Effects of modifying trace components on petroleum pipeline corrosion resistance
- 47 Downloads
A study has been made on the effects of modifying additives on the corrosion resistance of low-alloy steel: rare-earth, alkaline-earth, and zirconium additives. Optimal concentrations have been determined for cerium, yttrium, calcium, barium, and zirconium in steel that provide good corrosion resistance. Models have been derived for engineering and forecasting purposes as regards the working life of welded petroleum pipelines.
