Steel for Welded Water Pipe – Fracture Toughness and Structural Performance

Steel pipelines have been in use in the United States since late 1800's. The use of steel for water pipe presents the engineer properties that are unequaled by other materials. Compared to other materials, steels offer higher strength and can bend and stretch without breaking. Steel pipe has lower weight, thinner wall and longer length that make it easy to transport and install with minimum field joints.
