Diagnostics of Materials Corrosion-Hydrogen Degradation

Scientific credo: Investigation of in-service degradation regularities and mechanism of structural materials physical and mechanical properties and workability characteristics under simultaneous effect of corrosion-hydrogen degradation and mechanical loading and development of mechanics-electrochemical methods of diagnostics and prediction of technical state of materials and engineering structures.

The main directions of investigations:

  • a) transformation of metal microstructure with taking into account of temperature of service;
  • b) technologies of formation of surface nanocrystalline structures and its role in formation of resistance to corrosion-hydrogen environments;
  • c) in-service degradation of mechanical, corrosion and corrosion-mechanical properties; d) effect of in-service factors on materials degradation;
  • e) role of dissipated damaging in degradation of physical and mechanical properties;
  • е) modeling of in-service degradation of materials.

The objects of investigations: engineering metal structures of long-term service in the following field of industry: oil and gas; chemistry, energy, machine building, construction building (pipelines, reservoirs, columns, towers, frame constructions, equipments etc)
