Atmospheric and Marine Environments

This RIP symposium is seeking abstracts that cover fundamental studies of materials exposed in marine and atmospheric conditions. Abstracts should address a performance or protection aspect of materials. Topical phenomena of interest include, but are not limited to, galvanic, localized and general corrosion, cathodic protection and coatings systems specific to marine immersion and atmospheric environments. Fundamental aspects of the on-going research including galvanic interactions, occluded chemistries, electrochemical techniques, metallurgical influences, and mechanistic initiation/propagation studies are of particular interest. Laboratory experimentation, computational modeling and marine environment case-studies are welcome. Submissions should include the most recent results, accomplishments and/or theories.

Biomedical Environments

This RIP symposium is seeking abstracts that cover advancements in the biomedical field with respect to biomaterials/device corrosion, degradation, and biocompatibility. Topics of interest include, but not limited to: emerging materials (e.g., biodegradable alloys), fretting corrosion (e.g., orthopedic joints), device interaction with the biological environment, implant retrieval analysis, novel corrosion evaluation methods, electrochemical techniques in biosensors and active implants, and surface treatments to modulate implant degradation. Presentations will focus on recent advances in corrosion of implants and will span a wide range of product application areas such as cardiovascular, orthopedic, neurological and dental devices and biomaterials.

Coatings and Inhibitors

This RIP symposium will serve as a forum for discussion of:

Sustainable corrosion protection can be provided by either multi-functional coatings and/or inhibitors. A tailored design of such coatings requires working out elaborate processing (manufacturing), multiscale, internal structures, and chemical compositions. The development of inhibitors can be as a chemical added to the coating multifunctionality or to the existed electrolyte or environment.

This session includes presentations on the processing, materials characterization, and performance of coatings produced by a wide variety of functionalities (barrier, sacrificial, inhibition, self-healing, hybrid, etc.) that encompass different manufacturing routes (including traditional and additive manufacturing). In addition, we welcome inhibitors’ performance as an added chemical to the coating or by itself.

Topics of focus include new innovations in process technology, characterization, non-destructive evaluation, modeling, and emerging applications. Some examples are: (i) Corrosion, wear, and galling resistant performance of coatings and surface treatment produced by different processes, including but not limited to additive manufacturing processes. (ii) Understanding of degradation mechanisms of coatings through the mechanical load, wear, and corrosion; the relationship between coating composition, corrosion control mechanisms, microstructural and nanostructure features, and test environments, and their effects on performance and life. (ii) The latest development of test methods considering the interplay between mechanical, chemical, and electrochemical interactions and the ability to predict performance. Emphasis on valid, accelerated performance tests and the relation between test technique and field performance data is specifically appreciated. (iv) Theoretical modeling to predict coating properties, performance, durability, and reliability in service environments. (v) Understanding inhibitors efficiency and protection mechanisms.

Environmentally Assisted Cracking and Hydrogen Embrittlement

This RIP session includes presentations that focus on all aspects of environment assisted cracking and hydrogen embrittlement, with a specific focus on, but not limited to, cracking of stainless steels, magnesium, aluminum, nickel, additive manufactured, and high entropy alloys and conventional or newly developing corrosion resistant alloys (CRAs). Studies related to the resistance of materials to the initiation and growth of cracks during stress corrosion cracking, corrosion fatigue, and hydrogen embrittlement are included. In addition, studies related to the development of novel techniques to monitor crack initiation and growth, including pit-to-crack transition, testing protocols/environments, and life prediction models are featured. Work should focus on the latest results and research currently in progress.

High Temperature Applications

This RIP symposium is seeking abstracts that cover recent advances made in understanding high-temperature oxidation and corrosion and developing materials for high-temperature applications. The topics of interest include high-temperature material degradation issues in clean energy generating systems, hot corrosion, CMAS attack, metal dusting, sulfidation, thermal barrier coatings, environmental barrier coatings, corrosion-resistant materials, and molten salt corrosion. Recent developments in understanding the high-temperature oxidation of multi-principle element alloys and additively manufactured alloys are of special interest.

Materials Protection and Performance in Construction and Infrastructure

This RIP symposium aims to gather current research and future trends on materials protection and performance in construction and infrastructure sectors. Topics related to corrosion prevention and coatings application in the broaden area of corrosion of steel in porous media, building, construction, architecture and infrastructure including off-shore an on-shore infrastructure, bridges and concrete pipelines, are highly encourage and welcome. Different aspects of materials protection and performance will be covered including pitting corrosion, uniform corrosion, chloride corrosion threshold, carbonation influenced corrosion, cathodic protection, stress corrosion cracking, fatigue corrosion, weld joints corrosion, corrosion inhibitors, additive manufacturing, new corrosion monitoring techniques, modeling and simulation.

Communications including computational assisted modeling (machine learning, artificial intelligence) applied to materials performance mechanisms and lifetime prediction are of high interest. Including electrochemical and surface characterization techniques and interface mechanisms. Submissions should focus on recent results or currently ongoing research.
