The Materials Innovation Centre (MatIC) – a long-term strategic partnership between TWI and the University of Leicester – is at the forefront of metallic materials research, focusing on the fundamental understanding of metallic materials, both theoretical and experimental, and how properties and performance are related to processing dependent microstructures, as well as computational, mechanised and material processing models.
The Centre’s work brings together experts from different organisations to undertake collaborative R&D projects enabled by public funding. It also supports TWI in developing a materials technology roadmap for its Industrial Members.
In celebration of this year’s International Corrosion Awareness Day, MatIC is presenting a TWI Innovation Network (TWIIN) webinar on Tuesday, 10 May 2022, from 10.00 to 11.30 am BST, entitled A Look at Corrosion Science and Engineering: Materials and Coatings Research.
With a focus on some of the technical highlights of a number of MatIC’s ongoing projects –including BattMan3D to develop 3D printed batteries, ProCoat to conceive advanced corrosion models and INHALE to create halide-free ionic liquids for electrodeposition – the webinar will be chaired by Centre Director Shiladitya Paul with presentations by MatIC team members Adriana Castro Vargas (Doctoral Researcher), Berenika Syrek-Gerstenkorn (Post-doctoral Research Associate), Kranthi Mariam (Marie Curie Fellow) and Vikas Kumar (Post-doctoral Research Associate).
The free-to-attend webinar is open to everyone and is particularly suited to corrosion and/or materials engineers, and electro-chemists and chemists working in the energy, marine, automotive and other sectors.
To book your place on the webinar, simply register in advance.
Dr Shiladitya Paul, Director of the Materials Innovation Centre said “The early detection of corrosion, and finding new ways to mitigate it, are ongoing issues in many industries, as is the need to find greener solutions that will help industry towards achieving net zero.” “With these factors in mind, MatIC is working on a number of projects that support addressing these challenges in the areas of materials and coatings, some of which we will present during the webinar”, he added.
