A review was carried out on the impact of corrosion on offshore platforms, vessels, and structures in the Trinidad and Tobago Atlantic Ocean environment. This article analyzes carbon steel coupons placed at different points on steel piles.
Concrete beams should be resistant against the influence of corrosive agents, environmental degradation, and mechanical forces. In this article, the effect of two different concrete mixing designs is investigated against the pole’s bend strength behavior.
This article presents an overview of corrosion-related issues that have been disclosed on post-tensioned bridges in both the United States and Europe.
Risk-based inspections are believed to be one of the most efficient types of inspections, based on numerous evaluations of site visits and of asset integrity audits.
Impressed current anodes for atmospherically exposed steel in concrete are very different from anodes for underground and underwater applications.
There are certain fundamental considerations that should be understood in relation to open recirculated systems.
One of the first successful techniques for locating coating defects (holidays) on buried pipelines using surface electrical measurements is the Pearson survey, named after its inventor.
The greatest use of high-temperature water and steam is in electrical power generation. Historically, fossil fuels were used almost exclusively to heat water for steam until the introduction of nuclear power steam generators. This article briefly summarizes corrosion considerations for fossil fuel and nuclear fuel steam plants.
Next year the association celebrates its Diamond Anniversary, a milestone made possible by the knowledge, expertise, and continued support of its members from around the globe.
Given that the October print issue of MP is focused on CORROSION 2018, it seems appropriate to describe some of the strategic planning-related activities that will occur at this upcoming conference.
The overarching goals create a specific, measurable, and attainable verbal picture of what our association will look like by October 2019.
With a commitment to core ideology behind us, strategic planning efforts shifted toward survey input and analytical data that helped create a picture of the current state of health of our association.
Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is a mechanical-chemical process leading to the cracking of certain alloys at stresses below their tensile strength.
Last month we defined ideology as a body of beliefs that guide individuals or large groups. To define our core ideology, the NACE International Board of Directors recognized that we must answer three questions.
Strategic planning is a process that provides a roadmap for taking our association from a well-defined present state, to a compelling and significantly different future state.
