About Daniel Cubicciotti
Daniel Cubicciotti was born in Philadelphia in 1921, but spent most of his life in northern California. His 47-year professional career as a researcher, included 20 years at SRI International and 13 years at the Electric Power Research Institute. Cubicciotti left a legacy to the nuclear industry replete with innovation and usable information in the areas of fuel cladding materials, stress corrosion cracking, Pourbaix diagrams, and microbiologically influenced corrosion. He also helped numerous non-experts in corrosion to appreciate the importance of corrosion processes, and more importantly, provided them with valuable tools to predict where or how attack might occur, and how to mitigate or prevent such problems.
