This article describes current industry practices to catalog features observed after sulfide stress cracking testing. The article also introduces a quantitative criterion to determine the maximum allowable defect size based on fracture mechanics principles.
Sulfide Stress Cracking
Effect of nickel on hydrogen permeation in ferritic/pearlitic low alloy steels – Publication.
This is the first of a series of articles on the effect of nickel on the hydrogen embrittlement resistance of low alloy steels. In this paper, we investigated how nickel in solid solution in the ferrite phase affected hydrogen permeation.
Materials and corrosion trends in offshore and subsea oil and gas production – Publication
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.
