Northeastern University Joint Division



The research directions of the Northeastern University Joint Division mainly focus on the core scientific and technological issues of corrosion and protection for the materials. According to the different characteristic corrosion environments such as ocean, deep sea, poles, high temperature and the presence of microorganisms, we conduct researches on the development of corrosion test equipments, material corrosion mechanisms and corresponding protection technologies. We have advanced the design and preparation of corrosion-resistant functional materials, novel protective coatings, and better understanding for the principles of corrosion monitoring, detection, and anti-corrosion technologies for engineering applications. The major research interests of our division include: surface treatment of light alloys, corrosion and protection in oil and gas industry and marine environment, microbiologically influenced corrosion, and high temperature corrosion and protection.
