Abstract: Mild steel commonly used in gas pipeline construction can undergo a change in fracture behavior from shear (ductile) to brittle with common temperature variations. Two recent catastrophic incidents attributed to brittle failure of gas pipelines will be reviewed in this paper along with the subsequent findings of the National Transportation Safety Board. Current regulatory activity as regards ductility of steel pipelines will also be discussed.
