The role of stress is generally considered or the stress intensity factor in case of precracked samples as an effect with the passage of time in a given system. There is a threshold stress value below which corrosion does not occur even for long test duration. The threshold stress is not just a function of … Continue reading How stress influences Stress corrosion cracking

Inconel 718 is a widely used superalloy that is relatively economical however has good mechanical characteristics. Inconel 718 is heat processed at different temperatures. The grain sizes were measured on both samples by using Light Optical Microscope. The mechanical test results show the damage of tensile strength and hardness while enhancement of creep life with … Continue reading Effect of grain size on mechanical properties of Inconel 718

Inconel 718 is one of the most essential super alloys and is widely used in aerospace and aviation for its high mechanical strength, good resistance to fatigue and creep, supreme corrosion resistance and potential to serve regularly at the high temperatures. In this post, we evaluate the pitting corrosion resistance potential of Inconel 718 before … Continue reading Pitting potential of Inconel 718 in chloride base aqueous solutions

Today a large range of materials are used in broad spectrum of aggressive chemicals. As chemicals and their properties vary on a large level, it is tough to select a suitable material for a specific chemical application. Commonly used materials in chemical applications are: 316 stainless steel- An alloy of iron, carbon, nickel and chromium, … Continue reading Best alloys for use in chemical media

Duplex Stainless Steel- Austenitic Ferritic stainless steels were initially made for use in the paper plants to prevent corrosion problems due to chloride bearing cooling water and other aggressive chemical process fluids. Containing high concentration of chromium, nitrogen, and molybdenum, these steel materials provide supreme resistance to localized and uniform corrosion. Their duplex structure introduces … Continue reading Which alloys can be used in gas extraction and purification plants?
