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...
This thesis presents a thorough examination of the corrosion and fouling behaviour of crude oil at refining conditions on industrially applicable heat transfer surfaces. The depletion of light sweet crude oil reserves means that the processing of ever heavier and more sour crude oils is...
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...
The present research has been done with the intent of evaluating the corrosion resistance and cracking susceptibility of some commercial candidate alloys that can be potentially used in Gen-IV supercritical water reactor (SCWR). The mechanism of the crack initiation in austenitic alloys exposed...
As the Supercritical Water-cooled Reactor (SCWR) shows a promising future, the corrosion behavior of candidate materials has attracted great interest. In this study, experimental investigation was conducted to evaluate the corrosion behavior of the ferritic-martensitic steels designed for the use...
