Webinar 1

Advances in Materials, Coatings and Corrosion Research

In my role as the Editor-in-Chief of Corrosion Section of Materials journal of MDPI, it is a great pleasure to welcome you to the Webinar, Advances in Materials, Coatings and Corrosion Research. Corrosion of engineering alloys and its mitigation measures cost any developed economy ~4% of their GDP (e.g. ~$280b annually to USA, and ~$8b to Australia). Traditional measures such as development of corrosion-resistant alloys and conventional coatings have brought about significant corrosion mitigation. However, exploring a disruptive development of novel materials and coatings for durable corrosion mitigation is immensely attractive, and hence the topic of this webinar.

-- Prof. Dr. Raman Singh

Chair: Prof. Dr. Raman Singh

Date & Time: 22 MAY 2020 3:00pm (CEST)

Webinar ID: 814-2687-4917

Webinar secretariat: [email protected]

The following experts will present and speak:

Prof. Dr. Raman Singh

Assistant Prof. Dr. Marjetka Conradi

Prof. Dr. Marina Cabrini

Professor Raman Singh’s primary research interests are in the relationship of nano-micro structure, environment-assisted degradation and fracture of metallic and composite materials, and nanotechnology for advanced mitigation of such degradations. He has also worked extensively on use of advanced materials (e.g. graphene) for corrosion mitigation, stress corrosion cracking, and corrosion and corrosion-mitigation of magnesium alloys. He has a PhD in Metallurgical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. He worked as a scientist at Indian Atomic Energy, University of New South Wales and Monash University in Australia. Prof Singh’s professional distinctions and recognitions include: Editor of a book on Cracking of Welds (CRC Press), Lead Editor of a book on Non-destructive Evaluation of Corrosion (Wiley), Editor-in-Chief of two journals, member the Editorial Boards of a few journals, chairperson of a few international conferences and regular plenary/keynote speaker at international conferences, over 225 peer-reviewed international journal publications, 15 book chapters and over 100 reviewed conference publications, and several competitive research grants.

Marjetka Conradi obtained her PhD degree in 2003 at University of Ljubljana. Since 2009 she works as a scientific collaborator at Institute of Metals and Technology. Since 2014 she also works as an Assistant Professor at University of Maribor. In 2005, she was awarded by Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. In 2007 she was awarded by Slovene Science Foundation, Prometej znanosti za odličnost v komuniciranju znanosti for promoting science through monography Physics. In the last decade, her main research topics are polymer nanocomposites (physical, mechanical properties/testing), corrosion of metallic materials, corrosion protection coatings, biocompatible materials, coatings. Within this research, she has published a series of publications in high ranked magazines.

Marina Cabrini is a Professor of Science and Technology of Materials at the Mechanical Engineering Faculty of the University of Bergamo since 2001. Her courses are “Metallic materials” and “Polymer, composites and ceramics” in Mechanical Engineering, “Biomaterials” for Technology Engineering for Health and “Electrochemistry and Electrochemical Technologies” for PhD in Engineering and Applied Science. Her research activity is on electrochemistry and corrosion, primary focused on the environmental assisted cracking of traditional and innovative steels for the oil and gas industry. She made some researches on biomaterials, on electrochemical characterization of the kinetic of passivity film formation on rebar in concrete, on corrosion inhibitors for chloride contaminated concrete and on the corrosion evaluation of carbon steel in CCTS (Carbon Capture Transport and Storage). Nowadays she is working on the corrosion behavior of aluminium, titanium and nickel alloys obtained by means of Direct Metal Laser Sintering in collaboration with Polytechnic of Turin and Centre for Sustainable Future of IIT of Turin, on the corrosion and stress corrosion cracking of aluminium alloys welded by means of Friction Stir Welding in collaboration with the Mechanical Technologies group of the University of Bergamo.

Webinar Content

On Friday 22 May 2020, the first webinar series on Materials – an Open Access Journal by MDPI was organised. The topic focuses on the Advances in Materials, Coatings, and Corrosion Research.

Corrosion of engineering alloys and its mitigation measures generate high costs for any developed economy and traditional measures have brought about significant corrosion mitigation. Therefore, exploring a disruptive approach in developing novel materials and coatings for durable corrosion mitigation is in demand.

The webinar was chaired by Prof. Dr. Raman Singh, Monash University, Australia. His primary research interests are in the relationship of nano-micro structure, environment-assisted degradation, fracture of metallic and composite materials, and nanotechnology for advanced mitigation of such degradations. Prof. Dr. Singh welcomed the audience to the subject and introduced the two expert researchers: Assistant Prof. Dr. Marjetka Conradi, University of Maribor, Slovenia, spoke about the Manipulation of TiO2 Nanoparticle / Polymer Coatings Wettability and Friction in Different Environments; whereas Prof. Dr. Marina Cabrini, Mechanical Engineering Faculty of the University of Bergamo, Italy, focused her presentation mainly on Corrosion Behavior of New Alloys Obtained by Additive Manufacturing. Their presentations were each followed by a discussion and Q&A session moderated by Prof. Dr. Raman Singh.

The webinar was offered via Zoom and required registration to attend, however, the full recording can be found here on Sciforum website.
