||Research on Corrosion-Related Soil Resistivity and pH Measurements
to Be Presented at ASTM Meeting in November
An overview of current research will be presented by Moavin Islam,
Ph.D., principal engineer, Corrpro Companies, Inc., Chantilly,
Va., during a meeting of ASTM Subcommittee G01.10 Corrosion in
Soils on Thursday, Nov. 16, 10-11 a.m., at the Rosen Centre Hotel,
Orlando, Fla. Of interest to corrosion and structural engineers,
the meeting is free and open to the public.
Islam will describe research for the development of improved methods
for soil resistivity and pH measurement. These measurement results
are then intended to be verified, and applied toward more accurate
prediction of corrosion service life.
In the corrosion field 26 years, Islam leads a corrosion-control
research team that specializes in cathodic protection and engineering
systems, and corrosion protection services related to coatings,
non-destructive testing pipeline integrity, and concrete structures.
The 30-minute presentation will be followed by a question and
answer session. Additional Subcommittee G01.10 activities will
be held Nov. 15-17 at the hotel during the meetings of ASTM Committee
G01 on Corrosion of Metals.

chair, Charlie Marsh, Ph.D., Materials Research Engineer (CEERD-CF-M), Engineer Research
and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory,
