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
Corrigendum of our paper entitled: "Sulfide stress cracking of nickel-containing low-alloy steels".
This article describes the results of a recent NACE MR0175/ ISO 15156 ballot that imposes stringent maximum allowable stress values.
Low alloy steels with a nickel content greater than 1% are not allowed in sour service applications. This paper reviews the effect of nickel on the hydrogen embrittlement performance of low alloy steels.
This posts summarizes the main effects of nickel on the phase transformation of kinetics of low alloy steels.
This post illustrates a possible sulfide stress cracking mechanisms at the open circuit potential for low alloy steels.
