Research project

Recently, I am working on the corrosion behavior of Ni-Fe-Cr base alloy widely used in petrochemical and chemical industries. A variation of microstructure during the production processing influences the corrosion properties of the finished tube. The objective of this project is to investigate the influence of microstructure on the corrosion performance of Ni-Fe-Cr base alloy by using multiple electrochemical corrosion techniques, and then optimize the processing to obtain the desirable texture and microstructure for further improvement of corrosion resistance in various service environments.
