STEELS FOR CRYOGENIC SERVICE

The United States and the Soviet Union have undertaken a series of cooperative research efforts including an analysis of testing methods for evaluation of the properties of welded joints for Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) service. Armco Steel Corporation conducted an evaluation of three steels using conventional qualification tests and a variety of fracture toughness tests. Qualification testing included a comparison of the composition, strength and Charpy V-notch toughness of two ferritic nickel steels developed in the U.S. to those of an Fe-Cr-Mn austenitic stainless steel developed in the USSR. Fracture toughness testing included a variety of static and dynamic testing methods to evaluate the notch toughness of base plate and weldments at cryogenic temperatures.
