Abstract

Corrosion behaviour of HSLA steel immersed in fresh and salt water for a four weeks period was investigated by weight loss method at room temperature. The main applications considered for the current work are underground water pipes and the pipeline systems in desalination plants. The corrosion behaviour in the saltwater medium was more severe but the rate was found to drop in the fourth week, presumably due to the formation of a protective passive film on the surface. The combination of ferrite and cementite phases in the microstructure contributed to promoting the corrosion rate due to the initiation of galvanic cells between both phases.
