Prof. Terryn receives American Corrosion Award
Prof. Herman Terryn (VUB) received the "H.H Ulhig Corrosion Award" on 3 October 2017 during the conference of the Electrochemical Society in National Harbor (Washington), for his outstanding research in corrosion of metals that pushes the boundaries of the state-of-the-art.
Prof. Terryn's research focuses mainly on protection mechanisms by applying coatings, as well as predictive modelling of metal corrosion.
H.H. Uhlig (1907-1993), to whom the award is named, was the head of the prestigious corrosion laboratory of MIT. He is generally considered to be one of the founding fathers of local corrosion phenomena.
The SURF group of VUB is active in several SIM programs.
