ENIVORNMENTALLY ASSISTED FRACTURING: RESEARCH AND STANDARDS.
The relation between research and standardization is examined as it applies to the environmentally assisted fracturing processes, particularly in light of progress which has been made in some of the areas of purely mechanical fractures and, to a lesser extent, areas of purely chemical corrosion. An arbitrary list is made of 20 possible chemical and mechanical failure processes and includes general and pitting corrosion, crevice and intergranular corrosion, fatigue cracking, stress rupture, cavitation and corrosion fatigue. The lessons learned in the development of control measures for purely mechanical fracturing, especially brittle fracture, give useful guidance for the strategy for development of control plans for environmentally assisted fracturing processes, especially stress corrosion cracking, for which the control measures lag far behind those for purely mechanical fracturing.
