The present research was conducted with the intent of evaluating the degradation of OCTG (Oil Country Tubular Goods) steel used in SAGD (Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage) applications, and developing a promising surface modification method and a novel composite coating using a technique that will...
Investigation of Surface Crack Growth Behaviour Under Variable Pressure Fluctuations in Near-Neutral pH EnvironmentsDownload
The goal of this investigation was to study the corrosion fatigue behaviour and mechanisms of surface cracks, semi-elliptical in shape, when exposed to near-neutral pH environments conducive to the environments experienced in the field. To better simulate field conditions, while avoiding the...
Severe localized corrosion was found throughout an aeration tank of a modular wastewater treatment plant. Specifically, pitting, crevice corrosion, galvanic corrosion, and intergranular corrosion (IGC) were observed on the 5000 and 6000 series aluminum alloys used in the tank’s construction. One...
Magnesium remarkably deserves considerable interest from industry especially transportation sector because of its high strength to weight ratio. However, poor wear resistance and low corrosion resistance of magnesium are barriers to extend use of its alloys. Yttrium is one of rare-earth elements...
Investigation of Highly Corrosion Resistant and Electrically Conductive Coatings on Metal Bipolar Plates Used in Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel CellDownload
There are apparent technical and economic advantages to replace carbon-based bipolar plates using metal bipolar plates (MBP) for applications in polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC). However, MBP suffers from corrosion in the acidic environment of PEMFC, and the subsequently formed...
