This is a North Scottish Branch event organised and run by our North Scottish Branch for its members. Other members and non-members are welcome to join us.
Overview: This talk on Hydrogen Embrittlement by TWI's Mike Dodge will consider some of the challenges and opportunities presented when working with nickel alloys in this context.
The talk will start at 6pm and will be preceded by the Branch AGM which starts at 5:30pm
Speaker: Mike Dodge (Principal Project Leader, TWI)
Speaker Biography: Mike first joined TWI approximately ten years ago, whilst working towards a PhD on hydrogen embrittlement. His thesis, entitled ‘The Effect of Heat Treatment on the Embrittlement of Dissimilar Welded Joints’, furthered the understanding of hydrogen-assisted cracking mechanisms in dissimilar metal welds.
Mike now works as a Principal Project Leader and metallurgist at TWI. His role involves managing confidential projects for TWI’s members within the oil and gas, defence, aerospace, automotive, and nuclear sectors. He has a particular interest in the performance of non-ferrous alloys and is currently involved in projects assessing how nickel alloys perform in different environments, including gaseous hydrogen, seawater with cathodic protection, and sour solutions.
Mike is also a lecturer on TWI’s failure investigation course and has been involved in over 50 failure investigations, ranging from 1” corrosion resistant alloy tubes to catastrophic rupture of large bore pipelines. Mike uses the lessons learned during these investigations to supplement workshops and training courses for TWI’s Members and partner universities.
