Aluminum oxide coatings move like liquids to combat corrosion
Aluminum oxide coatings move like liquids to combat corrosion
Metals may seem tough, but given enough time even plain old air can be their undoing. Oxygen reacts with it to form metal oxides like rust, but now it turns out a metal oxide may come to the rescue. An MIT team has found that aluminum can be protected ...

Augmented reality combines worlds to make the real world safer
Pokemon Go is widely credited with popularizing augmented reality technology, which enhances reality when a device such as a phone or a headset overlays digital information (in the form of holograms) onto the real world.

Research project focuses on microbial-induced pipeline corrosion
A collaborative four-year research project will study microorganisms found in oil and gas pipeline environments and look for trends related to microbiologically influenced corrosion.
Protecting steel-reinforced concrete marine structures from corrosion
Protecting steel-reinforced concrete marine structures from corrosion
The major cause of deterioration on steel-reinforced concrete structures located in marine environments is corrosion of the reinforcing steel.

Why Russia's nuclear submarine fleet might be 'sinking'
By 2030, the bulk of Russia's nuclear-powered attack and cruise-missile submarines will be in their mid-thirties at least — with some pushing into their forties.
Soil-side corrosion causes premature failure of oil storage tank bottom plates
Soil-side corrosion causes premature failure of oil storage tank bottom plates
Without an effective cathodic protection system and no other means of corrosion control, the tank floor was exposed to a severe form of bacterial and underdeposit corrosion.
