Abstract
There is little knowledge on the effect of stress on corrosion rate of mild steel and as to how the combined effect of stress and corrosion affects the mechanical properties of mild steel. This paper presents a comprehensive experiment to provide evidence of the effect of stress on corrosion progress and mechanical properties of corroded steel. Test specimens, both stressed and non-stressed, are immersed in hydrochloride acid with acidity ranging from 0.00001 Molar to 3 Molar. Cause and effect relations among stress, corrosion and mechanical properties of corroded steel are investigated and analysed quantitatively at both macrostructural and microstructural levels. It is found in the paper that the stress can accelerate the corrosion progress and contribute to the intergranular corrosion and intergranular stress corrosion cracking of steel. Consequently, stress can expedite the reduction of mechanical properties of corroded steel, especially the ultimate strength and failure strain. The significance of this paper is that it not only proves the effect of stress on corrosion and mechanical properties of corroded steel but also provides a more accurate understanding of cause-effect relationships among stress, corrosion and mechanical properties of corroded steel.

Abstract null null This paper reports confirmation of the effect of different levels of tensile stress caused by quasi-static loading on corrosion growth and the mechanical properties of corroded steel. Plastic stressed, elastic stressed and non-stressed specimens have been immersed into hydrochloride acid with acidity ranging from 0.00001 to 1 Molar. Corrosion behaviours of the test specimens are measured after 7, 14 and 28 days. The mechanical properties of steel are then measured at three gri...

Abstract In this paper, the combined effect of corrosion and fatigue on the fatigue strength of steel connection plates is thoroughly investigated through a comprehensive experimental program. A model for fatigue strength degradation as a function of corrosion rate is developed. The mechanism of fatigue strength degradation is also examined to gain a insightful understanding of fatigue strength degradation under simultaneous corrosion and fatigue environments. It is found in the paper that the s...

Abstract The super duplex stainless steel (SDSS) cladded low carbon steel (LCS) substrates manufactured via laser powder bed fusion technique (LPBF) have been recently developed to enhance the service life of the structural components in highly corrosive environments. As-printed (AP) SDSS clads showed predominantly δ-ferrite matrix with allotriomorphic austenite precipitating at the ferrite grain boundaries. Increasing scan speeds resulted in decreasing austenite phase fraction with dominant wid...

Abstract The present work investigates the possibility of using random field techniques in modelling the mechanical behaviour of corroded thick steel plate specimens. The nonlinear Finite Element method, employing the explicit dynamic solver, is used to analyse the mechanical properties of typical specimens. A material model considering full nonlinearity is used to evaluate the stress-strain response. The influence of major governing parameters of both specimen dimensions and random field is inv...

This study aims to improve the corrosion resistance of the low carbon steel by cladding it with super duplex stainless steel using laser powder bed fusion process. Critical process parameters such as laser power, laser scan speed, hatch spacing, and powder layer thickness were optimized to achieve the best possible metallurgical bonding between the clad and the substrate. The evaporative losses experienced during the laser melting process resulted in clad layers with lower chromium content (12–2...

Abstract The objective of this work is to explore the possibility of corrosion degradation modelling of thin steel plate specimens with the use of random field approach. The mechanical properties are obtained via the nonlinear Finite Element Analysis with the use of an explicit dynamic solver. The fully nonlinear material model is adopted to obtain the proper stress-strain response. Sensitivity analysis considering the main statistical descriptors of the random field is performed. The results of...
