Probabilistic analysis of corroded pipeline under localizedcorrosion defects based on the intelligent inspection tool

Zelmati Djamel, BOULEDROUA Omar, HAFSI Zahreddine, Milos B. Djukic  (2020)

A methodology is developed in this paper to estimate the time-dependent reliability of a pipeline in Algeria, which is in exploitation from 1981 and with internal and external localized corrosiondefects detected in 2009. A probabilistic approach was applied to a pipeline made of API 5L X60steel for the long-distance transportation of natural gas (55 km), which crossing several geographical reliefs in different country areas. The analysis was carried out by taking into consideration the potential stochastic variables altering drastically the reliability of the pipeline, i.e.,dimensions of the localized corrosion defects, their locations, and distribution, and the corrosionrate. The correlations between the pipeline spatial corrosion defects distribution and their dimensions, obtained by using an intelligent inspection tool are used to analyze the actual inservice corrosion attack rate and for enhancement of the accuracy of the reliability assessment.The failure scenario was considered as the moment when the pipeline operating pressure exceedsthe failure pressure defined analytically in accordance with different commonly used standards.The assessment of the reliability index of the corroded pipeline subjected to internal pressure andthe failure probability was done. The detailed reliability analysis is carried out by using thesecond order reliability method (SORM) for the basic random variables with different probabilistic density within a nonlinear limit state function. The latter is based on the limit analysis ofthe failure pressure model for different standards and the numerical analysis using the finiteelement method and ANSYS software. Voir les détails

Effect of Heat Treatment on the Structure, Wear and Corrosionof AISI L6 Tool Steel

Oualid GHELLOUDJ, Amel GHARBI, Djamel Zelmati, Khédidja BOUHAMLA, Chems Eddine RAMOUL, Djamel BERDJANE  (2021)

This work is a contribution in analyzing structure, tribological behavior and corrosion ofAISI L6 hardened tool steel. Structural characterization and tribological behavior of steel wereinvestigated using Optical Microscopy (OM), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), wear testing byfriction on a pin-on-disc Tribometer and corrosion by potentiodynamic polarization. Comparing tothe as-received steel, hardening has generated a fine martensitic microstructure causing a 1.5 timeshardness increase. Hardening has contributed to improvement of wear resistance as the coefficient offriction has decreased from 0.86 to 0.67μ. An increase in corrosion resistance was observed afterhardening treatment.

Microstructural and Mechanical Properties of Welding and Thermal Spraying Coatings on Ductile Cast Iron

A.KELLAI, S.KAHLA, S.DEHIMI, B.Babes  (2021)

The subject of this work is to evaluate the influence and adhesion degree of different coating layers deposited on a ductile cast iron substrate by two different methods, thermal spraying and welding with and without use of an interlayer. Microstructures of different zones and interfaces of coated specimens are investigated using optical microscope and scanning electron microscope SEM. Also, the mechanical behavior was evaluated by tensile test. It is found that when stainless steel thermal spraying coating onto the ductile cast iron substrate, the use of the nickel-based interlayer Ni allowed us to mitigate the disadvantages of cracking at the interface. This is due to the mechanical effect of nickel plasticity. In the case of coating by welding, the use of nickel-based buttering ENi-CI allowed us to reduce the diffusion of graphite to stainless steel, resulting in a reduction in the formation of harder alloy carbides. Finally, the mechanicals tests in particular the tensile test shows that the coating by welding is effective but causes a structural hardening; on the other hand the coating realized by thermal spraying does not really present sufficient adhesion.

In this work, a problem of fracture and crack resistance is studied, the 2000 aluminum alloy series available in market is chosen, in this context of fracture mechanics the structural durability and integrity of materials is investigated. Couple techniques are used, an experimental characterization assisted by the digital image correlation technique and finite elements based numerical simulations, the aim is to study the mechanical behavior in presence of cracks and determine the fracture toughness. Making use of theoretical notions, analytical formulas, experimental tests coupled by the recent digital image correlation technique and numerical simulations constitute an efficient protocol to characterize materials to resist against cracks.

Caractérisation et modélisation numérique d’un composite époxy/Alfa.

Mémoire de Master

Nowdays, natural fiber composites are increasingly getting great interest on an industrial scale. This undeniable success is linked to the intrinsic properties of natural fibers reinforcements and to their ecological character. Our study consists in characterizing the mechanical properties in tensile, bending and ultrasonic as well as morphological characterization by optical and scanning electron microscopy in order to evaluate their aptitude to replace synthetic fiber composites. The material to be characterized is composed of an epoxy matrix reinforced with 20% in weight Alfa short fibers. Numerical modeling using the finite element method allowed us to predict the Young's modulus of our randomly reinforced biocomposites. The ANSYS modeling software was used to generate the 3D representative elementary volume and to calculate the Young's modulus of the composite. The experimental results recorded are close to those obtained by numerical modeling. The latter remains therefore the goal to reach. Voir les détails

As part of this project of memory we propose by this work a study on the microstructural and mechanical behavior of a stainless steel Lean Duplex LDSS 2101 during heat treatments realized in two stages: a treatment of dissolution at a temperature of 1050 ° C for one hour then water quenching, followed by an aging treatment at 720 ° C at different holding times (T = 10min, 60min, 10h, 24h, 120h, 240h) followed by quenching to water.The different samples are metallurgically characterized by optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). XRD analysis was used to identify the phases and precipitates formed during the treatments. Thermal treatments have significantly affected the phase equilibrium of stainless steel, caused by nitrides and carbides precipitation phenomena.Micromechanical characterization was performed by nano-indentation tests for the measurement of hardness and Young's modulus for each phase for the different samples.

Influence de l’énergie de soudage sur la microstructure et la résistance à la corrosion de l’acier inoxydable Lean duplex UNS S32101

Mémoire de Master

Duplex stainless steels are widely used in industry, because their two-phase structure with equivalent fractions in austenite and ferrite gives them very interesting mechanical properties and high resistance to different types of corrosion. However, the use of these steels is limited by their sensitivity to the formation of hazardous intermetallic phases with adverse effects on hardness and corrosion resistance. It is a weakening of the material that is visible under certain welding conditions. The subject deals with the study of a welding process applied Lean duplex stainless steel, LDX 2101 to a nickel-reduced stainless steel and aims to show the influence of the experimental parameters (03 energies) on the microstructural and stress corrosion resistance properties ( CSC) of the weld joint Voir les détails

In this paper, the effect of varying the number of layers for a fixed total thickness is investigated. In order to conserve the integrity and the safety of a multilayers composite structure, the search of the optimal number of layers in the cross section, induced the low stress-strain field intensity, is strongly recommended. Meanwhile, this study aims to show how the mechanical response of a multilayers composite plate loaded on a compression in the axial direction, changes when the number of layers increases from for a fixed total thickness.
