Iron oxides and rust (hydrated iron oxides) in tribology. D. Godfrey. Lubric. Engng., February 1999, 55(2), 33--37.
Five samples of anhydrous iron oxides and ten hydrated iron oxides, which are described as rusts, are evaluated in tribological studies. Typical properties of the fifteen test materials are tabulated. The main properties of interest are composition, formula, crystal structure, magnetic properties, c...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Using PE-modified slip liners to rehab gas distribution pipes. C.H. Popelar et al. Pipeline Gas J., December 1997, 224(12), 40--44.
Trenchless technology using a modified slip lining process is described for rehabilitating steel and cast iron pipes with polyethylene liners. Before insertion the PE-liner is reduced in diameter using reduction rollers as in the Rolldown, Tite Liner, and UltraPipe procedures, or by using a reductio...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Effect of heat stable salts on MDEA solution corrosivity. Part 2. P.C. Rooney, M.S. DuPart and T.R. Bacon. Hydrocarbon Processing, April 1997, 76(4), 65--71.
The effect of various heat stable salts on the corrosivity of methyldiethanolamine (MDEA) solutions is described. Corrosion coupons of carbon steel and stainless steel are exposed at 180 and 250 C. The experimental procedure is described and illustrated and an equation is given for calculating the c...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Buckling of stiffened steel plates---a parametric study. G.Y. Grondin, A.E. Elwi and J.J.R. Cheng. J. Construct. Steel Res., May 1999, 50(2), 151--175.
A finite element model was used to investigate the stability of plates stiffened with two-shape stiffeners. Four series of stiffened plate panels were modelled using a finite strain four-mode shell element. The model was validated using the results of tests on full-size stiffened plate specimens and...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
SCF formulae for fatigue design of K-connections between square hollow sections. A.M. van Wingerde, J.A. Packer and J. Wardenier. J. Construct. Steel Res., July--September 1997, 43(1--3), 87--118.
Analogous fatigue design rules for K-connections are presented, along with the underlying research. The results are verified by comparison with test results. At a later stage, the design formulae may be simplified in order to include the method in design guides. The results of this study are intende...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Criteria for the fatigue assessment of hollow structural section connections. A.M. van Wingerde, J.A. Packer and J. Wardenier. J. Construct. Steel Res., 1995, 35(1), 71--115.
Consideration is given to fatigue design criteria for connections between hollow structural sections, based on knowledge gained from an extensive study on the fatigue behaviour of 90 degrees F and X-connections made of square hollow sections. The various fatigue assessment methods available are disc...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Guidelines to control MIC in new buried steel pipeline construction. L. Manion. Pipeline Gas J., October 1998, 225(10), 30--32.
Various types of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) of steel pipelines are discussed. The micro-organisms are single cell plants that survive under adverse conditions and when active they multiply with incredible speed. Some types of sulphate reducing bacteria remove steel at a penetration...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Rectification process. P.J. Fisher. G.J. Lyons and D.T. Brown. Offshore Engng. Handbook Series, publ'd 1995, Bentham Press, Dilke House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7JN, approx. 330 pages (ISBN 1-874612-23-4). Chapter 7, 25 pages.
The re-assessment is discussed of fixed steel platforms with respect to the structural aspects for the jacket and foundation. Consideration is given to procedures for re-assessment analyses including fatigue, life extension and strength case studies. Damage and repairs are also covered as are emergi...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Recommended fracture toughness for ship hull steel and weld. J.D.G. Sumpter and A.J. Caudrey. Marine Structures, 1995, 8(4), 345--357.
Rather than the use of empirical derivation, more quantitative guidelines based on dynamic fracture mechanics testing is suggested. A miniumum toughness of 125 MPam1/2 at 0 degrees C and a loading rate of 104 MPam1/2/s is proposed, which can be translated to a Charpy requirement of FATT below 0 degr...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Avoid operating problems in air-cooled heat exchangers. R. Mukherjee. Hydrocarbon Processing, March 1997, 76(3), 69--76.
Guidelines are given for troubleshooting and performance evaluations of air-cooled heat exchangers with horizontal, A-frame, or vertical configurations. Tube bundles commonly consist of four to six rows of carbon steel or stainless steel tubes. Aluminium fins are invariably used because of favourabl...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
