This presentation was given as part of the special Materials in Society session "Materials for Infrastructure: Building Bridges in the Global Community," held on Wednesday, March 12 at the TMS 2008 Annual Meeting & Exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The following is the abstract of the presentation:
The demand on materials for transporting oil, natural gas, and other fluids, including hydrogen, ethanol, etc. is severe in terms of material strength, corrosion resistance, durability and maintainability. Lower temperatures and higher pressures are key factors in enhancing this demand on materials. The status and potential for performance ability of current materials available for transporting the fluids over long distances shall be reviewed. The research and development efforts for new ferrous and non-ferrous materials, including coating options, will be discussed. The strength and corrosion performance challenges will be highlighted.
The recording is made possible through support from AIME.
