The use of ACPD technique in assessing cracking propagation and KISSCC of high strength OCTG materials in sour media Conference Paper uri icon


  • 1997 by NACE International. This paper describes the use of the alternate current potential drop as a method for measuring crack growth continuously throughout testing time, in double cantilever beam (DCB) specimens used for assessing the threshold stress concentration for sulfide stress corrosion cracking or KISSCC. This methodology was used to asses the sulfide stress corrosion cracking (SSCC) susceptibility in different oil country tubular products (OCTG) grade steels in several conditions.
