Symposia Recent Experiences with Nickel, Titanium, Zirconium, and Other Corrosion-Resistant Alloys – Day 2 This symposium will include technical papers on the practical use and experience with corrosion-resistant alloys including nickel base, titanium, zirconium, and other corrosion-resistant alloys. Sponsoring Committee: STG 39 Chair: Ralph Baessler Vice Chair: Ajit Mishra Steel & Concrete – Research in Progress This symposium will include presentations that will deal with all aspect of corrosion of steel in concrete, including reinforced concrete structures, offshore and onshore infrastructure, bridges, and concrete pipelines. Furthermore, different aspects of corrosion of steel in concrete will be covered, such as pitting corrosion, uniform corrosion, new cementitious materials, geopolymer concrete, fly ash concrete corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, fatigue corrosion, weld joint corrosion, electrochemical chloride removal, and electrochemical realkalinization. Experimental results, modeling, and simulation are emphasized, including electrochemical and surface characterization techniques. Sponsoring Committee: Research Committee Chair: David Bastidas Vice Chair: Burkan Isgor The Digital Asset Transformation – Driving Value for Corrosion and Asset Integrity Management – Day 2 This symposium will include the benefits of recent developments and industry trends in digital technologies for corrosion and integrity management. Many industry sectors are seeking to increase efficiency and reduce costs through the application of digitalization and technologies such as 3D visualization and the Internet of Things (IoT). The transforming potential in "big data" capture, information management and analytics, and the possibilities for implementing artificial intelligence (AI), all of which can reduce risk and facilitate better decision making, are fully applicable to the management of corrosion and asset integrity regardless of industry type. The symposium will endeavor to obtain papers from different industries covering a broad range of topics on these new developments from both technology providers and end users/asset operators. Sponsoring Committee: STG 08 Chair: Cecilie Haarseth Vice Chair: Christopher Houghton WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27 Advances in Coatings Under Insulation Technologies This symposium will include papers that cover coating technology and insulation technology for industrial facilities. Sponsoring Committee: TEG 351X Chair: Michael Yee Vice Chair: Michael Surkein Advances in Materials for Oil and Gas Production – Day 1 This symposium will include technical papers on advances in materials technology and research for oil and gas production environments. The focus is on new and improved metallic materials and applications including consideration and measurement of the material's performance in the envisaged exposure environment. Papers on field experiences, failure analysis, and mitigation through metallurgical aspects are also sought. Sponsoring Committee: STG 32 Chair: Hisashi Amaya Vice Chair: Hernan Rincon Corrosion in Nuclear Systems This symposium will include technical papers on materials-related issues encountered in the generation of nuclear power energy in light, heavy, and advanced nuclear power reactors and plants. This can include degradation mechanisms of structural materials and materials reliability issues encountered in nuclear power applications, including degradation mechanisms and degradation management. Papers can also include areas such as advance materials design and manufacturing for current and future advanced reactor components. Methods can include additive manufacturing. Sponsoring Committees: TEG 224X and TEG 465X Chair: Jared Smith Vice Chair: Ziqing Zhai Corrosion of Copper and Copper Alloys This symposium will include technical papers on seawater corrosion of copper and copper alloys to include: shipboard piping and heat exchangers, other shipboard uses and experiences, desalination units/plants on and near the coastline, offshore platform systems, ships propellers, seacoast and offshore applications of copper alloys in architectural applications, and any and all other experiences presented. Sponsoring Committee: TEG 523X Chair: Jim Michel Vice Chair: Ruben Muro Direct Assessment This symposium will include technical papers covering new technologies and methods, as well as case studies and histories in the areas of external corrosion, internal corrosion, and stress corrosion cracking by way of direct assessments. Sponsoring Committee: STG 35 Chair: Rodrigo J Himiob Vice Chair: Jorge Vasquez Environmentally Assisted Cracking – Day 2 This symposium will include technical papers on understanding of all kinds of EAC mechanisms including but not limited to hydrogen embrittlement, stress corrosion cracking, corrosion fatigue, liquid metal embrittlement, and so on. The papers can cover root cause failure analysis in service, laboratory testing methods, materials modeling, industry standards development, state-of-the-art EAC research reviews, and so on. Sponsoring Committee: TEG 186X Chair: Arshad Bajvani Gavanluei Vice Chair: Fei Tang Geothermal Scaling and Corrosion This symposium will include technical papers on geothermal corrosion and scaling in wells and surface equipment. It includes materials selection, inhibitors, and other strategies to combat corrosion and scaling in conventional and enhanced geothermal wells, and synergies with oil and gas applications.
