This free evening event includes two presentations, followed by a networking reception at 19:30.
Characterising marine archaeological iron degradation: worth a shot?, Dr Eleanor Schofield, Mary Rose Trust
The excavation of Henry VIII's Mary Rose in 1982 produced a vast collection of Tudor iron artefacts, mostly in the form of cannons and shot. Iron artefacts can survive in marine environments where the exposure to oxygen is limited. However, the incorporation of chlorine during burial can make postexcavation conservation particularly challenging. This presentation will describe how different corrosion treatments on iron shot have been explored using synchrotron light, and how this information will inform our future conservation strategies.
Coatings and Cathodic Protection – The Dynamic Duo, Jim Glynn, Institute of Corrosion, and BEANNY Ltd
The presentation will take a high level, light hearted look at how these two corrosion control tools make the world a better and safer place both onshore and offshore, at least... most of the time. Cathodic Protection (CP) and Coating example applications will be drawn from a number of industry sectors, plus an actual offshore case history 'A Tale of Two North Sea Structures'...
The event is open to SCI, ICorr, IOM3, LMS and TWI members and guests.
