Shengqi Zhou received his BSc in Chemical Engineering in 1981 (Hunan University, China), MSc in Electrochemistry in 1984 (Cangchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academia of Science) and PhD in Material Science in 1991 (University of Newcastle upon Tyne). Since he joined NPL in 1996, Shengqi has been involved in various projects, including:
- Measurement of environment induced crack growth rates in the short crack regime
- Transition of pitting to cracking in disc and blade steels
- Environment assisted cracking of steam turbine disc and blade steels
- Corrosion and stress corrosion cracking of duplex stainless steels
- Application of neural networks to duplex stainless steel database
- SCC of duplex stainless steels under evaporative conditions
- Impact of temperature transients on SCC of 316/321 stainless steels
- Electrocatalytic activity mapping of model fuel cell catalyst films using scanning electrochemical microscopy
- Electrochemical metrology at the nanoscale
Shengqi is the author or co-author of about 80 academic publications.
Shengqi has a background in electrochemistry and material science and his primary interest is corrosion science and engineering.
