A Study on Experimental Evaluation for Fracture Behavior of Carbon Steel Pipes for High Pressure Service with Local Wall Thinning

Abstract:

Article Preview

The locally wall thinned phenomenon of pipes is simulated as metal loss due to erosion/corrosion. Therefore, fracture behaviors of pipes with local wall thinning are very important for the integrity of nuclear power plant. In this study, monotonic bending tests without internal pressure are conducted on 1.91-inch diameter Schedule 80 STS370 full-scale carbon steel pipe specimens. We investigated fracture strengths and failure modes of locally wall thinned pipes that welded and unwelded by four point bending test. From test results, we could be divided three types of failure modes.
