Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, the development of artificial intelligence (AI) has attracted significant attention around the world. Given its superior capability in data processing and analysis, AI has also facilitated the research of materials science by greatly saving the time and efforts required in the design of novel materials and structures, as well as the analysis of material properties using characterization statistics, which brings new opportunities in this subject. In this Special Issue, we focus on the application of AI in the research of composite materials, which includes, but is not limited to, the AI-assisted design of composites for certain properties, prediction of composite properties by AI-related techniques, AI-assisted failure analysis of composites, and AI in the data processing of composite-based electronics. Manuscripts on the recent advances in this field are welcome in this Special Issue.

Oil well cement is prone to corrosion and damage in carbon dioxide (CO2) acidic gas wells. In order to improve the anti-corrosion ability of oil well cement, polymer resin was used as the anti-corrosion material. The effect of polymer resin on the mechanical and corrosion properties of oil well cement was studied. The corrosion law of polymer anti-corrosion cement in an acidic gas environment was studied. The long-term corrosion degree of polymer anti-corrosion cement was evaluated using an improved neural network model. The cluster particle algorithm (PSO) was used to improve the accuracy of the neural network model. The results indicate that in acidic gas environments, the compressive strength of polymer anti-corrosion cement was reduced under the effect of CO2, and the corrosion depth was increased. The R2 of the prediction model PSO-BPNN3 is 0.9970, and the test error is 0.0136. When corroded for 365 days at 50 °C and 25 MPa pressure of CO2, the corrosion degree of the polymer anti-corrosion cement was 43.6%. The corrosion depth of uncorroded cement stone is 76.69%, which is relatively reduced by 33.09%. The corrosion resistance of cement can be effectively improved by using polymer resin. Using the PSO-BP neural network to evaluate the long-term corrosion changes of polymer anti-corrosion cement under complex acidic gas conditions guides the evaluation of its corrosion resistance.
