This report encompasses the work done for this third quarter, 2005, in accordance to cooperative agreement of University of Nevada system for the Task 019 “Subsurface Corrosion Research on Rock Bolt System, Perforated SS Sheets and Steel Sets for the Yucca Mountain Repository”, the overall objective of which is to conduct corrosion research and predict the durability of rock-bolts and other underground metallic roof supports. We have started oxidation tests using Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA), and Potentiodynamic tests to determine the corrosion rates of rock bolts, other support materials including bench mark materials.
In this quarter, we have also performed (1) dry oxidation corrosion tests (2) Immersion tests using YM waters (1x), (3) Photodynamic tests as well hydrogen permeation tests on base line material, Alloy 22- Swellex rock bolts (made by Atlas Copco) and Split Sets rock bolt (HSLA steel made by “International Rollforms”) using Modulated Thermogravimetric Analysis (MTGA) method under pure O2 atmosphere.
