 In order to study the influence of clamping force and friction coefficient on the stress distribution of drill pipe joint during the buckling process, the nonlinear contact problem and elastoplastic mechanical properties of Φ139.7mm × 9.17mm drill pipe were simulated by finite element analysis method in this paper, and the stress distribution and size of drill pipe joint during the buckling process were obtained. And the effect of clamping force and friction coefficient on the joint of drill pipe. It is found that the stress of drill pipe joint is mainly concentrated in the contact position of drill pipe and the stress value of drill pipe joint shows a trend of increasing. When the friction coefficient is 0.15 and the clamping force is 600KN, although there is stress concentration in the contact position between the clamp teeth and the drill pipe joint, it does not exceed the yield limit of the drill pipe joint, and no plastic deformation occurs. Through the simulation calculation, it is found that the maximum clamping force and the maximum torque are 1200KN and 81.9KN.m respectively. When the torque is fixed, the change of friction coefficient has a great influence on the maximum clamping force of drill pipe joint. With the increase of friction coefficient, the maximum clamping force of drill pipe joint decreases continuously, and the friction coefficient is inversely proportional to the maximum clamping force. The research in this paper enriches the understanding of the buckling process of punching pliers and provides a reference for the rational buckling of pipe string.
