Srdjan Nesic, a Russ Professor, has also been director of the Institute for Corrosion and Multiphase Flow Technology since 2002. Having taught courses related to thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and corrosion, he also been principal adviser for more than 50 master’s and doctoral students.
Nesic’s research lies at the intersection of transport phenomena and electrochemistry, with applications in corrosion and erosion corrosion. Responsible for more than $30 million in external research funding, almost all from private industry, he is author of more than 10 articles in books including the best known corrosion handbooks such as Uhlig's Corrosion Handbook and Shriers's Corrosion, covering acid gas corrosion and erosion corrosion, more than 100 peer-reviewed journal papers, 200 conference papers, and 50 scientific reports in the field of corrosion.
His publications have received over 5000 citations. Nesic, a NACE fellow, serves as associate editor of NACE’s CORROSION journal and Elsevier’s Corrosion Science Journal. He has received numerous awards and honors such as CORROSION journal’s best paper for 2010 and 2015, NACE’s H.H. Uhlig Award for 2007, and British Corrosion Journal’s Bengough award for 1998. His graduate students have won the A.B. Campbell award twice, in 2009 and 2015, for CORROSION journal’s most outstanding manuscript by young authors.
Dr. Nesic also has extensively consulted on corrosion issues for the oil and gas industry, from design to operations to expert witness testimony including the Deepwater Horizon Spill in 2010.
