Organizaton(s) involved: 

The research under this grant covers projects in the following areas: (i) passive film properties and their influence on the initiation of localized corrosion processes; (ii) factors influencing the evolution and distribution of corrosion damage, in particular during the crevice corrosion of nickel-chromium-molybdenum and titanium alloys; (iii) the development and application of microscopic techniques, in particular atom probe microscopy and X-ray tomography; (iv) neutron reflectometry investigations of the properties of buried interfaces; (v) electrochemistry/corrosion of carbon steel in aqueous sulphide systems.
