sulfide stress cracking behavior of grade c
Jul 01, 2015 · This study examined the effects of alloying elements (C, Mo) on hydrogen-induced cracking (HIC) and sulfide stress cracking (SSC) behaviors of A516-65 grade pressure vessel steel in sour environments. A study on the mechanism of stress corrosion cracking of The use of DSS has been restricted in some cases because of stress corrosion cracking (SCC), which can initiate and grow in either the ferrite or austenite phase depending on the environment. Thorough understanding of SCC mechanisms of DSS in chloride- and hydrogen sulfide-containing solutions has been useful for material selection in many
Considering the relationship between the applied stress and corrosion behaviors of steels in sour environments , the reason for the lowest SSC resistance of Steel C could be closely related to the surface properties. Based on the observations of the fracture surface of Steel C, it appears that pit-like corrosion on the surface acting as a stress intensifier under the applied stress conditions was connected to the Observations on the use of the double cantilever beam Oct 01, 1995 · Seven trial heats that were quenched and tempered into the C-110 strength range were tested for sulfide-stress-corrosion cracking (SSCC) resistance with three popular test procedures:the NACE tension, the Shell bent-beam, and the double-cantilever-beam (DCB) methods. Sulfide Stress Corrosion Cracking in Low-Alloy Steel Cracking of high-strength low-alloy steels due to hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a form of hydrogen embrittlement. The hydrogen sulfide reacts with the steel, forming FeS and atomic hydrogen, some of which will enter the steel and cause brittle failure (Ref. 1). Recently, it was shown that hydrogen is the causal factor in the SSC cracking of low-alloy steels and
A medium-carbon CrMoV martensitic steel was thermally processed by quenching (Q) at 890 °C and tempering (T) at increasing temperatures from 650 °C to 720 °C and the effect of tempering temperature, T t, on sulfide stress cracking (SSC) behaviors was estimated mainly via double cantilever beam (DCB) and electrochemical hydrogen permeation (EHP) tests and microstructure characterization. Sulfide Stress Cracking of Steels For API Grade N-80 An experimental C-Mn-Mo-V low alloy steel capable of meeting API 5A Grade N-80 requirements was developed for use in sulfide wells. The laboratory results obtained suggest that the sulfide stress cracking resistance of this new steel is superior to that of the normalized and tempered C sulfide stress cracking Oilfield GlossarySulfide stress cracking is also called hydrogen sulfide cracking, sulfide cracking, sulfide corrosion cracking and sulfide stress-corrosion cracking. The variation of the name is due to the lack of agreement in the mechanism of failure. Some researchers consider sulfide-stress cracking a type of stress-corrosion cracking, while others consider it a type of hydrogen embrittlement.
Basics of Sulfide Stress Cracking (SSC) and Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) SSC and SCC are cracking processes that develop in the presence of water, corrosion and surface tensile stress. It is a progressive type of failure that produces cracking at stress levels that are well below the materials tensile strength. The break or fracture
