Study on Corrosion of X80 Pipeline Steel in Different Water Content of Soil


Article Preview

The electrochemical corrosion of X80 pipeline steel in Xinzhou’s soil with different water content is tested and analyzed. The corrosion signal time and frequency domain figure show that the corrosion signal fluctuates all the time in 30 days’ test with low water content (14%). The slope of high-frequency linear segment in the potential PSD is smaller than it is at the beginning. In the soil with the middle water content (18%), the intense wave motion lasts for 15 days. The noise fluctuation only exists before the third days when in the high water content soil (22%). After the third day, linear drift can be observed but no transient peak. The slope of high-frequency linear segment changes obviously compared with the situation in the beginning. And the high-frequency white noise appears.
