Alloys and Composites Corrosion and Mechanical Properties
With the development and exploration of marine resources, the research on underwater robots and submarines is increasing. However, high-performance materials are necessary for the safe service of ocean equipment, constraining the development of marine equipment. For example, for a steel-structure submarine, its working environment runs through all corrosion areas of the ocean (atmospheric area, splash area, tidal range area and full immersion area, etc.) and interaction of multiple strong fields such as fluid, temperature, stress and electromagnetic fields. The problems of corrosion, fatigue and other failure behaviors in the shell, frame, pipeline and other parts result in the decrease in the strength of the steel structure, leading to faults and accidents.
Therefore, research on corrosion behavior and protection methods of high-performance alloys and composites materials are becoming more and more important. This research Topic aims to collate new research results on the compositional design of alloys, material processing technologies, novel composites, and coatings to improve the anti-corrosion and mechanical properties of ocean materials. Original research, reviews, mini-reviews, and perspective papers are all welcome.
Papers submitted for the Topic will be considered for publication concerning corrosion properties, biofilms, coatings, wear, fatigue mechanics, plasticity, alloys, composites, mechanical properties and processing techniques. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
- Corrosion property of alloys in marine environment;
- Marine structural materials;
- Biofilm and Coatings;
- High-entropy alloy;
- Development and exploration of marine resources;
- Development of hydrogen storage materials;
- Preparation processes, microstructure, mechanical behavior, corrosion behavior of alloys;
- Computational design and modeling.
