Dr. Ajit Mishra and I have organized the upcoming TEG 407X (STG 60) Mechanisms of localized corrosion in Memoriam of Professor José Galvele (March 1937 - August 2011). The year 2016 marked the 40th anniversary of Prof. Galvele’s seminal “Transport Processes and the Mechanism of Pitting of Metals” publication. Our goal for the symposium was to bring the best of industry and academia under one roof. We will be honored by the presence of distinguished guest speakers from both industry and academia. A list of lecturers and scope of their talks is presented below.
Professor Susan Smialowska died at her home in Zalesie (Poland) on Thursday 05-March–2015. She was 89 years old. On 11-March–2015, she was laid to rest in Warsaw next to her husband Michal Smialowski. (continue reading)
The deadline for abstract submission is May 1st. This post describes the symposium objectives and provides a link to NACE International Abstract Submission Portal.
Corrigendum of our paper entitled: "Sulfide stress cracking of nickel-containing low-alloy steels".
A fault tree methodology has been used to analyze the combinations of basic factors involved in fungal degradation and corrosion.
The objective of this work was to develop the foundation for an interactive corrosion risk management tool, based on Markov Analysis, for assessing the probability of failure of industrial components as a function of threats (such as pitting corrosion and coating degradation) and mitigation schemes (such as inhibitors and coatings). doi: 10.5006/1184
