Corrosion and Coatings Challenges in Industry
Corrosion has a huge economic impact. Studies have recently confirmed that the cost due to corrosion problems amounts to 3 to 4% of the Gross Domestic Product of industrialized countries. Therefore, improving the reliability, efficiency and safety of materials used in plants and infrastructure has become a subject of great interest all over the world. The main objective of this symposium is to present the state-of-the-art for various topics in the field of corrosion and its prevention. Moreover, this symposium will enhance the interaction among the corrosion scientists and engineers from universities, scientific institutes and industry. The scientific and technical areas covered by this symposium are: 1. Corrosion in petroleum, chemical, food processing, metallurgical, power, nuclear and building industries. 2. Corrosion forms (pitting, crevice, galvanic, stress and fatigue). 3. Corrosion monitoring (destructive and nondestructive). 4. Corrosion protection by inhibitors, cathodic protection, surface modification, paints and coatings. 5. Advanced surface coatings technology (nanocomposite coatings, Sol- gel coatings, CVD- PVD, smart coatings, ...etc). 6. Case studies from industry. 7. Failure analysis due to corrosion or coatings defects. 8. Materials selection.
