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...
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...
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...
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...
Mechanical, tribological and corrosion properties of metallic materials are of significance to their industrial applications and have been studied for long time. Efforts are continuously made to correlate these properties to more fundamental parameters in order to effectively improve the...
The most common detrimental processes that lead to reduction in durability in reinforced concrete elements are shrinkage, sulphate attack and chloride attack. Shrinkage is a dimensional instability chiefly caused by a loss of moisture in the hydrating cement paste. Soluble sulphate ions take part...
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...
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...
An evaluation of the resistance of two different X70 pipeline steels to hydrogen-induced cracking in severe (pH 2.7 and 1 atm H2S) and intermediate (pH 5.5 and 1 atm H2S) sour service conditions was undertaken. The two steels used in this work, X70-X and X70-B, were selected based on their...
