DoD assesses corrosion potential on F-35 and F-22
CorrDefense    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The U.S. Department of Defense Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office, under Director Daniel J. Dunmire, submitted a full corrosion-related assessment of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter to Congress. As part of its study, the DoD Corrosion Office also analyzed a host of corrosion-related findings on the F-22A Raptor aircraft and the implications of those findings for the F-35 (also known as the F-35 Lightning II). Congress directed the DoD to perform the study as part of the 2010 National Defense Authorization Act. More

World pledges $780 million for new shell for Chernobyl nuclear plant
Voice of America    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The effect of Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant reaches around the world to help raise funds for a new containment shell for the stricken nuclear power plant at Chernobyl, Ukraine. Prior to the 25th anniversary of the nuclear power plant explosion at Chernobyl, world leaders pledged to provide $780 million for the construction of a shelter designed to house the toxic remains for another century. Rain, rust and snow have weakened the first shelter that was built 25 years ago. More

US DOT gives over $2 million to states to improve pipeline safety
The Cypress Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration announced $2.010 million in grants for 24 states to improve pipeline safety. The grants will help states establish or improve underground pipeline damage prevention programs. The U.S. DOT is providing grants to projects that involve the key elements of effective pipeline damage prevention programs, including increased communication between pipeline operators and stakeholders, the use of technology in locating pipelines and partnerships in employee training and public education.

Canada's sewer pipe inspection improves along with technology
Journal of Commerce    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Although they aren't a visible part of the public infrastructure, Canada's sewer systems are important. And, like crumbling roads and bridges, sewer pipe is subject to wear and tear that needs to be maintained. Ashley Rammeloo, a sewer operations engineer in Canada, said the typical life span of concrete sewer pipe is between 80 and 100 years, although there is brick pipe in Ontario that is 150 years old.

Data miners dig for corrosion resistance
Penn State Live    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A better understanding of corrosion resistance may be possible using a data-mining tool, according to Penn State material scientists. This tool may also aid research in other areas where massive amounts of information exist. Kamrun Nahar, research associate, Center for Neural Engineering, along with Mirna Urquidi-Macdonald, professor of engineering science and mechanics, used data mining to find the most relevant information about the corrosion-resistant properties of Alloy 22, an alloy candidate for nuclear-waste canisters. They reported their findings in the latest issue of Corrosion Science. More

SAIC to devise corrosion life cycle research program for DOD
Washington Technology    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Science Applications International Corp. will devise a life cycle research program for the U.S. Department of Defense under a five-year U.S. Navy award valued at more than $41 million. The SeaPort e-contract task order, awarded by the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Division, calls for SAIC to create a scientific research program that will help prolong the life of equipment and extend infrastructure life cycle sustainment enhancements, according to an April 14 company announcement. A 2009 DOD Cost of Corrosion study estimated the Navy spends more than $6 billion annually to deal with corrosion and other forms of materials degradation. More

First official monument in US being restored
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Even then, 235 years ago, Congress worried about spending. Officially it was still the Continental Congress when it approved the new nation's first official monument, a monument that ended up in New York City. The monument honors Gen. Richard Montgomery, who died in battle in December 1775. The monument has recently received repairs from aging and corrosive materials. More
