Adrien Barroux

Originally from the Paris region, I undertook studies in physics and chemistry at the university of Evry-Val-d'Essonne (France). I graduated a license degree in physics and chemistry which allowed me to continue in Master 1 degree in inorganic chemistry at the University of Orsay (an integral part of Université Paris-Saclay). It was during the Master 2 degree that I made my career move towards materials science at the National Institute of Nuclear Sciences and Techniques (INSTN) of CEA Saclay. I discovered the corrosion of metallic materials during my Master 2 internship implemented on additive manufactured metallic parts; initiated by the CETIM and carried out at the CIRIMAT laboratory in Toulouse (France). This internship was a preliminary study of a larger project on the corrosion behaviour of 17-4PH stainless steel parts in relation to their microstructure. Following this internship, I took part in a research project on the study of the influence of additive manufacturing parameters on the properties of laser beam melted 17¬4PH stainless steel specimens (microstructure, mechanical properties, roughness, etc.). This study, through the partnership CETIM / CIRIMAT, enabled to establish the main axes of two PhD thesis which were focused on the corrosion behaviour for first one and on the stress corrosion cracking and the sensibility to hydrogen embrittlement for the second. My PhD thesis was then initiated to continue and deepen the promising work done during the internship. This CIFRE PhD thesis resulted from the collaboration of CIRIMAT and CETIM which started in 2018 and defended in 2021 entitled " Correlation between the microstructure and corrosion behaviour of 17-4PH stainless steel fabricated by laser beam melting". The main results of the two PhD thesis performed are presented during this symposium. I am now a corrosion engineer for metallic materials at the CETIM on the Nantes site (France), where I reinforced the corrosion team within the Matériaux Métalliques et Surfaces (MMS) division. I am responsible of the monitoring of R&D projects attached to the study of the corrosion properties of metallic materials, the failure analysis and the expertise of damages related to corrosion issues, as well setting up tests for exploring corrosion resistance by electrochemical way or immersion in simulated condition. Finally, I will participate in the development, implementation and operation of a tailor-made corrosion test machine linked to the ambitions of CETIM to develop its expertise and knowledge on the corrosion degradation of metallic materials in their real environment.
