Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of this Special Issue is to summarize and highlight the latest achievements in the literature, experimental work, and analytical techniques in the field of corrosion science connected with surface engineering. Though there have been good monographs, books, and articles on similar topics in the past, this issue will be dedicated to the recently developed as well as to the most often applied and paramount methods, techniques, and instrumentations that not only elucidate the corrosion phenomenon, its inhibition, as well as its kinetics but inform about proper surface engineering to decrease and control these undesired phenomena.

The corrosion phenomenon is well known all over the world; it merits far-flung scientific understanding. The scope of corrosion covers a wide range of phenomena: general corrosion, pitting and stress corrosion, cracking, passivity, high temperature oxidation (to mention only some of them), as well as their inhibition, with emphasis on the mechanisms and methods used to control the corrosion. In order to achieve successful results, the cooperation of scientists and industrial specialists is necessary.

Surface engineering, which is an important tool to modify the surface properties and the appearance (with no change in the bulk composition), to provide protection from environmental damage, to enhance mechanical and physical performance by modifications (coating, chemical and physical deposition, anodizing, thermal spraying, mechanical deformation, etc.), includes technologies that convert the very upper surface layer of the substrate that results in increased anticorrosion characteristics. The achieved altered properties depend on the techniques and parameters, on the surface characteristics, on the metal composition and microstructure, and the surface roughness.

The Corrosion Science and Surface Engineering Special Issue would like to inspire engineers, scientists, and specialists working on the topics mentioned above, who will contribute to this important topic with reports on their own work done in the field of corrosion, corrosion inhibition by special surface treatments, as well as in surface characterization. Review papers are also welcome.

We have to keep in mind that the environmental impact of chemicals could be significantly decreased, and the energy consumption and CO2 emission could also be decreased with special surface treatments.

Original papers and critical reviews are awaited in topics such as:

  • New appearance in general and localized corrosion, corrosion resistant alloys;
  • Principles and modes of corrosion inhibition by surface engineering;
  • Recently developed surface modification techniques (chemical, physical, electrochemical, etc.);
  • Newest results in surface coatings with microcapsules of self-healing and slow release activity;
  • Most effective characterization and testing of surfaces before and after modification.

The objective of this work is to investigate the magnetite-accelerated corrosion phenomenon of SA508 used as tubesheet material in simulated secondary side environments of pressurized water reactors through immersion and electrochemical tests. The presence of sulfate ions induced the fast growth of a corrosion product layer on SA508, and this phenomenon was accelerated when the SA508 was coupled to magnetite. From the perspective of electrochemical behavior, it was found that SA508 behaves as an anodic member in the coupling system with magnetite, resulting in an increased corrosion rate. Full article

Influence of LBE Temperatures on the Microstructure and Properties of Crystalline and Amorphous Multiphase Ceramic Coatings

An Al2O3–TiO2 amorphous composite coating with a thickness of 100–120 μm was fabricated on China low activation martensitic steel (CLAM steel) by oxygen acetylene flame spraying technology and the laser in-situ reaction method. We investigated the microstructures and mechanical properties of the coating after liquid lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) alloy corrosion under different temperatures for 300 h and found that the corrosion temperature of the LBE had no observable effect on the microstructure and chemical phase of the Al2O3–TiO2 amorphous composite coatings. However, the mechanical properties (micro-hardness and shear strength) of the Al2O3–TiO2 multiphase coating deteriorated slightly with the increase in the immersion temperature of the LBE. As a result of oxygen acetylene flame spraying and laser in-situ reaction technology, it was found that the Al2O3–TiO2 amorphous composite coating exhibits an excellent LBE corrosion resistance, which is a candidate structural material for the accelerator-driven subcritical system (ADS) to handle nuclear waste under extreme conditions.
