This investigation demonstrated 2.1 wt% tungsten drastically reduced the kinetics of tertiary phase precipitation in 25Cr super duplex stainless steels. The slow kinetics resulted in a better overall pitting corrosion resistance.
Together with Prof. Afrooz Barnoush (NTNU), we are preparing a Metals Journal Special issue on localized corrosion. The call for papers is open. Enter to learn more about the scope of the special issue and how to submit your manuscript.
In this article, we investigate the inverse correlation between Volta potentials measured by SKPFM and the observed localized corrosion morphology of NAB.
Can we use Galvele’s critical acidification model to estimate the localized corrosion resistance of engineering stainless steels?
Short answer: yes; long answer: it is complicated.
Find out more in our recent CORROSION Journal article.
Are all super duplex stainless steels alike? Does tungsten additions have an influence on localized corrosion resistance?
Spoiler: it does, and it is remarkable.
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.
