Scope While the term corrosion is typically associated with metals and alloys, these are not the only materials that are susceptible to deterioration in an environment. Non-metallic materials, such as plastics, concrete, polymeric coatings, ceramics, and composites, fulfill unique roles in a materials portfolio and are important alternatives to metals. This session invites submission in the suggested topic areas of: understanding mechanisms of non-metallic material-environmental interactions, the effect of environmental degradation on a material’s properties, latest developments in testing techniques and prediction methods, and approaches to corrosion mitigation for non-metallic materials. Emphasis will be on environmental effects on cementitious and other composite materials and on environmental interactions of novel anti-corrosion coatings.
