Evaluation of Mechanical Properties and Microstructures of Casing-Drilling Steels
An investigation into the mechanical properties of K55，N80 and P110 steels was carried out for casing-drilling technology. The obvious presence of bright facets on broken K55 Charpy V-Notch (CVN) sample surfaces was indicative of the effect of microstructure on the cleavage fracture. The appearing of bright facet surfaces of K55 was attributed to the microstructure of ferrite and pearlite. The fracture surfaces of N80 and P110 CVN samples included quasi-cleavage fracture mechanism and dimple fracture mechanism, respectively. The tensile fracture surface of all three types of casing-drilling steels included dimple fracture mechanism, both the N80 and P110 specimen show higher UTS and impact energy values compared to the K55 specimen.
