Dr. Srdjan Nesic to take part in Science on Screen Series

Tuesday, October 14th at 7:00pm – Athena Cinema – downtown Athens

As a part of Science on Screen Series organized by Athena Cinema, Dr. Nesic will give a short talk on his work before a screening of the Academy Award winning film, There Will Be Blood.

Dr. Nesic will speak about his research related to oil and gas pipeline corrosion and erosion. He will also share the untold story of his involvement with the largest trial in history, the case surrounding the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

In emphasizing the importance of corrosion studies, Dr. Nesic quotes: “At US $2.2 trillion, the annual cost of corrosion worldwide is over 3% of the world’s GDP. Yet, governments and industries pay little attention to corrosion except in high-risk areas like aircraft and pipelines.” (Now is the Time, by George F. Hays, PE, Director General, World Corrosion Organization)

The event will be FREE and open to the public.

ICMT Student Received a Prestigious Award from the Prime Minister of Malaysia

Najmiddin Yaakob, a PhD student at ICMT received Perdana Scholar Award USA 2014, from The Prime Minister of Malaysia, in a ceremony held on September 26, 2014, in New York. The award, organized by Ministry of Education Malaysia, is given to the selected Malaysian students who are studying in the United States. The goal of the program is to identify, document and promote Malaysian students who have excelled in areas including academics, leadership, sports, entrepreneurship, invention and research. Congratulations, Naj!



ICMT student receives an award from ConocoPhillips

Jing Ning, a PhD student, has received a "Job Well Done!" award from ConocoPhillips for the work done during her internship at the COP last year. Her internship was done in the Corrosion, Inspection & Material group at COP, and Jing's internship project focused on introduction of a technique novel to the corrosion studies - use of Scanning Electrochemical Microscope (SECM) in corrosion studies, and investigation of the effect of corrosion inhibition on the mitigation of preferential weld corrosion. A paper of this work titled “Effect of Corrosion Inhibition on the Mitigation of Preferential Weld Corrosion in Seawater Transpor” will be published at NACE 2015. [ Read More ]



Dr. Bernard Tribollet visited ICMT


During the week of September 22 - 26, the ICMT hosted Dr. Bernard Tribollet, a Director of Research Emeritus at the “Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique” (CNRS) in the “Laboratoire Interfaces et Systèmes Electrochimiques” (LISE) at Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris.

While at the Institute, Dr. Tribollet gave a series of lectures to the ICMT students and staff related to electrochemical methods.



Dr. Bert Pots returns to ICMT for September and October 2014

Dr. Bert Pots returned to ICMT during the months of September and October 2014. Students and staff of the ICMT have yet again a unique opportunity to host Dr. Pots, and learn from his extensive industrial experience. Dr. Pots is an internationally recognized materials and corrosion expert, who has been employed with the Shell Group for more than 30 years. For his contributions to the science of CO2 corrosion and multiphase flow Dr. Pots was appointed Senior Research Fellow by the Institute.

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.

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.
