Metallurgist, Component Corrosion Failure Analysis Expert Consultant Resume
 

This expert specializes in materials selection for corrosive applications, corrosion failure analysis, and pyrophoric behavior of metals and alloys. Further expertise includes corrosion of titanium, zirconium, hafnium, niobium, tantalum and their alloys.

Additional areas of specialty include corrosion training, evaluation and selection of metallic and non-metallic materials, explosions and their prevention, and assessment of waste package materials for spent nuclear fuels. Further specialization includes technical marketing, chemical, hydrometallurgical, pulp & paper, and waste management industry expertise. Other related areas of specialty include corrosion control involving alloying and other metallurgical modifications. In addition, this associate specializes in areas related to inhibitors, electrochemical techniques, fabrication procedures, and applications of reactive metals. This expert also is highly skilled with passivity of iron-chromium alloys, thermoelectric behavior of ordered alloys, zirconium or hafnium reduction apparatus, and zirconium alloys in sulfide solutions. This expert is knowledgeable with zirconium and its alloys in nitric acid, corrosion resistance of zirconium, and methods to treat pyrophoric films on zirconium.

This expert has conducted numerous studies on topics related to corrosion properties of zirconium in chloride salt solutions, zirconium and columbium in simulated FGD scrubber solutions, electrochemical protection of zirconium in oxidizing hydrochloric acid solutions, and zirconium versus corrosive species in geothermal fluids. Further studies include corrosion test loop, electrochemical protection, zirconium for seawater and chloride solutions, zirconium in mineral acids, corrosion resistance, zirconium in process industries corrosion, and stress corrosion cracking susceptibility of zirconium. Additional research has been done relative to corrosion of zirconium and hafnium, corrosion of niobium and niobium alloys, chemical impurity challenges in material selection, and corrosion resistant metals for pulp and paper industry. Other studies include zirconium in the production of fertilizers, reactive metals in hydrometallurgical processes, performance of zirconium in bleaching solutions, use of reactive metals in environmentally safe oxidants, performance of zirconium in organics, and corrosion management with zirconium.

This expert is highly knowledgeable in areas including matching characteristics of your medium to capabilities of structural materials, tantalum, titanium, niobium, and zirconium use in the chemical processing industry. Other areas are application of zirconium in cooler condensers for nitric acid, titanium in chemical process industries, selecting performance alloys, reactive and refractory alloys, and corrosion of zircaloy cladding under repository conditions. Further knowledge includes the effects of tin content in zirconium, metallic materials for nitric acid service, fluorides from overlooked sources, understanding corrosion behavior from electrochemical measurements, and immersion tests.

Chief Corrosion Engineer, Wah Chang, Albany, Oregon

Established a corrosion group with properly equipped facilities. Conducted numerous projects to better understand the corrosion properties of titanium, zirconium, hafnium, niobium, tantalum and their alloys. Used the generated data to identify similarities and differences among these materials. Developed suitable applications for these materials in chemical, hydrometallurgical, pulp and paper, and waste management industries. Developed corrosion control measures for these materials in challenging environments, including alloying and other metallurgical modifications, inhibitors, electrochemical techniques, and fabrication procedures. Identified root causes of many unique failures. Started a new task group on reactive metals at NACE. Organized two international conferences on the corrosion and applications of reactive metals.

Patent holder, and has published more than 80 technical papers in international periodicals, conference proceedings, handbooks, and encyclopedia. Topics includes passivity of iron-chromium alloys, thermoelectric behavior of ordered alloys, zirconium
