Abstract: This paper investigates the influence of yield-to-tensile strength ratio (Y/T) on failure pressure of pipelines without and with corrosion defects. Based on deformation instability and finite-strain theory, a plastic collapse model for end-capped defect-free pipes is developed. The stress-strain response of pipeline steels is characterized by a power-law hardening curve, and the plastic deformation obeys the Mises’ yield criterion and the deformation theory of plasticity. Two formulae to estimate the strain hardening exponent n for a specific Y/T are proposed, and a closed-form solution to the limit pressure of pipes is derived as a function of Y/T. This plastic collapse model is then extended to predict the failure pressure of pipelines with corrosion defects. The influence of Y/T on the failure behavior of pipelines is thus discussed. Numerical and experimental comparisons are finally presented for validations of the present solutions.
