The material model proposed in Part I (Neupane et al., 2012, “Modeling the Deformation Response of High Strength Steel Pipelines—Part I: Material Characterization to Model the Plastic Anisotropy,” ASME J. Appl. Mech., 79, p. 051002) is used to study the deformation response of high strength steel. The response of pipes subjected to frost upheaval at a particular point is studied using an assembly of pipe elements, while buckling of pipes is examined using shell elements. The deformation response is obtained using two different material models. The two different material models used were the isotropic hardening material model and the combined kinematic hardening material model. Two sets of material stress-strain data were used for the isotropic hardening material model; data obtained from the longitudinal direction tests and data obtained from the circumferential direction tests. The combined kinematic hardening material model was calibrated to provide an accurate prediction of the stress-strain behavior in both the longitudinal direction and the circumferential direction. The deformation response of a pipe model using the three different material data sets was studied. The sensitivity of the response of pipelines to the choice of a material model and the material data set is studied for the frost upheaval and local buckling.
