  • For the conditions expected in a Canadian nuclear waste vault, the two corrosion processes most likely to lead to the failure of titanium waste containers are crevice corrosion and/or hydrogen induced cracking (HIC). In this report the processes likely to lead to hydrogen absorption by titanium alloys (Grades-2, -12, -16), and hence to render them susceptible to HIC are discussed. The possible paths to container failure via a combination of crevice corrosion, general passive corrosion and HIC… CONTINUE READING
