The use of strain based design in pipeline technology has been widely discussed during the last decade for pipelines in harsh environment. In such cases pipelines should be designed based on strain criterion. Strain based design poses a number of challenges, particularly on pipe size and material properties. This paper presents preliminary studies on prediction of buckling strain and buckling mode for X80 high-strain line pipe by finite element methods based on full-scale test. The effects of several parameters such as internal pressure, material properties pipe size and geometric imperfection, were investigated to predict the critical strain for 48″ diameter line pipe under compression and pure bending with 12MPa internal pressure. Material parameters of a specification for high strain line pipe were analyzed to promote its application in the 2nd West-East pipeline of China National Petroleum Corporation.
