    Abstract

    This paper is based on a keynote lecture given at the Third International Conference on Tribo-Corrosion, sponsored by ASTM International and held at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, April 19–20, 2012. It summarises the tribo-corrosion-related research relevant to the energy sector that has taken place over the past 30 years at the National Centre for Advanced Tribology at Southampton at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. Research is presented that relates to multiple components in energy generation/conversion systems and involves a wide range of tribo-corrosion mechanisms. These include cavitation erosion–corrosion of turbomachinery, abrasion–corrosion of downhole drilling equipment, erosion–corrosion of nuclear slurry handling components, bearing degradation of renewable energy systems (wind turbines), erosion–corrosion in nuclear power plants (Berg, H.-P., “Corrosion Mechanisms and Their Consequences for Nuclear Power Plants with Light Water Reactors,” Reliability and Risk Analysis: Theory and Applications, Vol. 2, 2009, pp. 57–68), erosion–corrosion in non-renewable energy systems (oil and gas), and tribochemical processes in internal combustion engines. Work from other research groups is also used to show the importance of understanding tribo-corrosion in energy generation/conversion systems.
