STRESS CORROSION AND HYDROGEN EMBRITTLEMENT OF LINE-PIPE STEEL IN UNDERGROUND ENVIRONMENTS

A survey covers known cases of the rupture failure of gas transmission pipelines due to stress corrosion cracking; the nature of environments known to cause stress corrosion cracking; the possibility of embrittlement due to hydrogen from sources such as corrosion or cathodic protection; the characteristics of stress corrosion cracking in line pipe; and possible methods of minimizing cracking in line pipe, such as inhibitive primers or shot peening of the pipe surface.
