This paper provides an overview of research focused on the development and evaluation of guidelines for assessment of strength and toughness of pipeline girth welds. It also specifically presents results of a detailed mechanical and microstructural assessment for a series of rolled X100 girth welds, produced using advanced pipeline welding technologies and intended for strain-based designed applications.
