Transit damage and hot rolled steel

  • Barry Dillon
Features Case Histories


The investigation of alleged corrosion damage to hot rolled steel during transit requires metallurgical, chemical, and corrosion knowledge. Familiarity with non-destructive techniques and sampling procedures are of assistance. A complete record of shipment history is also required, including the purchasing specifications and observations and photographs taken during surveys enroute. A frequent conclusion of such investigations is that the alleged corrosion is of no significance or did not occur during the voyage.
