Abstract

Pitting corrosion often occurs due to the presence of various corrosive substances, such as CO2 and H2S, in the pipe service environment. As a result of this process, the residual strength of oil pipes is reduced and this can compromise the integrity of the entire pipe string. In the present work, a model is introduced on the basis of the API579 standard to determine the so-called stress concentration coefficient. The model accounts for pitting corrosion shapes such as shallow semi-circles, semi-circles, and deep semi-circles. The relationship between the corrosion pit depth and opening diameter and the residual strength of the oil casing is obtained. The results show that the influence of the pit opening diameter on the stress concentration coefficient is smaller than that of the pit depth. For a constant pit opening diameter, the coefficient increases gradually with increasing the pit depth. The compressive strength and internal pressure strength of the carbon steel oil casing decrease accordingly. When the depth of the corrosion pit is relatively small, the growth of the coefficient is slower; when the depth of the corrosion pit increases to a certain value, the increase in stress concentration coefficient becomes obvious.
