This blog entry presents the development of the NACE MR-0175 in a historical perspective alongside research advancements in physical metallurgy and sulfide stress cracking.
sulfide stress cracking
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!
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 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.
This article describes the results of a recent NACE MR0175/ ISO 15156 ballot that imposes stringent maximum allowable stress values.
