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...
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...
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...
Effects of Oxide Additions on the Corrosion Behaviour of Cr2O3 Based Ceramics in High Temperature Supercritical Water EnvironmentDownload
This investigation is aimed at developing ceramic materials applied in supercritical water, which is being considered as coolant for one of the next generation nuclear reactors. Cr2O3, a primary protective film on stainless steels, was found to be unstable in SCW due to the formation of soluble...
This thesis is focused on the studying the role that model sulfur-containing molecules have in corrosion reactions on relevant metallurgies. This was done by using a design of experiments where a number of sulfur-based compounds were reacted with various metallurgies. The 8 model sulfur compounds...
The Study of the Corrosion Behavior of Gas Nitriding Treated L80 Steel in Simulated Environment for the Slotted Liners of SAGDDownload
The oil sand in Alberta province is mainly extracted by Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) technique which employs the slotted liners as the primary sand screening system. However, the slotted liners made of L80 carbon steel suffer from severe corrosion and erosion problems in the downhole...
This study is part of a larger study designed to help a consortium of pipeline operators replace current (very expensive) approaches to managing stress corrosion cracking (SCC) concerns in near-neutral pH (NNPH) environments with mathematical models that predict SCC growth rates. This could...
Stainless steel is one of the most commonly used materials in most industries. Excellent corrosion resistance of stainless steel is due to the formation of an oxide film on the surface (passive film), which protects the material from continuous corrosion attacks. When subjected to an attack...
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...
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...
