STP 1401 is the most comprehensive volume to be published on this topic within the past ten years. It features the latest international developments on the generation of relevant materials and properties data based on laboratory tests, and methodologies for the evaluation and assessment of environmental assisted cracking in equipment and structures exposed to corrosive service environments.
27 peer-reviewed papers, written by leading scientists and experts worldwide, discuss:
Uses of electrochemical, surface analysis, slow strain rate, and fracture mechanics techniques.
Correlation between laboratory and in-service cracking resistance.
State-of-the art developments in fitness-for-service and risk assessment methodologies.
Monitoring of equipment and structures for environmentally assisted cracking.
Uses of corrosion models to understand mechanisms and predict service life of equipment.
Environmentally Assisted Cracking: Predictive Methods for Risk Asessment and Evaulation of Materials, Equipment, and Structures
