An engagement of different soil characterization techniques including ion chromatography, inductively coupled plasma, scanning electron microscopy, and X-ray diffraction (XRD) has been utilized to study nature of the soils from seven locations where corrosion previously occurred on buried pipeline steels. Moisture contents from engaged samples were below 20%, and the organic matter contents were negligible. The least resistivity was observed on soil sample (SS) 4. The energy-dispersive X-ray… CONTINUE READING
