I request all members to assist our network to identify and document the corrosion management problems in India. These problems may come from your direct experience, research proceedings, industrial news and public news.
Our network has an immense potential to collaborate and contribute for resolving corrosion management challenges in India. These challenges in corrosion science and engineering will be linked to engineering applications in order to focus research and development efforts.
I would like to invite Prof TKG to moderate this discussion.
I have provided a sample news: Public Water Distribution Systems in India - Where do we stand for identifying the causes for leakage?
Several efforts have been taken to arrest leaks, quantify leaks, replace valves and pipes, and restore water supply. But there is no effort taken to study the cause of leakage. Below clippings show the seriousness of such problems and alarm authorities to widen their focus on identifying the causes for failures and finding proper control measures.
Surat - Bharuch Nagarpalika stops water supply after pipeline leak
Nagpur - No water for two days in north-east-and-south.
Bangalore - Problem galore for Defence Colony residents - Water Contamination
Kolkata - Water-supply-hit-after-pipe-leak
Mumbai - BMC installs Rs 80 cr flow meters on city pipelines soon to tackle leaks and water wastage.
Chennai - Of the nearly 1,400-km-long pipeline network, a stretch of 466-km long pipeline detected with leaks was replaced.
