Abstract: The present study performed full-scale pipe tests using 100A Schedule 80 pipe specimens with simulated notched and circular wall thinning to investigate the failure behavior of notched wall-thinned pipes. The tests were conducted under both monotonic and cyclic bending moments at a constant internal pressure of 10 MPa at room temperature. The failure pattern, load carrying capacity, deformation ability, and fatigue strength of the notched wall-thinned pipes were evaluated by comparing results to those of circ…
