Abstract

The work analyses and determines the mechanical properties of the X60M steel used to make welded pipes for oil and gas transportation. X60M type steels are among the materials most used in the construction of pipelines for the transport of natural gas and oil, due to an advantageous price/performance ratio. Determinations were made of resilience and resistance to breaking, yield strength, elongation and transverse contraction, determined by tensile tests, as well as an analysis of the microstructure.
