Abstract
Abstract The yield strength of the UOE pipe is different from raw steel plate and inhomogeneously distributed on pipe body, because of the Bauschinger effect and work hardening during UOE forming process. The yield strength development of high-strength pipeline steels from raw plate to UOE pipe is investigated by using a modified Chaboche hardening model that incorporates the Bauschinger effect and yield plateau of X70, X80 and X90 steels. The final yield strength of pipe is evaluated by finite element simulation of uniaxial tension of a pipe specimen and an empirical equation. The influences of UOE process parameters on yield strength development are discussed. The results show the modified hardening model can predict the yield stress with good accuracy. The circumferential variation of yield stresses for X80 and X90 pipes are about two times more than that for X70 pipe due to their stronger Bauschinger effect. In UOE forming, C-, U- and O-forming reduce tensile yield stress, and expansion increases and homogenizes yield stress. Fattening operation reduces the measured yield stress, which should be considered in expansion ratio design especially for high strength steels. The yield strength increases logarithmically with t / D ratio and linearly with expansion ratio.

Abstract Large diameter welded pipes used in oil and gas pipelines are primarily manufactured by the UOE process, which consists of U-forming, O-forming, and expansion procedures. The formation of O-forming gap in the O-forming stage is a key processing factor and it involves complex plastic deformation and springback of the steel plate. In this paper, a numerical method is proposed for predicting geometric configuration and O-forming gap of steel plate after C–U–O-forming. A combined hardening ...

Abstract The UOE process is an effective approach for manufacturing large-diameter submerged-arc welding pipes used in oil and gas pipelines. A UOE process comprises the successive procedures of crimping, U-forming, O-forming, joining, welding, and expanding. In this study, a two-dimensional finite element model of UOE forming process is established and all the forming stages of an X80 high strength steel pipe are numerically studied. A kinematic hardening model is incorporated in FEM to describ...

The arced thin plate with pre-strain is taken as the subject to investigate the subsequent bending and spring-back. Based on linear combined hardening constitutive model, the analytical method of the arced thin plate with pre-strain bending forming and springback is researched. The tangential strain on the cross section of the arced thin plate during...

The UOE process is an important technique to manufacture large-diameter welding pipes which are increasingly applied in oil pipelines and offshore platforms. The forming process of UOE mainly consists of five successive operations: crimping, U-forming, O-forming, welding and mechanical expansion, through which a blank is formed into a pipe in a UOE pipe mill. The blank with an appropriate edge bevel is bent into a cylindrical shape by crimping (C-forming), U-forming and O-forming successively. A...

In this study, effects of microstructure and pre-strain on the Bauschinger effect were investigated in two API X70 and two API X80 linepipe steel sheets fabricated by controlling the cooling condition, and their yield strength and Bauschinger parameters were measured by the tension-compression test with varying tension pre-strain. The fast-cooled steels had the higher fraction of acicular ferrite, granular bainite and martensite-austenite (MA) constituents and smaller grain sizes. The reduction ...

Abstract American Petroleum Institute (API) grade X65 steel plate was characterized for its microstructure, texture and mechanical properties. The microstructure was found to be mainly composed of polygonal ferrite grains coexisting with few quasi polygonal ferrite grains. The average grain size with a critical misorientation of 15° was found to be about 3.3 μm. The average misorientation angle was about 36° with a fraction of high angle grain boundaries of 90%. Texture was studied and revealed ...

Abstract In deep and ultra-deep waters the diameter of trunk lines coupled with the hydrostatic pressure tends to lead to failure of the pipeline by external collapse. This failure mode is an instability phenomenon that is governed by the geometry of the pipeline and its material properties and takes place through a subtle combination of its properties. As such the exact limiting collapse pressure is very difficult to determine and twenty years of studies seem to have not managed to clarify enti...

Abstract In this study, the strengths of a steel pipe in different material orientations are predicted using a distortional anisotropic hardening model, namely, the HAH model, implemented in a finite element simulation. The investigated hardening can capture the transient flow behavior under bending and reverse bending strain paths. In addition, the model reproduces the material behavior under orthogonally applied tension from the prior deformation path. To improve the predictive accuracy of the...

Abstract A 3D UOE manufacturing process is established by ABAQUS software in this study with the consideration of detailed boundary conditions. From two aspects of geometric profile and material distribution, the effects of each forming step are determined from three directions: circumferential direction, radial direction and longitudinal direction. As for the geometric profile of the 3D UOE model, the radius distribution of X70 is more concentrate around the nominal value than X80 pipe. As the ...

Flattened plates often show the lower or higher yield strength than initial leveled plates because tensile and compressive strains are repeatedly experienced at outer and inner walls during the pipe-forming and flattening, but reasons for the yield-strength variation after the pipe-forming are not sufficiently verified yet. In this study, ten line-pipe steels were fabricated by controlling alloying elements and finish rolling temperatures (FRTs), and the yield strength of pipe-flattened steel pl...

The rapidly increasing demand for cleaner energies has significantly driven the need for natural gases. Consequently, pipeline manufacturing industries are flourishing, as pipelines can efficiently transport gas. A critical quality measure for these pipelines is their yield strength, because applying a higher operating pressure can reduce the transmission cost; a reasonable range of yield strength also ensures protection from failure. Studies regarding the yield strength change from a plate to p...
