DNV can help you select materials that will perform well in any operating environment.
It is important to select the right materials to withstand environmental and operating stresses and avoid failures.
We have extensive experience in the analysis and selection of materials. Our materials and corrosion specialists include both engineers and Ph.D. scientists with backgrounds in metallurgy, materials science, polymers, corrosion and others. Our diverse staff works together to address a broad range of materials-related problems. These include general and localized corrosion, coating degradation, stress corrosion cracking, high temperature corrosion, corrosion fatigue, thermal fatigue, creep and fracture mechanics.
Various techniques are used to analyze candidate materials and apply the results of these analyses to assist in proper material selection. Some of the techniques employed to analyze candidate materials include:
