First Defense of Fall 2019 for Claudia Prieto

Claudia Prieto Nieto successfully defended her MS thesis on September 17, 2019; the first of several ICMT defenses scheduled for the semester. Her research topic was the "Mechanical Characteristics and Adherence of Corrosion Products on Mild Steel", where she focused on using nanoindentation and scratch testing to characterize the adhesive and cohesive characteristics of FeCO3, FeS, CaCO3 and FexCayCO3 on a X65 pipeline steel. Her research has implications for both localized corrosion and black powder formation. During her time in ICMT, she also performed research on the corrosion of additively manufactured 316L stainless steel specimens. This work was recognized when she won the Mars Fontana poster award category, for Corrosion Engineering, at NACE2018. Her resultant invited research letter on this topic, "Investigation of Pitting Corrosion Initiation and Propagation of a Type 316L Stainless Steel Manufactured by the Direct Metal Laser Sintering Process", is currently the 10th most viewed paper of 2019 in the journal Corrosion. Claudia is currently developing ICMT's capabilities in Electron Backscatter Diffraction during the remainder of the semester. Her research has been conducted within our "Black Powder" project, funded by the Petroleum Institute, and the Corrosion Center JIP.
