[Workshop] Corrosion Engineering for Industrial Professionals

[Workshop] Corrosion Engineering for Industrial Professionals

Course overview

Singapore is situated in a tropical climate set up. Typically, tropical climate causes long-period of elevated temperature, relative humidity (RH), and frequent monsoon rainfalls. In combination with airborne salinity, tropical countries like Singapore usually experience severe corrosion of steel/metallic structures used as part of their business activities. Corrosion can affect the integrity of pipelines and storage tanks used in the industry for transportation and storage of various energy resources, such as oil and natural gas leading to leaks, compromising the efficiency and safety of these systems.

In the renewable energy sector, corrosion can impact the durability of materials used, such as wind turbines and solar panels. Regular maintenance and replacement of corroded components can result in increased energy production costs. The main industrial sectors in Singapore are chemical, petroleum, oil, and gas along with other precision manufacturing industries such as pharmaceutical, electronics and semiconductor industries, which uses high-end expensive equipment susceptible to different types of corrosion and resulting the industry losing millions of dollars either for the maintenance or replacement of the concerned equipment.

This two-day course aims to help the industrial professionals to achieve a good understanding of the fundamental concepts of engineering corrosion for taking appropriate technical actions in terms of prevention and rectification of corrosion related issues in their respective industries.

1) Dr. Jahangeer K. Abdul Halim a registered Professional Engineer (Mechanical) with the Professional Engineer Board Singapore, graduated with a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Mechanical Engineering from National University of Singapore in 1998. Dr. Jahangeer’s areas of specialisation include air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation systems, combined heat and power systems, steam technologies, steam turbines and boiler systems, compressed air system optimisation, data centre, building energy simulation and energy optimisation. He is an independent Energy Efficiency Opportunities Assessor (EEOA) and SCEM (Singapore Certified Energy Manager). He is also a Senior Member of Institution of Engineers Singapore (IES) since 1999.

Currently, Dr Jahangeer is the Managing Director of Energy Conservation Singapore Pte Ltd. (National Environment Agency (NEA) accredited energy consultancy) providing consultancy services for mechanical and energy Systems including large scale trigeneration systems, boilers, corrosion consultancy and compressed air systems. Dr Jahangeer has also been providing training for local and international practising engineers from the mechanical and energy services sector including the Singapore Certified Energy Manager (SCEM) professional candidates. He along with his colleague has already trained about 2000 industrial professionals as Singapore Certified Energy Managers (SCEMs) since the inception of the SCEM.

2) Professor Manoj Gupta was a former Head of Materials Division of the Mechanical Engineering Department and Director designate of Materials Science and Engineering Initiative at NUS, Singapore. He did his Ph.D. from University of California, Irvine, USA (1992), and postdoctoral research at University of Alberta, Canada (1992). He is currently among top 0.6 per cent researchers as per Stanford’ List, among Top 1 per cent Scientist of the World Position by The Universal Scientific Education and Research Network and among 1 per cent among scientists as per ResearchGate. To his credit are: (i) Disintegrated Melt Deposition technique, (ii) Hybrid Microwave Sintering technique, an energy efficient solid-state processing method and (iii) Turning-induced deformation technique to synthesise alloys/micro/nanocomposites. He has published over 685 peer reviewed journal papers and owns two US patents and two Trade Secrets. His current h-index is 832, citations greater than 255000 and reads greater than 100,000 (Research Gate). He has also co-authored eight books, published by John Wiley, Springer and MRF - USA. A multiple award winner, he actively collaborate/visit Japan, France, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, China, USA and India as a visiting researcher, professor and chair professor.
