Researchers on a South Pacific island try a new approach to detoxing the ocean
Researchers on a South Pacific island try a new approach to detoxing the ocean
Nickel mining is contaminating the waters of New Caledonia, and scientists are testing a commonly used approach for protecting metal from corrosion as a technique for removing metal from the ocean.
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.
High pressure key to more advanced metal alloys
High pressure key to more advanced metal alloys
A new study suggests that high pressure could be the key to developing advanced metal mixtures that are lighter, stronger, and more resistant to heat and corrosion than conventional alloys.
A new approach to corrosion-resistant aerospace designs
A new approach to corrosion-resistant aerospace designs
To help engineers and designers make good design and maintenance material choices by predicting and quantifying galvanic corrosion risk at material interfaces, an easy-to-use software program was developed for the Sea-Based Aviation team under a Small ...
High-strength alloys and connection options for extreme HPHT wells
High-strength alloys and connection options for extreme HPHT wells
Ultra-high-pressure and high-temperature (HPHT) wells are challenging the limits of tubular performance, in terms of metallurgy and threaded connections. But higher pressures and temperatures are only part of the challenge. Carbon steel, hot-rolled chr...
Photosynthesis of anticorrosive protective coatings for steel substrates
Photosynthesis of anticorrosive protective coatings for steel substrates
Novel environment-friendly anticorrosive coating formulations for mild steel substrates based on acrylated oil were prepared by using unsaturated amino acid compounds. The researchers from Egyptian Atomic Energy Authority synthesized the new corrosion ...
