Dr. Barry Gideon
B.Eng. (Metallurgy), RMIT University, Australia
Ph.D., RMIT University, Australia
Dr. Gideon has more than twenty years experience in welding engineering, corrosion and non-destructive testing on various alloys including austenitic, ferritic, martensitic, duplex stainless steel, inconel, incoloy, hastelloy and other nickel alloys, monel (copper-nickel alloys), stellite (cobalt-tungsten alloys) and various grades of carbon steel.
Most of his consulting activities are centred on the areas of material selection for sour and non-sour service, development
of automatic and manual welding processes, selection of destructive and non-destructive programs as well as development of Management Systems (ISO9001, ISO14001 & OHSAS18001) for the oil and gas industry.
Clients include; Apache, Maersk, Shell, Exxon-Mobil, Chevron, PTT, Petronas, BP, Pertamina and numerous Installation and EPC Contractors for onshore and offshore projects in Asia Pacific and Middle East region.
Dr. Liam Ward
B.Sc (honours) Chemical Physics, University of Kent, UK
Ph.D., University of Northumbria at Newcastle, UK
Dr. Ward has 25 years experience in the Surface Engineering and Corrosion, most of his consulting activities are centred on the areas of metallurgical engineering and advanced materials.
In particular, focusing around aspects of wear behaviour of hard metal nitride coatings and the resultant effect of modifying the surface using ion implantation techniques.
Clients include Australian Institute Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE)
on ion implantation facilities, wear testing facilities and surface analytical facilities located within Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) Lucas Heights, NSW. Many of the research programs have been in collaboration with numerous industries in the areas of metallurgy, coatings, automotive and aerospace.
Current collaborative ongoing research is with Defence, Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) and Australian Nuclear Science and Technology organisation (ANSTO).
Dr. John Pearce
B.Sc. (1st class honours) in Metallurgy, University of Aston, U.K.
Ph.D. in “Wear of Abrasion Resistant Materials”, University of Aston, UK.
Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (FIMMM).
Chartered Engineer (C.Eng).
Dr. Pearce has forty years of experience in industrial R & D, lecturing, training and consultancy in metallurgy and foundry technology much of his work involves the characterization of structure-properties-service performance relationships in highly alloyed steels and cast irons for applications requiring corrosion, wear and/or heat resistance.
Consultancy experience includes both long and short term projects. In long terms projects his responsibility has centered on preparation, management and delivery of tailor made technical training and improvement programms for both UK and overseas organizations.
Examples include: metallurgy and corrosion training for technical staff from desalination plants and the oil/chemical industry in Bahrain, Dubai, Qatar, Libya and Saudi Arabia; castings production and quality assurance training for technical staff from industry in Iran, Pakistan, Poland, Turkey and Venezuela etc.
Example of shorter term projects include failure analysis, solving casting and heat treatment problems, applications of SPC and FMEA in manufacturing, technical auditing of casting producers, etc. Current research interests include electron microscopy of duplex stainless steels, high Mn steels and high Cr cast irons.
