Corrosion Assessment -Environmentally-Assisted Degradation Mechanisms

Advanced assessment of corrosion and degradation mechanisms

Kinectrics' experienced team of corrosion scientists and metallurgical engineers can provide qualified support for the nuclear industry to improve system reliability and optimize plant performance. Our specialists offer expert services to assess:

Non-cracking environmentally-assisted degradation mechanisms:

  • Flow Accelerated Corrosion (FAC)
  • Corrosion
  • Fretting, Wear and Erosion
  • Creep

Environmentally-assisted cracking degradation mechanisms:

  • Fatigue Crack Growth (FCG) - Crack growth under cyclic loading
  • Corrosion Fatigue (CF) - Crack growth under cyclic loading, enhanced by environment
  • Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) - Crack growth under constrant stress intensity
  • Stress Corrosion Crack Initiation - Under constant load or, constant extension rate
