Sankara Papavinasam, Ph.D., Fellow of NACE, Fellow of ASTM, is the president of CorrMagnet Consulting Inc. Over the past 25+ years, he has led several joint industry projects as well as individual client projects with more than 50 Oil and Gas Companies globally and has developed solutions and insight to control internal and external corrosion.
He has authored the book, Corrosion Control in the Oil and Gas Industry and developed several software products. He has also appeared as subject matter expert before National Academy of Sciences Committee, Washington DC, USA and Canadian Senate Committee, Canadian Parliament, Ottawa, Canada on crude oil corrosivity.
Sheldon Dean is currently President of Dean Corrosion Technology, Inc. a consulting firm providing technical assistance to the process industries and others with corrosion issues.
Dr. Dean was employed with Air Products in the Corporate Engineering Department for 26 years and was responsible for materials of construction and corrosion engineering. He was the first Air Products Fellow. He was chosen as the editor-in-chief of the Journal of ASTM International from 2003 to 2010. He was previously with Olin Corporation, Metals Research Laboratories in New Haven, Connecticut spending 11 years in metal finishing and corrosion research. Before that, he spent 3 years with the International Nickel Company Research Laboratory in Bayonne, New Jersey in the Corrosion Section.
Dr. Dean received an AB in Physics from Middlebury College and an SB and Doctorate degree from MIT in Chemical Engineering. He served on the Board of Directors of the Materials Technology Institute and the American Society of Testing and Materials. He is also active in the National Association of Corrosion Engineers. He has been a member of the USA Technical Advisory Group for the International Organization for Standardization Technical Committee on Corrosion of Metals (ISO/TC156). He is also a member of several other technical and professional societies. He has published 118 articles, edited or co-edited ten books and received 12 patents.
Dr. Dean has been active in ASTM for more than 50 years and has been the primary author of seven standards, including ASTM G3, G102, and G215. He has also made contributions to many other standards in the field of corrosion testing and electrochemical corrosion testing.
Harvey Hack, PhD, Corrosion Electrochemist. Harvey is a Northrop Grumman Fellow who has worked at Northrop Grumman Corporation Undersea Systems for 24 years preventing corrosion of underwater systems. Before this he worked for what is now the Naval Surface Warfare Center where he did marine corrosion research, electrochemical research, and failure analyses. He is internationally recognized as a corrosion expert and was Chairman of the Board of ASTM International, President of NACE International, and President of the Council of Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards. Harvey is a Fellow of ASTM, NACE, the Institute of Corrosion and the Washington Academy of Sciences. He has won many awards, including the ASTM William T. Cavanaugh and Frank W. Reinhart Awards and the NACE T.J. Hull and Distinguished Service Awards.
Harvey has published roughly 100 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals on corrosion and corrosion electrochemistry topics, holds several patents, and has been an active participant in technical societies, including being Chairman of ASTM Committee G01 on Corrosion of Metals, Chairman of the NACE Committee on Marine Corrosion, Chairman of the NACE Certification Committee, and has authored or provided chapters for 7 books on corrosion topics.
He taught a corrosion course at the US Naval Academy, spent 12 years as the Chairman of the USA Task Advisory Group and head of USA delegation to ISO Technical Committee 156 on Corrosion of Metals and was a feature writer for Corrosion Protection in Underwater Magazine for 5 years. He is a NACE Certified Corrosion Specialist, Cathodic Protection Specialist, and Coating Inspector Level III. He is currently on the Executive Committee of ASTM F42 on Additive Manufacturing and Convener of ISO TC156 Working Group 1 on Corrosion Terminology.
ASTM is one of the world's largest voluntary standards development organizations. ASTM standards have grown to be among the world's most widely used and accepted documents. The 82-volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards contains over 13,000 standards written by 34,000 members on our 140 technical committees. These standards are widely used throughout the world as the basis of purchasing and other contracts, codes, laws and regulations.
ASTM Committee G01 on Corrosion of Metals developed the standards used in this course. For more information on Committee G01, contact Krista Robbins or (610) 832-9689 or go to our G01 technical committee page.
ASTM can bring this course to your site for groups. On-site training courses can also be tailored to meet your specific needs. For more information, please contact sales here or call 1-877-909-ASTM.
Learning will be assessed through a series of question and answer sessions.
