NSIRC PhD Students' Research Makes a Significant Impact on Industry at EuroCorr-2023
London, UK - Muhammad Haris, an NSIRC PhD student, recently presented his research at the European Federation of Corrosion EuroCorr-2023 in Brussels, Belgium. His study investigated the effect of rivet coating on self-piercing rivet (SPR) joint performance for dissimilar materials joints and received positive feedback from fellow researchers and industry experts.
Corrosion is a significant problem when joining muti-materials using mechanical fastening techniques. To address this issue, the research investigates the impact of a coating on the mechanical strength of SPR joints. The results from Muhammad's investigations at NSIRC may have important implications for the development of more durable and reliable joining techniques for muti-materials.
The research conducted by NSIRC PhD students is making a significant impact on the industry, supported by their supervisors and industry partners. Thanks to the input of his supervisors Lorna Anguilano and Sullivan Smith, and with funding awarded by the Armourers & Brasiers Travel Grant, Muhammad was able to attend this prestigious conference in corrosion sciences.
Published on his LinkedIn account, Muhammad extended his thanks, in particular, to the automotive corrosion session chair Elizabeth Szala and co-chair Jean-Louis Baudoin, for their discussion about the current and future challenges faced in corrosion protection technologies.
The National Structural Integrity Research Centre and TWI Core Research Programme play a vital role in enabling students and supporting research in this area. Contributions by these programmes have resulted in significant advancements in corrosion protection.
Since 2012, NSIRC PhD students have been at the forefront of corrosion research, and their work is essential for the industry's growth and development. Their research findings have already impacted the industry significantly, and they will continue to do so in the future.
