Nuclear waste storage and GDF environments

In situ time-dependent characterisation of corrosion processes in nuclear waste storage and GDF environments

Managing radioactive nuclear waste through long-term geological disposal with safe interim storage above ground

Project date: 
Saturday, October 1, 2011 to Tuesday, March 31, 2015



Dr Dirk Engelberg

Dr Engelberg’s research group focuses on the development of multi-scale assessment approaches for the prediction, simulation and mitigation of environment-assisted degradation of stainless alloys in nuclear plant, radwaste and oil & gas environment. Dr. Engelberg has broad expertise in metallurgy, microstructure and grain boundary engineering, electrochemistry, and the application of in-situ characterisation techniques, including x-ray computed tomography, image analysis, and 2D/3D image and volume correlation.
