River bottom profiles for pipeline integrity management
River bottom profiles for pipeline integrity management
When conducting ongoing pipeline integrity management programs, it is vital for operators to have access to as much information regarding potential corrosive activity on their pipeline as possible. The data provided from river bottom profiles (RBP) off...

The future of the aerospace industry appears bright and will be characterized by strong aircraft demand for the foreseeable future. Consequently, demand for aluminum alloys for this industry will remain high as well. The worldwide commercial passenger ...
Shape-shifting polymer straightens out from body heat
Shape-shifting polymer straightens out from body heat
There have been plenty of tries at shape-changing materials, but this one might be the most practical yet. The University of Rochester has created a polymer that returns to its original shape when subjected to body heat. The solution was to attach poly...
Corrosion-resistant magnesium could replace aluminum in decreasing vehicle weight
Corrosion-resistant magnesium could replace aluminum in decreasing vehicle weight
Magnesium is the lightest construction metal, but also the most reactive. This means that it is very sensitive to corrosion, making it difficult to use in corrosive environments. For more than a hundred years, magnesium producers have strived to improv...
