Abstract: The temperature dependences of crack growth in static tests of X70 pipe steel in citrate buffer (pH 5.5) and in the same solution containing 1 mM sulfide were studied. The activation energies of corrosion crack growth were determined. It was shown that addition of IFKhAN-29-3 organic corrosion inhibitor hindered the crack growth and the protective effect increased with an increase in temperature.
