Abstract: Acoustic Emission (AE) monitoring is an effective tool for prioritising more conventional non-destructive inspections of above ground tanks, either process or storage vessels. Results obtained from AE monitoring may be assessed against an existing data bank permitting plant management to prioritise maintenance to tanks with high active corrosion rates or leaks. AE results may be used to extend inspection periods of tanks without leaks or active corrosion. This paper covers the theory of AE leak detection and corrosion monitoring including some background research into the difference between AE from corrosion and leaks. It looks at the equipment used and provides a summary of tank test results conducted by ATTAR and other overseas organisations as well as reviewing AE tank inspection economics.

Abstract: The austenitic cladding of liquid radioactive waste underground storage tanks was recently required to be under continuous corrosion surveillance with aim to monitor its corrosion stability until all radioactive waste will be processed and safely stored. Tanks are intended primarily to be used for long-term storage of radioactive waste water solutions and nascent sediments. Tanks are components of technology designed for post-processing of radioactive sediments by means of cement matrix fixation. This paper is dealing with an example of metallografical methods focused on corrosion processes monitoring using the special surveillance program. The brief information is presented for the preparation of specific long-run corrosion programme and experimental material samples evaluation. General view of the monitoring system is shown in Fig. 1.

Abstract: As one of the key steps in the process of durability design and redesign, corrosion monitoring of reinforcement in concrete is of importance. To ensure the concrete durability of the quay structure, corrosion monitoring systems are utilized in Port Said East Container Terminal - Phase 2, Egypt. Embedded half-cell potential reference electrodes and anode ladder systems were used together. Early stage corrosion monitoring data in a precast slab is presented. Comparison of half-cell potential and anode ladder system data give some comprehensive understanding of the mechanism of the corrosion monitoring.

Abstract: Due to the excellent anticorrosion performance, zinc-aluminum coatings are widely used in a variety of structural applications, and most are exposed to atmosphere especially marine atmosphere. In this paper, weight loss experiment and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy technology were used to comparatively study the corrosion behavior of zinc-aluminum coatings in stimulant marine atmosphere. Experimental results show that the anticorrosion performance of GL coating was better than that of GF coating and the length of drying period had obviously influence on the corrosion behavior of GF and GL coating.

Abstract: In general, magnesium metal is not used as uncoated material on account of its corrosion characteristic. This work was done by preparing 99.99% pure magnesium coating films by RF magnetron sputtering onto SPCC substrates [1]. The individual preparation conditions of gas pressures and bias voltages were 1×10-2 ~ 1×10-3 Torr and 0V ~ -300V, respectively. The analysis about crystal orientation, morphology and electrochemical characteristic of Mg thin films was performed by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) etc.. It is as a results of experiment that the morphology of the sputtered films changed from a columnar structure to a granular structure when Ar gas pressure increased or bias voltage decreased. Also, the prepared Mg thin film’s morphology did not have defects and pinholes, and the corrosion resistance was improved by the formation of a homogeneous passive layer.

Abstract: To monitor the wear and degradation on a pipe by corrosion during a plant operation, the vibration signals were measured by an accelerometer and analyzed by several analysis techniques. From the conventional methods, it was difficult to identify the wear and degradation on the pipe. And hence, the time-frequency distribution (TFD) and the adaptive cone-kernel distribution (ACKD) devised for reducing the interfering cross-terms are applied to the acquired data. They can provide the distinguishing peak patterns between the normal and corrosion signals.

Abstract: In this paper, some smart sensors or material used to make the smart sensors, such as piezoresistance composite, piezoelectric polymer, piezoelectric cement and corrosion monitoring sensor, developed by Harbin Institute of Technology were introduced. Piezoresistance composite is made with carbon nanotube and resin, one character of the work is the carbon nanotube is orientation arranged by magnetic field. Piezoelectric polymer is made with PZT particles and PVDF, in order to improve its performance a few carbon nanotube are also mixed in the composite. Piezoelectric cement is one kind of sensing material whose primary raw materials are cement and piezoelectric ceramic particles (or fiber). The sensing performance of piezoelectric cement is coming from its functional phase, the piezoelectric ceramic. The corrosion monitoring sensor is made with solid-state reference electrode, whose surface is one kind of binary alloy membrane produced with physical vapor deposition technology. The main producing technology, performance and applications of above sensors were introduced in this paper.
