Hydrogen embrittlement is a common, dangerous, and poorly understood cause of failure in many metal alloys. This article presents a model based on the correlation of mechanical properties to scanning electron microscopy fractography analysis of fracture surfaces in the presence of simultaneously active hydrogen embrittlement micro-mechanisms.
Sample sterilization is a crucial step in microbially induced corrosion (MIC) research that is usually overlooked. In this regard, metal sterilization procedures should not alter the surface nor affect the inherent susceptibility of the metal to corrosion while adequately deactivating biological activity. So, are all sterilization methods the same? Do they alter the corrosion response of the sample being investigated?

This blog entry provides the link to download our final NACE CORROSION 2015 publication on corrosion of carbon steel in the presence of alternate currents (AC). Elmira Ghanbari presents a model, based on fundamental corrosion principles, which estimates the effect of an applied AC interference on Faradaic processes leading to corrosion.
