Title: Workshop on New Approaches for Field Corrosion Monitoring and Testing
Dates: Tuesday November 11 2014
Location: Sheraton New Orleans; New Orleans, LA
Event Name: November 2014 Committee Week
A Workshop on New Approaches for Field Corrosion Monitoring and Testing will be held Tuesday, November 11, 2014. Sponsored by ASTM Committee G01 on Corrosion of Metals and The Materials Technology Institute, the workshop will be held at the Sheraton New Orleans in New Orleans, LA, in conjunction with the November standards development meetings of the committee.
ASTM technical Committee G-1 on the Corrosion of Metals has been a leader in developing standards for field corrosion testing. In particular, the G4 Standard Guide for Conducting Corrosion Tests in Field Applications provided a reliable approach for carrying out mass loss evaluations of coupons in plant situations. The G96 Standard Guide for Online Monitoring of Corrosion in Plant Equipment (Electrical and Electrochemical Methods) covered techniques for rapid and continuous monitoring of corrosion rates in operating plants. These standards have been a valuable resource for engineers and technicians responsible for the safety and reliability of plant equipment. The objective of the current workshop is to survey the current state of the art involved with determining corrosion rate and damage possibilities in field situations, with the goal of updating the existing standards, and determining if additional standards on new approaches would be valuable.
In particular, the organizers of this workshop are interested in current online methods of monitoring corrosion rates, and new approaches that have been developed for this purpose. In addition, the problems of dealing with localized corrosion and environmentally assisted cracking are of interest. This workshop would be valuable for anyone responsible for plant safety and reliability. Although the primary focus is on chemical and petroleum production and refining plants, other field situations are also of interest. Engineers involved with the development of monitoring and testing equipment that can be used for corrosion related applications should also find this workshop helpful. Presentations will cover a wide range of topics and there will be time for questions and discussion.
The co-chairs of the event are looking for presentations of about 20 minutes with time thereafter for questions and
discussions. If you are interested in making a presentation please contact Sheldon Dean at email@example.com with the following information by APRIL 30,
