material properties of metal that extensively used in oil and gas facility

In general, the materials used in oil and gas facilities are classified into 3 basic groups: metals, ceramics, and polymers. This scheme is primarily based on the chemical makeup and atomic structure. However, metallic materials are the most widely used group.   Metal for example, carbon steel, Alloy (stainless steel etc), aluminum, copper, titanium, and nickel. Atoms in metals and alloys are arranged in a very regular and relatively dense manner. With regard to mechanical characteristics, these materials are relatively stiff and strong, but ductile (ie, capable of large deformations without fracture), and are resistant to fracture. Material properties of[…]
