Estimating welded pipeline residual life on the basis of hydrogen degradation of the metal
- 22 Downloads
Test results are given for specimens of steel 20 cut from industrial pipelines that had been operated for 16 or 24 years at a deposit in West Siberia subject to the action of a medium containing hydrogen sulfide. It is shown that there is a change in the degradation coefficients characterizing the cracking resistance distribution in the tube wall thickness.
