In this article, we discuss materials and corrosion research topics that could have a transformative effect on the business. In particular, we discuss how scientists and engineers could push the boundaries of existing technologies, learning from the experience gained by other industries such as the nuclear, aerospace, and defense sectors.
Environmentally Assisted Cracking
This blog entry presents the development of the NACE MR-0175 in a historical perspective alongside research advancements in physical metallurgy and sulfide stress cracking.
In this manuscript, we investigate the influence of hydrogen on the environmentally assisted cracking of the high-strength magnesium alloy AZ31B.
Hydrogen embrittlement is a common, dangerous, and poorly understood cause of failure in many metal alloys. This article presents a model based on the correlation of mechanical properties to scanning electron microscopy fractography analysis of fracture surfaces in the presence of simultaneously active hydrogen embrittlement micro-mechanisms.
Is sulfide stress cracking an anodic or a cathodic process? Does hydrogen play a role or is SSC controlled by anodic dissolution? Find out in this post!
This lecture describes various materials selection and corrosion control strategies for subsea oil and gas production systems. A brief discussion on carbon and low alloy steels as well as corrosion resistance alloys is presented alongside fundamental corrosion concepts.
