Research output: Contribution to JournalConference Article

Abstract

The second AfriCORR took place at Midrand near Johannesburg from 27-29 July 2016. The first paper, a plenary, was given by Alison Davenport (University of Birmingham, UK) and was entitled 'Shedding Light on Corrosion'. She described how an expensive (even exotic), very advanced technology, namely high-intensity X-rays generated at synchrotron facilities, can be used for in situ time-dependent characterization of localised corrosion processes. Desmond Edem Primus Klenam (University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa) presented the 'Results of an investigation into the corrosion behaviour of three standard ferrite-pearlite railway axle steels for commuter trains in South Africa'. Darelle T. Janse van Rensburg (University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa) presented 'A preliminary updated atmospheric corrosivity map of South Africa - based on historical data'. John Onam Onyatta (University of Nairobi, Kenya) presented a 'Review of atmospheric corrosion studies in Kenya: past, present and future'. Reza Javaherdashti (Shakhes Pajouh Research Institute, Iran) delivered a plenary lecture on 'Application of Corrosion Knowledge Management (CKM) into the management of microbial corrosion'.
