Dynamic impact response and corrosion behavior of coarse- and ultrafine-grained AISI 321 austenitic stainless steel
The excellent corrosion-resistance of metastable AISI 321 austenitic stainless steel makes it a choice material in the fabrication of nuclear and chemical plants, pressure vessels, automobile and aircraft components, etc. ...
Enhancing the corrosion resistance of API 5L X70 pipeline steel through thermomechanically controlled processing
Pipelines are widely used for transportation of oil and gas because they can carry large volume of these products at lower cost compared to rail cars and trucks. However, they are prone to environmentally assisted degradation. ...
The Microstructure and Properties of Niobium-doped Diamond-like Carbon Thin films
Doping diamond-like carbon (DLC) thin films with metals is an excellent way to reduce stresses in DLC films and improve their adhesion to artificial hip joint biomaterials. This improvement would translate to improving the ...
Microstructure Optimization to Prevent Hydrogen-Induced Cracking of API X70 Pipeline Steels in Sour Environments
These days, by increasing the demand for oil and gas resources, the failure of pipeline steels has become one of the crucial topics in the oil and gas transportation industry. The failure of pipeline steels is divided into ...
