Note: as hard as we've tried, it is impossible to perfectly maintain
this file. If you are aware of someone who you think should be included
here, PLEASE let me know. Projects like this are made possible only by
the help and hard work of others. I want to properly credit everyone who
has contributed to this project.
Associate Professor at Center for Electrochemical Science and Engineering,
Department of Materials Science and Engineering at University of Virginia
He is the director of this project since its conception in 1995.
M. L. Reed
He has contributed in the microfabrication of practical crevice corrosion
Dr. Kevin wrote the framework code that is CREVICER. His Ph.D. dissertation
entitled by Intermediate Attack in Crevice Corrosion by Cathodic Focusing
provides the solid foundation for this project. He worked on this project
during 1995-1999. He currently is President of Stewart Technologies in
She was the second developer who improved the solver of CREVICER and also
initiated crevice corrosion experiments using microfabrication techniques.
She also added the aluminum hydrolysis reactions to the code. Her thesis
is entitled by Investigation of Crevice Corrosion Scaling Laws Using Microfabrication
Techniques and Modeling. She worked on this project from 1997-1999. She
is currently working on Wall Street.
Jason S. Lee
Jason was the third developer in Professor Kelly group at UVa. He
extended the experimental work in particular, allowing direct comparisons
of measurement and modeling of crevice corrosion for the first time on
crevices of practical dimensions. His thesis is entitled by Investigation
of Crevice Corrosion Using Computational Modeling and Microfabrication
Techniques. Currently he is a Research Scientist in the Naval Research
Laboratory in Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.
Dr. Chang Lin
Although only with the project for a short time before finding permanent
employment, he successfully developed the first functional GUI for CREVICER.
The GUI is simplified and only allows changes to a small portion of the
parameters of the typical crevice corrosion systems. It is a good start
for a fully functional GUI for CREVICER. Version 0.1.0 contains his GUI.
The new GUI of CREVICER will be developed soon.
Dr. David Wang
He is a postdoctoral research associate with Rob Kelly. He optimized
the work by Dr. Lin and has added more FEM meshes, allowing CREVICER to
be applied to a wider variety of conditions. Currently he is working on
the extension of CREVICER to transport and corrosion in coating systems.
His work will be added to the future CREVICER.
Dr. Francisco J. Presuel-Moreno
He is a postdoctoral research associate with Rob Kelly. He is working
on the extension of CREVICER to the throwing power of cladding system
and hydrogen cracking. His work will be added to the future CREVICER.
