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.
Low alloy steels
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!
Does an alternating current or electromagnetic field accelerate corrosion of carbon and low alloy steels? Check our new peer-reviewed article to find out!
This article describes the different forms of environmentally assisted cracking that can affect low alloy steels and corrosion resistant alloys in the oil & gas industry.
This blog entry provides the link to download our final NACE CORROSION 2015 publication on corrosion of carbon steel in the presence of alternate currents (AC). Elmira Ghanbari presents a model, based on fundamental corrosion principles, which estimates the effect of an applied AC interference on Faradaic processes leading to corrosion.
This article describes the speciation of carbon dioxide in aqueous solutions as well as the main anodic and cathodic reactions during CO2 corrosion of carbon and low alloy steels.
