Abstract

In this paper we tried to apply the failure assessment diagram method on an API X60 pipeline under two pressures 70 and 90 bar, this work will be divided into two parts; the first part will be devoted to modeling and simulation of a pipeline under pressure 70/90 bar. With abaqus software to determine the stress intensity factor of several ratios, The second part will focus on the exploitation of these results in order to draw the diagram of evaluation of the failure (FAD), once finished, We can pronounce on the vulnerability of the cracks which can cause the ruin of the pipeline to study, on mode of ruin and proposed safety factors.
