Tribo-corrosion in offshore applications

Wear modelling - Kannaki Pondicherry

Corrosive nature of the seawater and the abrasive nature of sand are the two worst nightmares for structural materials in offshore applications. Material loss individually due to corrosion and wear are usually determined at lab-scales. However, the primary objective of the present research is to investigating the material loss under the simultaneously action of corrosion and wear i.e. tribocorrosion, particularly in wear-resistant steel grades essentially employed in mining, dredging, etc.
