A study of passivity and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) of alloy 800 in simulated steam generator crevice solution containing thiosulfate and sulphide speciesDownload
The passivity and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) behavior of Alloy 800 was studied in test solution containing thiosulfate and sulphide species. Cyclic polarization experiments in thiosulfate containing solutions indicated that with an increase in the concentration of thiosulfate, both the...
Novel anode catalysts have been developed for sour natural gas solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) applications. Sour natural gas comprises light hydrocarbons, and typically also contains H2S. An alternative fuel SOFC that operates directly on sour natural gas would reduce the overall cost of plant...
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...
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....
Micro-modeling and study of the impact of microstructure on the performance of solid oxide fuel cell electrodesDownload
As the demand for green energy and fuel cells grows, more attention is drawn towards Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs). Random and complex structure of composite electrodes and underlying electrochemical process has not been completely unveiled yet and further study is required to acquire more...
In order to keep the performance of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) at intermediate operating temperature range (500℃ - 700℃), thin and fully dense yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) electrolytes are desired to provide shorter oxygen ion transport distance and prevent fuel crossover and internal...
Promoting Influence of Doping Indium into BaCe0.5Zr0.3Y0.2O3- δ on the Chemical Stability, Sinterability and Electrical PropertiesDownload
The application of BaCe1-x-yZrxYyO3-δ series solid proton conductors in SOFCs is restricted by the trade-off among the chemical stability, sinterability and electrical conductivity under SOFCs operating conditions. The present research attempted to enhance the chemical stability, sinterability...
