Mechanical anisotropy in steels for pipelines

M. S. Joo, D. W. Suh and H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia


There has been a huge expansion in the laying of pipelines for the transmission of fossil fuels over large distances and in dire environments. One particular problem associated with the steels used to fabricate the pipes is that of the anisotropy of mechanical properties, especially the toughness. This review represents an attempt to critically assess the steels and the orientation dependence of their mechanical properties, with the aim of establishing a basis for further progress.
