The Role of Sulfur Oxidizing Bacteria on Corrosion of X65 Low Carbon Steels and its Mitigation Using Sodium Tungstate and Nickel Biocides

The Role of Sulfur Oxidizing Bacteria on Corrosion of X65 Low Carbon Steels and its Mitigation Using Sodium Tungstate and Nickel Biocides. ABSTRACT Metals in service often give a superficial impression of permanence, but all except gold are chemically unstable in air and air-saturated water at ambient temperatures and most are also unstable in air-free […]

Morphology Analysis of Lead Iodide- And Lead Acetate based Perovskite Layers for Solar Cell Application

Morphology Analysis of Lead Iodide- And Lead Acetate based Perovskite Layers for Solar Cell Application. ABSTRACT   Organolead trihalide perovskite solar cells have shown success as light absorbers in photovoltaic cells due to their efficiency increasing from 3.5% to over 20% within only five years. However, pinhole formation and incomplete coverage of solution-processed perovskite film results in increased current leakage, reducing efficiency. […]

Numerical Modeling of Wellbore Instability (Tensile Failure) Using Fracture Mechanics Approach

Numerical Modeling of Wellbore Instability (Tensile Failure) Using Fracture Mechanics Approach. ABSTRACT When a well is drilled, the equilibrium in-situ stress is changed. In order to support the stress relief induced by the drilling and to prevent hydrocarbon influx into the cavity, the borehole is filled with a fluid. These operations create new stress configurations. […]

Effect of Annealing Temperature on the Formation of Methylammonium Tin Tri-Iodide Perovskite Thin Film

Effect of Annealing Temperature on the Formation of Methylammonium Tin Tri-Iodide Perovskite Thin Film. ABSTRACT Organic-inorganic perovskite photovoltaics (PVs) have attracted a lot of attention as high-efficiency thin-film PVs which are relatively cheap and easy to fabricate. Lead halide perovskites have shown a rapid rise in power conversion efficiency by 3.8 % in 2009 to […]

The Effect of Bitumen Coatings on the Corrosion of Low Carbon Steels (Api 5l X65)

The Effect of Bitumen Coatings on the Corrosion of Low Carbon Steels (Api 5l X65). ABSTRACT The corrosion behavior of uncoated and cut-back bitumen coated X65 Steel samples are being investigated in environments of different pH (2, 3, 4 and 7). Immersion tests were carried out on the samples at 25ºC. The comparison of the […]
