    Abstract

    Low-carbon Mn-Mo-Cb acicular ferrite steels are being used by several steel companies for higher strength line pipe above API X60. The molybdenum addition is made to achieve a continuous stress-strain curve that gives higher strength in the final pipe than that obtainable from conventional ferrite-pearlite steels. In this paper, the effects of chemistry and controlled rolling on plate and pipe properties are described for a series of steels: low-carbon Mn-Mo-Cb, low-carbon Mn-Mo-Cb-V, and low-carbon Mn-Cb-V. Low carbon Mn-Mo-Cb steels are shown to give the best combination of pipe properties for up to X70 level with thickness as high as 12 mm.
