Corrosion and Multiphase Technology


Location and Current Use

The Corrosion and Multiphase Technology building is located on West State Street, at coordinates C-1 on the campus map. It is marked as # 153 on the map. The building houses the Institute for Corrosion and Multiphase Technology, which currently includes three main Joint Industry Projects or "JIPs."

The facility is the largest research facility of its kind in the world, with nine large-scale flow loops in operation. These large-scale flow loops are ideal for various research projects and enable researchers to deal with a wide variety of research requests. Corrosion engineers from around the globe look to the ICMT to provide them with information and corrosion prediction tools to meet the demands of their business. These engineers also act as representatives from sponsor companies which fund specific projects and pay annual membership fees to be privy to the results of the Institute's research, and to provide direct guidance on industrial needs.


History of the Building

The Corrosion and Multiphase Technology building was constructed in 1997 at a cost of two million dollars. In 1999, Institute status was granted by OU as an umbrella organization for three centers which focus on research topics related to internal pipeline corrosion and multiphase flow characterization.
