ICMT hosts Dr. Lilian Ferreira and Dr. Haijun Hu as Visiting Researchers

The ICMT is currently hosting two visiting research scientists from universities overseas, Dr. Lilian Ferreira and Dr. Haijun Hu.
Lilian is a professor of physics at Sociedade Educacional de Santa Catarina in Brazil, her research focus is fluid dynamics. She is currently engaged in looking into how flow affects CO2 corrosion.
Haijun is a lecturer in the School of Chemical Engineering, Xi'an Jiaotong University in China. His research is also related to fluid dynamics, but with an emphasis on how its impacts the modeling of corrosion phenomena.
We look forward to further cementing collaborative relationships between our laboratories.



ICMT in NACE Press Release

The paper, "How Do Inhibitors Mitigate Corrosion in Oil-Water Two-Phase Flow Beyond Lowering the Corrosion Rate?" written by Chong Li, Sonja Richter, and Srdjan Nesic appears in NACE International's journal, CORROSION, September 2014 as one of the “Targeted News Service”.

Dr. Marc Singer visited the Petroleum Institute Abu Dhabi

Dr. Marc Singer travelled to the Petroleum Institute (PI) Abu Dhabi in May 2014 and met with Dr. Yves Gunaltun, Total Chair Professor at PI, to discuss on-going and future collaboration with Ohio University. During the visit, Dr. Singer gave an overview of the ICMT activities and presented preliminary results related to the "thermodynamics and kinetics of reactions in systems containing hydrogen sulfide and dioxide" project. Also in the picture is Dr. Saeed Alhassan, Director of the Gas Research Center which oversees the current collaboration between PI and OU.




Summer 2014 Thesis Defense

Three people from the ICMT have recently presented and successfully defended their thesis, they are:

  • Thu Tran (PhD) thesis is entitled "Corrosion Mechanisms of Mild Steel in Weak Acids".
  • Kok-Eng Kee (PhD) thesis is entitled "A study of flow patterns and surface wetting in gas-oil-water flow".
  • Yougui Zheng (PhD) thesis is entitled "Electrochemical Mechanism and Model of H2S Corrosion of Carbon Steel".

These are the most recent graduates of the ICMT, click here to view all Alumni.

Representatives from Xi'an Jiaotong University in China visit ICMT

From April 14th to 18th, ICMT hosted Chinese representatives from the School of Chemical Engineering, Xi'an Jiaotong University, China – Dr. Yun Li, Professor and Dr. Haijun Hu, Lecturer. During the visit both parties gave an overview of the research activities taking place at their respective Universities and explored the possibilities for future collaboration. The visit also included talks about the academic collaboration with the ChEBio Department Chair, Dr. Valerie Young. Research collaboration will start in summer 2014-15, when Dr. Haijun Hu will come to the ICMT as a visiting research scientist. Dr. Nesic was also named adjunct professor at Xi'an Jiaotong University.

Congratulations to Dr. Yoon-Seok Choi for being the first news
item on the front page of NACE Corrosion Press news

An article with the title "Predicting corrosion risks for deepwater oil production infrastructure" was published by NACE International. Dr. Choi and Petrobras researchers have evaluated the corrosion behavior of carbon steel encountered within a variety of deepwater oil production environments and created a database to help predict risks and determine appropriate prevention strategies.

NIST CO2 Corrosion Postdoc Opportunity and Lecture

On Wednesday February 12th, 2013 the ICMT hosted Dr. Jeffrey Sowards from Applied Chemicals and Materials Division of National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado. Dr. Sowards gave a lecture on “Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion of Copper and Steel Alloys in the Presence of Acetobacter sp. in a Simulated UST Sump Environment”.




Multicorp 5.1 Released

The latest version of Multicorp (5.1.204) has been released and is available for download. This release includes a number of improvements and upgrades which vastly expand the user interface in terms of fluidity, clarity, and robustness as well as including the ability to run parametric and line model simulations. This software was developed by the TLC-JIP, WW-JIP, and CC-JIP projects. It includes different modules varying by project. These modules are only available to members who are directly part of the corresponding project. ICMT members are welcome to share their comments on the CC-JIP Discussion Forum. New versions of MULTICORP will be released as major updates are implemented.
