Gerald FrankelThe Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a focus issue in connection with the 242nd ECS Meeting symposium, Critical Factors in Localized Corrosion 10: In Honor of Gerald Frankel.

The focus issue deals with all aspects of localized corrosion with the purpose of summarizing recent advances in fundamental and applied aspects of passivity breakdown, techniques to study initiation and propagation of localized corrosion, the effect of microstructure, advanced materials, as well as mitigation methods for localized corrosion. Papers presenting experimental and theoretical approaches to understanding localized corrosion are welcome. The issue is open to all interested authors who may submit review, critical review, perspective, methods, communication, and original research articles.

Accepting Submissions: October 6, 2022 | Submission Deadline: January 4, 2023

Dr. Thalia Standish

Dr. Thalia Standish

Congratulations to Thalia Standish of the University of Western Ontario for receiving the 2021 ECS Corrosion Division Morris Cohen Graduate Student Award. Each year, the division recognizes and rewards outstanding graduate research in the field of corrosion science and/or engineering. Such early recognition of highly qualified corrosion scientists and/or engineers is intended to encourage especially promising researchers to remain active in the field after their graduate research is completed.

Dr. Thalia Standish

Thalia Standish is a Research Scientist at Surface Science Western, where she conducts material analyses to advance academic research and help solve industrial problems. She received her PhD in Chemistry from Western University in 2019. Her graduate research focused on evaluating the galvanic corrosion behavior of copper-coated carbon steel for used nuclear fuel containers, using a combination of electrochemical techniques, x-ray micro-computed tomography (micro-CT), and surface analytical techniques. Dr. Standish is currently developing expertise in Raman spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and thermal analysis techniques, focusing on polymeric materials in particular.

New Corrosion Division Award

ECS Corrosion Division Rusty Award for Mid-Career Excellence

Nominations are now being accepted for the new ECS Corrosion Division Rusty Award for Mid-Career Excellence. The award was established recently by the ECS Honors and Awards Program and Corrosion Division to recognize a mid-career scientist or engineer’s achievements and contributions to the field of corrosion science and technology.

Award

A framed certificate; US $1,000 prize; and complimentary meeting registration are awarded to the recipient. The award is bestowed at the fall ECS biannual meeting; the recipient is expected to lecture on their research at a designated ECS Corrosion Division symposium during that meeting. Up to US $1,000 may be available to assist with travel expenses to facilitate attendance at the meeting. (more…)

A Framework for Pitting Corrosion Based on Pit Growth Stability 
Gerald S. Frankel
Fontana Corrosion Center, The Ohio State University, USA (more…)

On February 10, 2021, The Electrochemical Society hosted Dr. Reza Javaherdashti’s live webinar, “Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion: Tips, Myths, Skills.” Dr. Javaherdashti is General Manager at Eninco Engineering B.V., The Netherlands. Below are Dr. Javaherdashti’s responses to questions asked in the Q&A session following his talk.

Dr. Javaherdashti has taught more than 5000 hours about electrochemical corrosion, corrosion management, and microbial corrosion to various industries worldwide. In this webinar, he discussed and explained the most important theoretical and practical aspects of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) and microbiologically influenced deterioration (MID) mechanisms and how industry practitioners can recognize them.
