Abstract

Continuing research to optimize the reliability of gas transmission pipelines, the objective was to characterize the ductile tearing of steels outside the scope of present models - denoted "Crack propagation energy, R". In order to reproduce slant fracture by ductile shearing at high crack speeds, a new experimental device was developed, enabling the crack propagation energy of four steel grades to be investigated
