||The purpose of this symposium is to bring together researchers, practitioners, and professionals from academia, industry, and government to discuss the latest research findings, technological developments, and practical solutions related to the environmental degradation and corrosion of advanced new materials, including structural materials, functional materials and additive manufactured materials.
The symposium will focus on the following topics:
Corrosion mechanisms and kinetics in advanced materials under different environmental conditions, such as environmental assisted cracking (EAC) and localized corrosion in aqueous, irradiation, high-pressure, acidic, alkaline, and saline environments.
Environmental degradation of advanced materials caused by various factors at room or low temperatures, including electrochemical reactions, mechanical stress, and exposure to radiation and pollutants.
Advanced techniques for characterizing and monitoring the corrosion and degradation of advanced materials, such as electrochemical methods, microscopy, and spectroscopy.
Computational modeling and simulation of corrosion kinetics and thermodynamics, including density functional theory, molecular dynamics, kinetic Monte Carlo, CALPHAD, and phase-field methods.
Novel coating materials and surface engineering for preventing or mitigating corrosion and environmental degradation of advanced material systems, such as corrosion inhibitors, protective coatings, and self-healing materials.
