Advanced Corrosion Management

Event Date 14 – 15 May, Location – Antwerp, Belgium

Masterclass Overview
The Masterclass will provide deep insight in knowledge-based and integrated corrosion prediction systems, corrosion knowledge engineering and Machine Learning (ML) predictive analytics models of corrosion management and present case studies that will be shared and discussed with the attendees. The Masterclass will also share and discuss a number of examples of successful corrosion management strategies (onshore gas processing plant, CUI and stray current corrosion of duplex stainless steel pipelines).
