The loadings considered are: 1) axial tension, 2) remotely applied bending moment, and 3) internal pressure. Expressions are presented for circumferential and axial cracks, and include both part-through and through-wall crack geometries. The closed form K1 expressions are valid for pipe radius to wall thickness ratio between 5 and 20.
