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.

For further technical details, contact the G01.10 subcommittee chair, Charlie Marsh, Ph.D., Materials Research Engineer (CEERD-CF-M), Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory, 2902 Newmark, PO Box 9005, Champaign, IL 61824-9005 (217/373-6764). For Committee G01 meeting or membership information, contact Staff Manager Bruce Noe, ASTM (610/832-9719). //
