One of the main risks of failure for stainless steels is from chloride stress corrosion cracking. Here, the combination of an applied stress and simultaneous corrosion can result in sudden and catastrophic failure, at operating loads well below the nominal strength of the alloy. Duplex stainless steels are resistant to stress corrosion cracking, due to the presence of ferrite in their mixed ...

Analysis of total chloride content in concrete - …

It is vital to investigate empirically the relationship between total chloride and chloride contents in ingredients in order to precisely define the limits of chloride content in concrete mix ingredients. Mix design that has the lowest w/c ratio is preferable as far as the chloride content is concerned. Finally, water chloride content could be higher than ASTM specified limits with mix designs that have low …

The susceptibility to CLSCC is usually assessed on the basis of chloride content, pH and temperature. In our view there are additional factors that should be taken into account when assessing the susceptibility with both new and existing pipework or vessels that have accumulated significant service. These include: • Operation involves high temperature excursions. Susceptibility should be ...
