In this newly released AMPP webcast, inspection and policy experts explore the basics of the building inspection process; strategies to ensure buildings are protected; and important resources and tools. They also respond to viewer questions.
Officials from some states told the U.S. Government Accountability Office that they use sealant on bridge decks to prevent corrosion. However, officials from another said they do not, because they do not know how effective it is.
A recent report from a civil engineering form suggests that San Diego’s Ocean Beach Municipal Pier has suffered significant damage over the last 55 years and “has reached the end of its service life,” as presently constructed.
There are many offerings for both above- and below-ground pipeline isolation. But only certain designs may be appropriate, considering the varied applications that pipelines have, changing conditions, and the need to design for a sustainable future.
When designing a heat exchanger system, engineers must consider ways to control and mitigate the many different kinds of fouling. These control plans must be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for each unique environment.
Sponsored by AMPP’s technical coordination committee, the October 2021 event will include a series of meetings focused on methods of identifying, preventing, and combating corrosion problems across all major industries. The show was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19.
In this recent study, researchers sought to better understand the physicochemical attributes on the corrosion of carbon steel (CS) in the high-pressure environments associated with CO2 transmissions pipelines.
As a drone flies over a specified area of a ship, such as a hull or the rear, it transmits video to create a digital model. This process contributes to the ship’s detailed analysis, including potential areas of concern for corrosion or rust.
Led by Dr. Mehrooz Zamanzadeh, technical director and principal investigator at Matergenics, this roundtable discussion explores the need to conduct corrosion risk assessments of infrastructure after exposure to wildfires.
The partnership between AMPP and the Brazilian Association for the Development of Nuclear Activities (ABDAN) will focus on promoting corrosion control programming and quality requirements for Brazil’s nuclear energy sector.
The availability of data via remote ultrasonic monitoring tools means greater productivity. Not only can employees monitor corrosion-rate data in almost real-time, but they can overlay this information with operational data.
This podcast explores corrosion concerns in residential buildings and the possible implications of corrosion in the Champlain Towers collapse in Surfside, Florida, USA.
U.S. regulators are making progress on a bill that emphasizes the need for corrosion planning and qualified personnel on bridge construction, replacement, and maintenance.
This webcast provides insight into solutions for corrosion under insulation (CUI), which can be a challenge for high-temperature applications such as refineries and petrochemical facilities.
The Belenus condition sensor utilizes an ultrasonic pulse-echo to provide in-service monitoring of pipe wall thickness. It can be fitted to structures including pipes, storage tanks, and pressure vessels.
