Title: Our "Iron Pillar Way" of Knowledge Management for Corrosion Control in India.


The Iron Pillar of India has withstood corrosion for over 1,600 years in the open air. But the present position on corrosion problems faced by many industries in India seems to be a disturbing fact. Considering the complex nature of corrosion management analysis, knowledge sharing between individuals and the network of various agencies throughout the world is essential. This paper presents a framework designed to set up Knowledge Management electronic platform for innovation and building bridges between professionals, technologies and management systems. "We CAN control corrosion in India" is an example knowledge management networking group launched on Linkedin, a social networking site available in public domain for exchange of knowledge and views, to establish global level multi-dimensional communication pathways (Technology Providers-Technology Users-Academic and Research Institutions-Professional Associations-Legislation Support) and guide professionals from various disciplines and other technology groups to network with the best knowledge source for corrosion management. This paper highlights the efforts taken by the corrosion technology networking group to support the initiatives of global indian knowledge connection platform created by the government agencies and the corrosion control efforts of various agencies in India.

Landmark lifeline across Hooghly chewed up by Gutkha - Spit eats into base of bridge


Spit-o-cracy is threatening the safety of Howrah bridge with the daily onslaught of gutkha spat out by pedestrians corroding the protective hoods at the base of its pillars.

Officials of Calcutta Port Trust, the custodian of the 67-year-old bridge that bears the weight of over a lakh vehicles every day, said the commuters’ collective spit power had reduced the thickness of the steel hoods protecting the pillars from six to three millimetre since 2007.

How can Howrah bridge be saved from gutkha spit? Tell ttmetro@abpmail.com
