20Cr-32Ni-1Nb stainless steel alloys are commonly used in hydrogen reformer manifolds for transporting hot hydrogen by-products at 750-950 celcius. After long periods of exposure, embrittling secondary carbides and intermetallic phases can precipitate at the grain boundaries which can drastically...
It has become common for steel fabricators to find torsional loads included in the design documents of many industrial steel structures. These loads arise in wide-flange beam-to-column moment connections when the beam is subject to weak axis bending, which in turn, is transferred to the column as...

Coped beams are susceptible to fatigue cracking in the web at the cope radius when subjected to tension in the coped region. Use of an adhesively bonded composite patch over the crack can reduce the stress concentration and delay further crack growth. This report contains the results of a...
Casing pipes used in sour service are prone to two forms of failure: hydrogen induced cracking (HIC) and sulfide stress cracking (SSC). The objective of this thesis is to investigate the resistance of L80 ERW and Seamless steel pipe, with five different chemical compositions, to both HIC and SSC....
This thesis presents work performed to model and measure the effect of run-out table cooling on a thick walled X70 steel. During run-out table cooling, the steel undergoes several phase transformations that will affect its microstructure, and thus, its mechanical properties. To predict the steel...
High-performance steel bars manufactured to conform to ASTM A1035-11 have different metallurgy and microstructure than conventional reinforcing steel. These changes result in an effective yield strength significantly higher than conventional ASTM A615 steel while also being less susceptible to...
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...
Traditionally in pipeline steels and welds, ultrasonic testing (UT) has been used for crack and/or flaw detection. The work presented in this Thesis explores the use of this technique to characterize the microstructure of pipe steels. Ultrasonic velocity calculations, for shear and longitudinal...
Ductile steel plate shear walls are an established lateral load resisting system. Past research indicates that cold-rolled infill panels less than 1 mm in thickness present one solution to an overstrength problem arising from selecting an infill panel thickness based on ease of welding and...
