Large amount of experimental data indicated, that the index of CVN toughness and shearing area of mother pipe of X80 are (200J, 90%). And the results showed that when charpy toughness was closing to 200J, the shearing area would reach to 90%; when the charpy toughness increased continuously, the shearing area would not increase further more. So the selection of charpy toughness value as 200J for pipeline steels is reasonable, and also its corresponding shearing area. To gain thus component index, the optimum microstructure of X80 steel should be strip-like ferrite mastered, small amount of granular bainite contained-acicular ferrite type steel, and, in which the size of MA island should be less than 1μm. This kinds of optimum microstructure of X80 pipeline steel will exert its softening role in improving toughness and simultaneity not decrease its strength.
