  • Effect of environmental factors on the resistance to SSCC of the base material and welded joints of low and very low carbon steels for oil and gas transmission pipelines


The present research aims to study some aspects of the phenomenon of SSCC and HIC in steels for oil and gas transmission pipelines, which are not yet well understood. In particular, the following problems are considered: (i) the effect of environmental factors on resistance to HIC and SSCC; (ii) the effect of HAZ hardness on subcritical crack growth in SSCC; (iii) the resistance to HIC and SSCC of modern industrially produced ULC steels.
