Corrosion and structural integrity

Our major aim is to elucidate and quantify the processes that contribute to the deterioration and failure of engineering materials through the interaction of material composition, operating environment and the applied/residual stress system.

We've undertaken a wide range of studies included Environment Assisted Cracking (including corrosion fatigue, stress corrosion cracking and hydrogen embrittlement), Localised Corrosion, Evaluation of Metallic and Non-Metallic Coatings.

Our researchers have access to a wide range of test facilities including Electrochemical Scanning Probe Techniques to assess localised corrosion and more recently an Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope (ESEM), capable of imaging at magnifications typical of a standard SEM, but within environments up to 100 per cent relative humidity.
