Many studies focused on casing collapse resistance under uniform load have been done, and API 5C3 and ISO standards have been formed. However, the collapse models presented by API 5C3 and ISO standards are not suitable for calculating and predicting the casing collapse resistance under nonuniform load (NUL), despite it is well known that the NUL has a significant impact on the casing collapse resistance. Hence, based on the elastic theory and new ISO collapse model, the conception of advance coefficient of plastic collapse of casing under NUL is put forward, and the new equations to compute casing collapse resistance under NUL are established, which takes into full account the effect of manufacturing defects (such as ovality and eccentricity) and residual stress on the casing collapse resistance. The influence rule of nonuniform coefficient of load (NCL) on casing collapse resistance has been analyzed. Numerical and experimental comparisons show that the calculation results (CR) of new equations are much closer to the real failure data than the current equations proposed by Han and EI-Sayed (1992, “Resistance of Cemented Concentric Casing Strings Under Nonuniform Loading,” SPE Drill. Eng., 7(1), pp. 59–64). Research results can provide an important theoretical reference for casing design in complicated stratum (such as plastic creep and dipping stratum).
