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.
In this manuscript, we investigate the influence of hydrogen on the environmentally assisted cracking of the high-strength magnesium alloy AZ31B.
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.
Do magnesium alloys suffer environmentally assisted cracking?
In this work, presented at CORROSION 2014, we investigated the hydrogen embrittlement and stress corrosion cracking of magnesium alloy AZ31B in chloride solutions.
How can we prevent cracking of high strength low alloy steels when exposed to hydrogen? Take a look at my presentation at the 2015 Robust Materialvalg i Oljeindustrien conference.
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.
