EFC Working Party 4: Nuclear Corrosion

 

Mission:

  • To provide links between European teams and EU-funded programs in the nuclear corrosion field, with an opening on to the world;
  • To initiate and stimulate opportunities of exchange of scientific and technical subjects related to nuclear corrosion, particularly on today's main nuclear research areas (waste systems, water reactors, generation IV and fusion reactors);
  • To promote corrosion science and technical developments through events such as seminars, workshops, publications, etc.
     

NEWs:

  • For the first time the Henri Coriou Award for outstanding contributions to corrosion science and engineering in the nuclear field has been given during the EUROCORR 2016 in Montpellier to:

    Prof. David Tice (see photo), Amec Foster Wheeler, UK.

    Short CV: He is Amec’s Chief Corrosion Scientist, has published numerous papers and led a number of research programmes on various aspects of environmentally-assisted cracking (EAC) in high-temperature LWR environments, including corrosion fatigue and stress corrosion cracking over a period of 35 years. He has directed a number of major projects on corrosion fatigue of ferritic and austenitic stainless steels. He was a former chairman of the ‘Int. Co-operative Group on EAC in Water Reactor Environments (ICG-EAC)’ and is a member of the ‘EPRI Expert Panel on Environmentally-Assisted Fatigue’. He is also a visiting Professor at The University of Manchester’s Materials Performance Centre responsible for technical direction of collaborative research on corrosion and EAC.
