Identification of the accumulation mechanism of major elements on pipe surface is essential to investigate the development of corrosion scales and co-occurrence of trace inorganic contaminants. In this study, corrosion scale samples were collected from old, corroded iron pipes made of different materials and exposed to different water qualities and operation conditions. Elemental composition of these scales was determined by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS). Cumulative occurrence analy...

A review of published literature on the corrosion of metal pipes reveals that current research on corrosion of full-size pipe sections in real soil conditions is highly limited, with almost no research reported on the corrosion effect on degradation of mechanical properties, and fracture toughness in particular, of cast iron pipes buried in real soil. This paper presents a new testing methodology for investigating the corrosion of cast iron pipes in real soil and evaluating its effect on the deg...

Abstract The exposure of mild steel to marine atmospheres gives rise to the formation of various corrosion products, mainly lepidocrocite, goethite, magnetite and akaganeite. In this study, Grazing Incidence X-Ray Diffraction, Micro-X-Ray Diffraction and Scanning Electron Microscopy/Micro-Raman are used to characterise rust layer surfaces and to identify the principal component rust phases and their morphology. The main conclusion reached is that lepidocrocite is preferentially located on the ou...

Tensile strength tests are performed on small scale corroded specimens, so as to derive their mechanical properties. The specimens were cut from a box girder that was initially corroded in real sea water conditions. As a result of the tensile tests the mechanical properties of the specimens are determined, namely modulus of elasticity, yield stress, tensile strength, resilience, fracture toughness and total uniform elongation. Regression equations are derived for the properties as a function of ...

Failures of (large diameter) cast iron trunk water mains can be catastrophic in the damage they can cause and it is therefore imperative to understand how cast iron deteriorates in order to help predict those areas of a water supply network which are at greatest risk of failure. Cast irons undergo a localized form of corrosion known as graphitic corrosion. Although a well reported phenomena, the mechanisms of graphitic corrosion are not fully understood. Scanning electron microscopy, in conjunct...

It is well known that corrosion is the predominant mechanism for the deterioration of cast iron pipes, leading to the reduction of pipe capacity and ultimate collapse of the pipes. In order to assess the remaining service life of corroded cast iron pipes, it is imperative to understand the mechanisms of corrosion over a long term and to develop models for pipe deterioration. Although many studies have been carried out to determine the corrosion behavior of cast iron, little research has been und...

Abstract A great deal of information is available on the atmospheric corrosion of mild steel in the short, mid and even long term, but studies of the structure and morphology of corrosion layers are less abundant and generally deal with those formed in just a few years. The present study assesses the structure and morphology of corrosion product layers formed on mild steel after 13 years of exposure in five Spanish atmospheres of different types: rural, urban, industrial and marine (mild and sev...

The effects of alloying elements and initial interlamellar spacing on tensile strength and the occurrence of delamination in cold-drawn hyper-eutectoid steel wires were investigated under equivalent drawing conditions. The initial interlamellar spacing showed little influence on the occurrence of delamination. The addition of Cr effectively increased attainable tensile strength, since the added Cr not only increased tensile strength but also delayed delamination. The addition of Ni also increase...

Criteria for rehabilitation priority are an important factor in planning the improvement of water supply systems. In this study, deteriorations of water pipes are discussed to evaluate structural stability of deteriorated cast iron transport and transmission pipes. For the purposes, safety factor is introduced and estimated by measuring tensile strength and analyzing stress caused by the internal-external loads working on buried pipe body. Prediction models of a residual tensile strength are pre...

Abstract Corrosion induced failure of buried ferrous pipelines causes significant economic losses to the world. Many of the existing buried water pipelines are made of ductile iron in most of the developed countries. Literature shows that the research on the corrosion-induced degradation assessments of ductile iron pipelines is limited and mostly deals with the physical deterioration i.e., loss of wall thickness determined by short-term research. This paper addresses this gap and presents a comp...

Abstract Considerable research reported in literature shows that corrosive soil degrades the bulk mechanical properties of buried cast iron pipes due to cracks and degradation of microstructure. The nanomechanical properties of the grains of cast iron pipes can also be affected by the corrosion before bulk mechanical properties. However, the influence of soil corrosivity on the nanomechanical properties at the granular level is remained unresolved to date. This paper addresses this gap and prese...

Abstract Steel pipes have been widely used in the water and petroleum industries where crack-like flaws have long been recognised as a major cause of their failures. This paper intends to develop a new method for determining the elasto-plastic J-integral of cracked pipes made of all types of steel. A solution to elasto-plastic J-integrals is derived for external longitudinal semi-elliptical surface cracks in pressurised steel pipes. A meshing technique is developed in the detailed three-dimensio...

Abstract Corrosion induced degradation of fracture toughness in buried cast iron pipes is a serious concern for structural integrity and smooth operation of buried pipes. External corrosion of pipes is fundamentally governed by the corrosivity of soil which may vary depending on the type of soil and its specific properties. While the corrosion assessments of pipes buried in soil can provide realistic behaviour, the investigations of pipe corrosion in simulated soil solutions are becoming popular...
