High temperature corrosion and protection

The High Temperature Corrosion and Protection Commission (CHT&P) gathers the organizations and people concerned by the degradation and protection of materials in high temperature environment. The fields of applications include combustion engines, gas turbines for energy transformation or for aeronautics, incinerators, heat exchangers, fuel cells, chemical reactors, nuclear reactors as well as glass, steel and ceramic industries.

The Commission’s objectives are:

  • To answer industrialists’ questions thanks to the experience and knowledge acquired by the members of the Commission;
  • To organize training, summer schools and conferences;
  • To federate the community and improve discussions

The members and actors of the Commission are both teachers-researchers and research engineers regularly invested in High Temperature Corrosion and Protection

Currently, several universities (IJL-Nancy, UTC-Compiègne, ICB-Dijon, Centre des Matériaux des Mines de Paris, SPCTS-Limoges, Lasie-La Rochelle, LCTS-Bordeaux, SIMAP-Grenoble, CIRIMAT-Toulouse, LVEEM-Puy en Velay, SPIN-St Etienne), various public research organizations (CEA-Saclay, ONERA-Chatillon, IFP Energies Nouvelles-Solaize) and several industrialists (Veolia, Total, Aperam, Safran, Air Liquide, Actemium NDT Engineering & Services, Framatome,  Arcelor, …) are involved with the Commission  (http://cefracor-ht.u-clermont1.fr/index.html).

The Commission organizes meetings several times per year to present the progress of the different working groups. The minutes of the meetings are available online, in the members-only area of this website. 

The active working groups of the Commission as well as their leaders are:

  • GT1 : Standardization (S. Bosonnet, CEA-Saclay and D. Monceau, CIRIMAT-Toulouse)
  • GT2 : Hot corrosion (M. Vilasi, IJL-Nancy)
  • GT3 : Corrosion inspection and monitoring (S. Doublet, Air Liquide)
  • GT4 : Continuous training (L. Martinelli, CEA-Saclay and C. Duhamel, ENSMP-Evry)
  • GT5 : Young researchers (C. Pascale, SIMAP-Grenoble and Germain Boisonnet, LaSIE-La Rochelle)
  • GT6 : Corrosion and ageing of High Temperature coatings (F. Rebillat, LCTS-Bordeaux and S. Mathieu, IJL-Nancy)
