This paper covers the analytical development of strength formulas for fracture and jumpout and determination of material constants from 162 joint tests. These formulas were adopted by API at the June, 1963, Standardization Conference, and are the basis for new joint strength values for API casing contained in the eighth edition of API Bulletin 5-C-2 on Performance Properties of Casing and Tubing. These formulas are entirely new and offer, for the first time, a rational explanation of joint failure.
