Description

Corrosion Resistant Alloys for Oil and Gas Production: Guidance on General Requirements and Test Methods for H2S Service, Volume 69 proposes test methods for assessing the environmental cracking resistance of Corrosion Resistant Alloys (CRAs) and provides a standard methodology for establishing the environmental cracking resistance of CRAs in H2S service. This revised volume discusses changes to the procedure for stress loading Bent Beam specimens, C-ring specimens, ISO 15156/NACE MR0175, and associated corrigenda.

Key Features

  • Includes procedures and background knowledge on H2S cracking tests
  • Presents a discussion of H2S related cracking in corrosion resistant alloys
  • Proposes test methods for assessing the environmental cracking resistance of CRAs
  • Provides extensive background information relating to the use of CRAs in oil and gas production
  • Includes a more accurate formula for calculating the strain to be applied for loading four point bend or "C" ring samples prior to testing

Readership

Corrosion engineers, material scientists, researchers in the oil and gas industry
