ICMT JIP Advisory Board Meeting

   ICMT advisory board members met in Athens for the semi-annual JIP project reviews. The Top-of-the-Line Corrosion JIP board met on Monday, November 3 at the Institute, Corrosion Center JIP board met for three days, November 4-6, in Baker Center, and the Water Wetting JIP board met on November 6-7 at the Institute.

   The largest of those, CC JIP board meeting included 34 representatives from 18 of the 22 project sponsors. The meeting featured 24 student and staff presentations which covered research in sweet systems, research in sour systems, factors in localized corrosion, corrosion prediction, and MULTICORP software development. Intermixed with the review of completed research, six guest speakers presented information very pertinent to the research goals of the Institute:

  • Emilyn Chan, Curtin University of Technology, Australia, “Galvanic Corrosion of Carbon Steel in CO2 Caused by Magnetite”.
  • Trevor Rayment, University of Birmingham, UK, “In-situ Sychrotron X-ray Characterization of Localized Corrosion”.
  • Michel Bonis, from Total Oil Company, France, “H2S Corrosion: Still Learning from Field Cases”.
  • Johan Deconinck, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium, “Mechanistic Modeling of Corrosion Processes”.
  • Gary Bolton, from Industrial Tomography Systems, Manchester, UK, who presented information on the Institute’s newly acquired tomography system for multiphase flow characterization.
  • Brian Kinsella, from Curtin University of Technology, Australia, "The Use of Atomic Force Microscopy in Corrosion Science".

Representatives at the meeting stated that the research topics covered had “high quality scientific merit” and were pleased with the “self-direction and leadership on corrosion prediction development.” Although the size of the meeting has outgrown the facilities at the Institute, the accommodations provided by the Baker Center support staff were exceptional and well appreciated.

The TLC JIP Board Meeting discussed current state of the research work presented by the students and covered issues related with droplet transport, oil/water co-condensation and localized corrosion. A new high pressure / high temperature video system (see picture), which will be used to observe the condensation process in situ, was also introduced for the first time. This is the second generation Envirocam from the Pennsylvanian company Enviroptics.

The Water Wetting Board Meeting included the participation of 12 representatives from 7 sponsoring companies. The work from the last 6 months was presented and we got good feedback from the representatives, both on the present status of the project and the future of this field of interest. A proposal for new Joint Industry Project to supersede the present one is expected early in 2009.

The next JIP project reviews week is scheduled for March 30 – April 3, 2009.
