The alloys (used in chem/process industries) are usually in the solution annealed condition & must be fast cooled from the annealing temperature to prevent the precipitation of third phases such as sigma chi nitrides & alpha prime. This paper describes a reactivation test to detect alpha prime - used with 22%Cr and 25% Cr alloys. Case studies.
Corrosion is a major cause of structural deterioration in the marine/offshore industry. FOr that reason, reliability assessment and maintenance planning of these structures are crucial. In the current work a combination multi-phase phenomenological and mechanistic model for pitting corrosion is tested using Bayesian network (BN) approach.
