## Abstract

Drill string failure is a prevalent and costly problem to the oil and gas industry. This paper proposes a method for remaining useful life prediction of drill string components subjected to fatigue under combined loadings, namely axial stress, bending moment, and torsion. To accomplish this, fuzzy systems are used to model the dimensionless stress intensity factor, of different API graded drill pipes. Based on the gathered database of the dimensionless stress intensity factor for various crack types, the parameter is numerically estimated using Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) in MATLAB. The fuzzy model is then incorporated into the available crack growth models (Paris Law & Walker's Law) to quantitatively evaluate the number of cycles as the crack propagates from its initial size to its critical size. The nonlinear crack propagation model is solved by Euler's Method. Finally, a parametric study is performed in order to identify the influence of load magnitudes, the variation of loadings, crack shape, and geometrical parameters on the fatigue life. The ANFIS model developed has a mean square error (MSE) of 8.3e-4, root mean square error (RMSE) of 0.0288 and R-squared error of 0.9807, thus indicating the model is highly reliable. The increase in the magnitude of stress, mean stress ratio (R) and environmental constants reduces the number of cycles to failure, thus indicating shorter RUL.
