Plastic Alloy Steel: Crack Growth Behavior Controlled by Anisotropy of Properties and Service Time*

  • 31 Accesses

Crack resistance test results for plastic steel specimens cut from the pipe of the linear section of an oil pipeline are discussed. For studying anisotropy of properties, the crack in the specimen was oriented in the axial and circumferential pipe directions. Cyclic crack resistance values for examined steel after long-term service are cited.
