Modeling of Crack Propagation in Defective X100 Line Pipes Conference Paper uri icon


  • Abstract A comprehensive experimental program is carried out to determine material parameters for fracture initiation and propagation in X100 pipeline steels. The quadratic Hill48 yield function along with an isotropic hardening are used to describe plastic flow at large deformation and a phenomenological fracture criterion to predict fracture initiation. Fracture mechanics SENT specimens are used to calibrate post-initiation softening parameters necessary for ductile crack propagation in thick components. Once the material model parameters set is complete a final comparison is conducted with ring expansion test on same material.
