From the Editor

Well another year nearly over, and what an eventful year it has been. The pandemic has seen major challenges for our industry, and for the Institute with the move to online meetings. However, we have managed to keep the magazine being printed, unlike other publications which have had to move to online versions.

This issue contains four technical articles covering different areas, as well as the now regular, “Ask the Expert” and “Fellow’s Corner” columns, and can I remind readers to send in their technical questions for our experts to answer. There is an article describing the advantages of a new class of probes for corrosion inspection, and Simon Daly has an update on the work being carried out to harmonise specifications in the Oil & Gas industry. The other articles cover corrosion control in storage tanks and corrosion assessment techniques for reinforced concrete structures.

Finally, I would like to offer my good wishes for the festive season to all readers.
