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.
Hydrogen Stress Cracking
Pre-exposure embrittlement and stress corrosion cracking of magnesium alloy AZ31B in chloride solutions – Publication
In this manuscript, we investigate the influence of hydrogen on the environmentally assisted cracking of the high-strength magnesium alloy AZ31B.
Are cracks born from pits?
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.
Corrigendum – Sulfide stress cracking of nickel-containing low-alloy steels
Corrigendum of our paper entitled: “Sulfide stress cracking of nickel-containing low-alloy steels”.
ISO 15156-3 will set new restrictions on UNS S174000 (17-4PH)
This article describes the results of a recent NACE MR0175/ ISO 15156 ballot that imposes stringent maximum allowable stress values.
Sulfide stress cracking of nickel-containing low-alloy steels
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.
