Understanding corrosion remains an important part of TWI’s work, especially for industries such as marine, oil and gas and power, where subsea structures are particularly at risk of corrosion. As a result, our experts frequently attend events to present their latest findings on corrosion.
Earlier this year, TWI Principal Project Leader, Dr Shiva Majidnia CEng presented a seminar on corrosion under insulation (CUI), where she detailed detection technologies including ultrasonic testing, guided wave testing, magnetic flux leakage and thermography, as well as speaking on emerging corrosion detection technologies.
Elsewhere, last year saw TWI expert, Joanna Nicholas fly out to Kuwait, where she was invited to provide a keynote address at the 5th NACE Kuwait Corrosion Conference and Exhibition. Joanna’s presentation drew on 70 years of TWI knowledge to detail failure analysis methods, and how experts from different fields should come together as multi-disciplinary teams to investigate failures.
These knowledge-sharing exercises have continued into 2020, despite the challenges that this year has brought, with free webinars including a recent presentation by TWI’s Carol Johnston looking into ‘Structural Integrity and Fatigue in Offshore Wind.’
