Formation of the intergranular networks of carbon-hydride like compounds at grain boundaries during the ageing of pipe steel is one of the main reasons causing the change of material properties and creating favourable conditions for formation of structures with defects, initiation of stress corrosion and rise of intensity of electrochemical processes that cause corrosion.
2004) found that PCD tool wear was due to intergranular wear and partial cleavage fracture, and microcracking was a key factor influencing PCD tool wear.
post-depositional burial in areas free of Intense tectonic or metamorphlc activity to ensure preservation of original textures such as monocrystallinity of grains (absence of diagenetic overgrowths), crush resistance of quartz grains (absence of tectonically Induced weak planes), and minimal Intergranular cementation (Zdunczyk, 2007).
Corrosion Testing: Salt spray, Intergranular corrosion
The cores have visible intergranular porosity and extensive fracturing," said Andy Pierce VP of Operations.
The topics include evaluating internal stresses using rotating-slit and two-dimensional detectors, in situ neutron diffraction measurements of the deformation behavior in high manganese steels, the effect of intergranular interaction and lattice rotation on predicted residual stress and textures in austenite and ferrite, evaluating residual stresses at the interface with implant by synchrotron radiation, the effect of process atmosphere on the microstructure and residual stresses after the laser surface hardening of steel, residual stress in coating produced by cold spray, and investigating residual stress/strain and texture in a large dissimilar metal weld using synchrotron radiation and neutrons.
Mafic igneous rocks with microlithic to intergranular texture are ubiquitous but less abundant than more felsic compositions.

These structure tend to be brighter at their center and surrounded by dark intergranular lanes (see Fig.
