SINTEF (a Norwegian research Co.) made studies of the sensitivity to hydrogen embrittlement (HE) of super 13Cr martensitic stainless steels. These tests are summarised in this paper. Both slow strain rate (SSR), 4-point-bend and fracture mechanics testing have been conducted. The effect of temperature, cathodic protection (CP), applied potential, strain rate and H2S were investigated.
Establishes guidelines to prevent most forms of environmental cracking of weldments in carbon steel refinery equipment and piping. Welding processes covered by this standard include shielded metal arc welding (SMAW); gas metal arc welding (GMAW), including flux-core arc welding (FCAW); gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW); and submerged arc welding (SAW). Almost all types of weld configurations are included. The standard also addresses corrosive environments, hardness, and total stress in relation to in-service cracking of carbon steel welds. PRINTED HARD COPIES REQUIRE A MINIMUM OF 7-10 DAYS FOR PROCESSING BEFORE SHIPPING.
