Corrosion Fatigue Behaviour of Welded Risers and Corrosion Fatigue Crack-Growth Behavior of HY-130 Steel and Weldments J. Pressure Vessel Technol (November,1981) A Comparison of the Near-Threshold Corrosion Fatigue Crack Propagation Rates in Mil S-24645 HSLA Steel and Its Weld Metal
By now, the influences of mechanical, environmental, and metallurgical variables on environmentally assisted cracking (i.e., SCC and corrosion fatigue crack growth [FCG]) in titanium alloys have been studied in some detail.2-5 However, there has been no common agreement concerning the mechanism of corrosion crack growth despite the wide scope
Corrosion Fatigue of Welded Joints on Marine Offshore May 27, 2016 · Corrosion fatigue is a major concern when the integrity and safety of any offshore structure is concerned. These structures, as well as ships, are subjected to the cyclic stress produced by waves and tidal motion. While the effect of fatigue, caused by cyclic loads, is fairly well understood, the combined damaging effect of fatigue and corrosion can have unexpected consequences and
Corrosion fatigue crack growth mechanisms in offshore title = "Corrosion fatigue crack growth mechanisms in offshore monopile steel weldments", abstract = "Offshore structures are generally fabricated of welded joints, which are considered as potential spots for crack initiation owing to the degree of stress concentrations imposed by the weld geometry and the effects of residual stresses introduced by welding processes.
Considering the orientation of the specimens with respect to the weld region shown in Fig. 2, the seawater test results suggest that the corrosion-fatigue crack growth rate is lower when the crack propagates from the outside surface towards the inner surface of the monopiles. In other words, in order to estimate the lifetime of monopiles in the presence of macro cracks, more conservative predictions
Effect of Acidizing Treatments on the Fatigue Crack Growth This paper describes the results of fatigue crack growth rate (FCGR) tests on as-welded (i.e. unstrained) pipe. FCGR tests were conducted at room temperature (RT) in three different acid conditions:fresh acid with corrosion inhibitor, spent acid with corrosion inhibitor and spent acid without corrosion
Effect of Environmental Factors on Corrosion Fatigue Corrosion fatigue performance of welded duplex 2507 riser material environments containing high partial pressures of carbon dioxide (100200 bar) and limited quantity of hydrogen sulfide (00.12 bar) is presented in this paper. da/dN vs K at different frequencies as a
Fatigue assessment where stable micro-crack growth occurs can be obtained based on the stress-life (S-N) curves-based approaches or the fracture mechanics approach. The S-N curve data are obtained from experiments and are typically used to assess non-planar aws, e.g., corrosion, while the fracture
Finite Element Analysis of Fatigue in Offshore Pipelines Fatigue assessment where stable micro-crack growth occurs can be obtained based on the stress-life (S-N) curves-based approaches or the fracture mechanics approach. The S-N curve data are obtained from experiments and are typically used to assess non-planar aws, e.g., corrosion, while the fracture
Fracture Mechanics Approach for the Maintenance Of OffshoreOct 07, 2020 · Several studies have shown that pipelines fail as a result of Welding, Fatigue Crack Growth, Corrosion Fatigue, Stress Corrosion Cracking, and Erosion due to fluid flow. PROCEED NOW TO DOWNLOAD PAGE TABLE OF CONTENTS
The extent of crack growth was monitored using either electrical potential drop or detailed metallographic examinations at two laboratories. The resulting crack growth rates from both labs are consistent with a superposition model based on a summation of fatigue (Paris Law) and static (SCC) crack growth rates.
Review of corrosion fatigue in offshore structures Aug 01, 2016 · Corrosion fatigue crack growth is primarily controlled by dissolution of metal at the crack tip and hydrogen embrittlement . At high dissolution rates, it was mentioned that the mechanism of crack blunting is likely to occur, particularly at higher stress intensity factor ranges accompanied by a larger plastic zone size .

Role of Sour Environments on the Corrosion Fatigue Growth Corrosion fatigue of C-Mn steels in sour environments is a concern in various offshore applications, particularly for flow-lines and risers. The commonly accepted mechanism of the enhanced fatigue crack growth rate (FCGR) behavior in these environments is hydrogen embrittlement.Review Copy - University of Strathclydecrack growth rates were influenced by mean stresses, materials microstructure accompanied by welding procedure and environment. Crack growth results showed good agreement when compared with those obtained from other steels used for offshore structures. Keywords:Crack growth rates, free-corrosion; HAZ; weld; mean stress.
