Abstract
Single-pass autogeneous welding by 10kW laser of API 5LX X60 pipeline samples, of 760mm diameter and with wall thickness up to 19mm, in a configuration appropriate 4to J-lay operations, is described. The results of mechanical testing, including Charpy impact properties and their dependence on process conditions, are presented and discussed.
