Corrosion Resistant Alloys for Oil and Gas Production: Guidance on General Requirements and Test Methods for H2S Service, Volume 69, proposes test methods for assessing the environmental cracking resistance of Corrosion Resistant Alloys (CRAs) and provides a standard methodology for establishing the environmental cracking resistance of CRAs in H2S service. This revised volume discusses changes to the procedure for stress loading Bent Beam specimens, C-ring specimens, ISO 15156/NACE MR0175, and associated corrigenda.
- Includes procedures and background knowledge on H2S cracking tests
- Presents a discussion of H2S related cracking in corrosion resistant alloys
- Proposes test methods for assessing the environmental cracking resistance of CRAs
- Provides extensive background information relating to the use of CRAs in oil and gas production
- Includes a more accurate formula for calculating the strain to be applied for loading four point bend or "C" ring samples prior to testing
