Stork Testing & Metallurgical Consulting in Houston, Texas, is offering a free 1-hour online seminar, "Introduction to Environmentally-Induced Cracking." Dr. Eva Coronado of Stork Testing & Metallurgical Consulting will be presenting this webinar on Thursday, May 13, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. CST.
After completing the registration process, attendees will receive a confirmation email containing instructions for logging in and joining the webinar. [System Requirements: PC-based attendees: Required: Windows 2000, XP Home, XP Pro, 2003 Server, Vista. Macintosh -based attendees: Required: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or newer.]
Dr. Coronado will explain the important aspects of environmentally-induced cracking (EIC), including sulfide stress cracking (SSC), hydrogen-induced cracking (HIC), stress corrosion cracking (SCC) and hydrogen-stress cracking (HSC). Dr. Coronado will also explain how resistance of metals to SSC and HIC can be determined by standardized industry test methods such as those described in NACE TM0177 and TM0284. Other test methods will also be explained.
At the end of the webinar, there will be time set aside for Dr. Coronado to answer questions from participants.
