Dr. Nesic to be plenary speaker at EUROCORR and ACA corrosion conferences

 

Dr. Nesic is scheduled to be a plenary speaker at two major corrosion conferences - the European Corrosion Congress (EUROCORR) to be held in Graz, Austria, and Corrosion & Prevention 2015 Conference in Australia.

EUROCORR 2015 will again assert the critical role of corrosion science, technology and engineering and provide participants of academic and industrial background, with an opportunity to showcase their services and products. Dr. Nesic will present the work titled: “Recent Advances in Modeling of Corrosion in CO2 and H2S Aqueous Environments”.

[ EUROCORR Lecturers ]

The Corrosion & Prevention 2015 Conference, organized by the Australasian Corrosion Association, will be held in Adelaide, Australia. The conference is a gathering of leading experts with premium networking opportunities and a source of the latest information concerning corrosion and its mitigation. Dr. Nesic is one among six world renown corrosion scientists invited to present as plenary lecturers.

Dr. Tingyue Gu visits Saudi Aramco and SABIC in Saudi Arabia

Dr. Tingyue Gu, Professor of Chemical Engineering, travelled to Dhahran in Dec. 2014 to present Ohio University’s research on using D-amino acids as biocide enhancers to reduce biocide dosages while increasing their efficacies against problematic biofilms in the oil and gas industry. He also travelled to SABIC Research and Technology Center in the nearby Jubail Industrial City to give an update on MIC-JIP research. SABIC is one of the MIC-JIP sponsors.



NACE Workshop Invitation for Jing Ning

Jing Ning has been invited to be a panelist at the NACE “Workshop on Sour Gas Corrosion” (TEG 282X) at CORROSION2015. She will present on her dissertation topic “The Role of Iron Sulfide Polymorphism in Localized Corrosion of Mild Steel”. Jing is in the final stage of completing her PhD, her participation as a panelist is a first for an ICMT graduate student and is recognition of her research excellence. So mark your calendar to be in Room 167, The Key Bailey Hutchison Convention Center on the afternoon of Sunday, March 15 to attend the workshop.

ICMT Hosts Joint Industry Project's Advisory Board Meetings

Corrosion Center Joint Industry Project


ICMT hosted The Corrosion Center Joint Industry Project (CC JIP) Advisory Board meeting on October 21st – 23rd, at Ohio University. The two day meeting was lead by Dr. Bruce Brown and attended by 21 representatives from 15 companies with even more sponsors joining in on the live webinar of the meeting. The sixteen presentations provided by students and staff covered topics about sour corrosion, sweet corrosion, inhibition mechanisms, localized corrosion, and corrosion modeling. The Multicorp corrosion prediction software workshop was held on Thursday morning with 8 people attending the ½ day meeting.

The next CCJIP Advisory Board meeting is tentatively scheduled to be held again at Ohio University, March 10th - 12th, 2015.
Water Wetting Joint Industry Project Phase III

Hosted by the ICMT and lead by Dr. Luciano Paolinelli, the Advisory Board Meeting for Water Wetting JIP Phase 3, was held in Athens on October 23rd – 24th. Companies sponsoring the WWJIP include ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, BP America, Shell Global Solutions, Enbridge, Petronas, and Total. Students and staff used the opportunity to present their latest research findings and reports to sponsors and to receive valuable feedback about the project from sponsors.

The next WWJIP Advisory Board meeting is scheduled for March 9, 2015, in Athens, OH.



Dr. Srdjan Nesic took part in Science on Screen Series

On October 14th, 2014, as a part of Science on Screen Series organized by Athena Cinema, Dr. Nesic gave a short talk on his work before a screening of the Academy Award winning film, There Will Be Blood, in Athena Cinema, downtown Athens.

Dr. Nesic spoke about his research related to oil and gas pipeline corrosion and erosion. He also shared the untold story of his involvement with the largest trial in history, the case surrounding the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

ICMT student receives an award from ConocoPhillips

Jing Ning, a PhD student, has received a "Job Well Done!" award from ConocoPhillips for the work done during her internship at the COP last year. Her internship was done in the Corrosion, Inspection & Material group at COP, and Jing's internship project focused on introduction of a technique novel to the corrosion studies - use of Scanning Electrochemical Microscope (SECM) in corrosion studies, and investigation of the effect of corrosion inhibition on the mitigation of preferential weld corrosion. A paper of this work titled “Effect of Corrosion Inhibition on the Mitigation of Preferential Weld Corrosion in Seawater Transpor” will be published at NACE 2015.

ICMT hosts Dr. Lilian Ferreira and Dr. Haijun Hu as Visiting Researchers

The ICMT hosted two visiting research scientists from universities overseas, Dr. Lilian Ferreira and Dr. Haijun Hu.
Lilian is a professor of physics at Sociedade Educacional de Santa Catarina in Brazil, her research focus is fluid dynamics. She is currently engaged in looking into how flow affects CO2 corrosion.
Haijun is a lecturer in the School of Chemical Engineering, Xi'an Jiaotong University in China. His research is also related to fluid dynamics, but with an emphasis on how its impacts the modeling of corrosion phenomena.
We look forward to further cementing collaborative relationships between our laboratories.



ICMT in NACE Press Release

The paper, "How Do Inhibitors Mitigate Corrosion in Oil-Water Two-Phase Flow Beyond Lowering the Corrosion Rate?" written by Chong Li, Sonja Richter, and Srdjan Nesic appears in NACE International's journal, CORROSION, September 2014 as one of the “Targeted News Service”.

Multicorp 5.2 Released

The latest version of Multicorp 5.2 has been released and is available for download. This release includes a number of improvements and upgrades which vastly expand the user interface in terms of fluidity, clarity, and robustness as well as including the ability to run parametric and line model simulations. This software was developed by the TLC-JIP, WW-JIP, and CC-JIP projects. It includes different modules varying by project. These modules are only available to members who are directly part of the corresponding project. ICMT members are welcome to share their comments on the CC-JIP Discussion Forum. New versions of MULTICORP will be released as major updates are implemented.
