Update of Weld Design, Testing, and Assessment Procedures for High Strength Pipelines

The objective of this research project are to provide: (1) guidelines on linepipe steel properties essential to specific designs; (2) guidelines and recommended practices for assessment of strength and toughness of weld metal and heat-affected zone (HAZ) regions that are essential to girth weld integrity; (3) develop and work toward codifying test procedures that are consistent with the requirements of the property specifications; (4) develop and validate assessment procedures that can take essential material property data and predict weld performance.
