Open Access research that helps to deliver "better medicines"...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), a major research centre in Scotland and amongst the UK's top schools of pharmacy.

Research at SIPBS includes the "New medicines", "Better medicines" and "Better use of medicines" research groups. Together their research explores multidisciplinary approaches to improve understanding of fundamental bioscience and identify novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions, investigation of the development and manufacture of drug substances and products, and harnessing Scotland's rich health informatics datasets to inform stratified medicine approaches and investigate the impact of public health interventions.

Abstract

The effects of pre-oxidation of Incoloy 8OOH and Inconel 738 as a Possible protective measure in reducing erosion-corrosion of the underlying alloy at temperatures up to 700-degrees-C have been investigated under conditions of moderate particle velocities and high particle loadings. This research also included assessment of the variation of erosion-corrosion with impact angle and alloy hot hardness. The results showed that the pre-formed scale exerted negligible effect on the erosion-corrosion of the substrate under these conditions. There were no significant differences between the wastage rates of the pre-oxidized and the as received alloys as the temperature was increased. The variation of erosion rate with impact angle followed the classical ductile mode at high temperatures. The reasons why preoxidation is ineffective under these conditions are discussed in terms of existing knowledge of erosion-corrosion in similar conditions.
