The first presentation of The Young Engineers Program (YEP) also start at CB&I in London with an excellent presentation on the Basics of Corrosion by Jane Lomas. The event was opened by Bill hedges of BP and continues through the year with 9 modules including a Case Study which the delegates will present back at the London Branch meeting in November 2018.

 The discussion was all encompassing but dealt with the basics of corrosion from first principals;

  • Basic Principles
  • Anodic and Cathodic Areas
  • What Controls Corrosion rates
  • Corrosive Environments
  • Common Types of Corrosion
    • Pitting
    • Crevice attack
    • Galvanic corrosion
    • Stray current corrosion
    • Stress corrosion cracking
    • Microbially induced corrosion


The group enjoyed a networking session after the meeting at a local restaurant courtesy of The Institute of Corrosion.

The next YEP meeting will be Welding and NDT Techniques to be presented by Alan Denney on Wednesday 21st February at CB&I in London.

We are extremely grateful to Jane Lomas and Sadegh Parvizi at CB&I and all the other members of ICorr that give up their time freely to assist our Young Engineers with their career development
