This is a report of the calculation of the probability of brittle fracture and crack arrest for a series of X42 A-series and B-series pipelines. This paper provides the probabilistic analysis to determine the probability distribution of crack propagation velocities using the material resistance developed from Charpy and Drop Weight Tear Tests (DWTT).
