Prof. Damien FÉRON
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.
WP 4 prizes for the best two oral presentations of the Nuclear Corrosion session during EUROCORR 2016 in Montpellier have been awarded to:
|1st: `Using tapered specimen to study the effect of hydrogen on SCC initiation in Alloy 182 under BWR condition`, by Juxing Bai (see photo), Stefan Ritter, Hans-Peter Seifert (all Paul Scherrer Institut, Switzerland), and Sannakaisa Virtanen (University of Erlangen, Germany)|
|2nd: `Pitting corrosion modelling by means of a stochastic cellular automata based model`, by Cristian Felipe Pérez-Brokate (see photo, CEA - SCCME, France), Dung di Caprio (CNRS - Chimie ParisTech, France), Damien Féron (CEA - SCCME, France), Jacques de Lamare (CEA - SCCME, France), and Annie Chaussé (Université d’Evry Val d’Essonne, France)|
