In this study, the deformability of high-grade pipelines subjected to an axial compressive deformation was experimentally and analytically discussed. Six cases of axial compression experiments with high-grade line pipe were carried out. The pipe specimens had various material properties and wall thickness. Finite-element analyses were also carried out and verified the reliability. Then, a finite-element analysis method for evaluating the deformability of the line pipe was established. By using this method, parametric studies were carried out. The effects of the strain-hardening behavior and pipe geometry on the deformability of the high-grade pipelines were examined.
