High strength steel pipes (HSSP) have become more popular recently for highly pressurized pipelines built to transport natural gas from remote fields to energy markets. Material tests on HSSP showed significant material anisotropy caused by the pipe making process, UOE. A combined isotropic-kinematic hardening material model is developed based on observations made on longitudinal and transverse stress strain data of HSSP. This material model combines linear isotropic hardening with Armstrong-Fredrick kinematic hardening and can be easily calibrated by longitudinal and transverse tension coupon test results. The proposed material model is used to show how considering material anisotropy affects the critical buckling strain of HSSP in the longitudinal direction. Finite element (FE) models are developed to simulate one pressurized and one unpressurised HSSP tested under monotonic displacement-controlled bending. Isotropic and anisotropic material modeling methods are used for each HSSP models. In the isotropic material model, longitudinal stress-strain data of HSSP material is used to define the stress-strain relationship. In the anisotropic model combined hardening material model, calibrated by longitudinal and transverse HSSP stress-strain data, is used. Critical buckling strain predictions by isotropic and anisotropic models of these pipes are compared with test results and also with some available criteria in standards and literatures. These comparisons show that anisotropic models give predictions closer to test results.
