PhD thesis, Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering.
The results show that the SENT specimen could be used to test the fracture toughness and R-curves of the welded joint; the welded joint of welding method B presented the poorest fracture toughness; and the R-curves and fracture toughness of the heat-affected zone were seriously affected by the weld zone and base metal. Keywords: Pipeline, plastic strain, line pipe steels, fracture toughness, fracture resistance, fitness-for-service, engineering critical assessment 1. Weldability concerns in pipeline construction The construction of a pipeline involves joining sections of pipes with circumferential welds known as girth welds.

This article focuses on a widely used alternative defect acceptance criteria for pipeline girth welds, API Appendix A, 20th edition errata/addendum, released in Pipeline girth weld acceptance standards (e.g. API Welding of Pipelines and. The fracture behavior of girth welded joints with a surface notch in the weld metal has been investigated using wide plate testing and 3D FE-analyses. The base steel used was a Grade pipeline steel, and overmatched, matched and undermatched weld metals were evaluated.

The relationship between fracture toughness estimated using standard single edge notch bend (SENB), single edge notch tension (SENT) test specimens and fracture toughness associated with a circumferential flaw in a pipe girth weld is explored in terms of constraint using the Q parameter.
Fracture toughness of mechanised pipeline girth welds Author: Tinston, S. Awarding Body: University of Salford Current Institution: University of Salford Date of Award: Availability of Full Text. Fracture mechanics assessments of flaws in pipeline girth welds are discussed. Explores some limitations of conventional fracture mechanics assessments when applied to X pipeline girth welds.
These are revealed by comparison of J driving force based on modifications to the basic BS assessment procedures with elastic-plastic FEA. Also, it is important that pipeline girth welds that may experience high strains in operation have sufficient toughness to ensure adequate resistance to failure by fracture.
The objective of this research was to gain Fracture toughness of mechanised pipeline girth welds. book better understanding of the influence of chemical composition and essential welding variables on microstructure and properties Author: Yu Liu, Yezheng Li, Shuo Li, Zongbin You, Zhanghua Yin.
Fracture mechanics analysis utilizes the fracture toughness of a material to determine the allowable size for a flaw that can withstand the maximum stresses envisioned for a particular pipeline application. Current pipeline standards define acceptable flaw size in terms of the length of the flaw as it appears on the radiograph.
Although the concept of dividing the weld into zones was popularised in the pipeline industry by Glover et al[Mechanised Ultrasonic Inspection of Pipeline Girth Welds, part 4, Glover, A.G., Fingerhut, M.P., Dorling,D.V., Dept.

The specific areas of interest described are the development of suitable girth welding procedures using mechanised GMAW and SMAW processes, the resultant joint properties and the assessment of defect tolerance levels applicable to X line pipe and girth welds.
Lack of fusion in girth welds is caused by a non-union between the weld metal and the base material or previous weld passes.
Different types of lack of fusion exist in girth welds based on location. These include, for example, lack of root fusion, lack of sidewall fusion and lack of inter-run fusion. Application Notes.
Fracture Toughness Characterization of High-Pressure Pipe Girth Welds Using Single-Edge Tension SE(T) Specimens. Published. August 1, and PRCI (Pipeline Research Council International), aimed at characterizing the mechanical properties of single-torch and dual-torch girth welds from X pipes.
This paper presents fracture toughness. More recently, fracture toughness data for duplex weld metals and HAZs, measured via CTOD, have been shown to correlate fairly well with Charpy toughness data, 1,27,31–33 e.g. Fig.although dependent on thickness.
Also for quite low impact strengths, reasonable CTOD-values are obtained. The guidelines and recommendations for fracture toughness testing of pipeline girth welds outlined in CSA Z, Annex K are reviewed in this work.
In Annex K of CSA Z, the specimen type and notch location have been grouped into four categories and the CTOD tests are to be carried out in accordance with either BSI Standard or ASTM. Fracture toughness was studied for several steels. Case histories of gas transmission pipes made from 5LS-X65, 5LS-X70, 5LX-X70, and 5LX-X65 are given.
Welding of Mo--Nb line pipe in mill and field is discussed, with an evaluation of girth welds. 9 tables,more» «less. In the transportation of oil and gas products from and over remote locations, such as Canada's Arctic environment, pipelines are used.
Girth welding to join sections of steel pipelines creates a substantial heat affected zone (HAZ) within the base pipeline steel. While there is significant concern as to the fracture and mechanical properties of the HAZ as whole, detailed knowledge about the. The difference in toughness between the standardized specimens and pipeline welds can be partly attributed to the constraint effects.
In this paper, the constraint effect of X80 pipeline girth weld was studied using SENB (Single edge notch bending), SENT (Single notch tensile) and CWP (Curved wide plate test). The results showed that the level. mainline welding. TANAP mainline welding produced using mechanised welding systems (m-GMAW).
Providing a same filler batch by supplier, the fracture toughness of the weld metal considered independent of the linepipe supply condition. Hence by qualifying combinations of the sources, the number of required qualifications is significantly reduced.
CTOD fracture toughness testing was performed on a reproduced girth weld. The joint tested was welded using pipe remaining from installation with virtually identical chemistry and mechanical.

Discussion— In CTOD testing, dc[L]character-izes the CTOD fracture toughness of materials at fracture instability prior to the onset of signiﬁcant stable tearing crack extension.
The value of dc c determined by this test method represents a measure of fracture toughness at instability with. Core to the construction of a pipeline is girth welding of line pipes i.e. faster the welding rate, more is the progress achieved. Girth welding (Ref 1) process is involved in mainline welding, tie-in welding and repair welding of the line ne girth welding, however, poses a lot of additional challenges when compared to the usual plant welding or mill welding of pipes, as it has to.&, Developments in Ultrasonic Inspection for Total Inspection of Pipeline Girth Welds, 8th Symposium on Pipeline Research, Houston, Texas, August Glover et al, Inspection and Assessment of Mechanized Pipeline Girth Welds, Proceedings: Weldt London, UK, Purchase Proceedings of the Metallurgical Society of the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy - 1st Edition.
