The 12th International Conference on Cycle Chemistry in Fossil and Combined Cycle HRSG Plants was held June 26–28, 2018, in Arlington, Virginia, USA, by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). Pre- and postconference workshops were conducted on cycle chemistry program treatment and optimization and on neutralizing amines and film-forming products (FFP). The conference was attended by more than 130 professionals from 11 countries including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Columbia, Guatemala, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United States.

Between September 2 and 7, 2018, 140 scientists and engineers representing 27 countries convened in Prague, Czech Republic, for the 17th International Conference on the Properties of Water and Steam (ICPWS) and the annual meetings of the IAPWS Executive Committee and Working Groups. The ICPWS conferences began in 1929 in London, United Kingdom, and are typically held every fourth or fifth year in conjunction with the annual IAPWS meetings. The purpose of the conference is to connect scientists with the engineers who use their information, providing the researchers with guidance on useful problems and the engineers with the latest research results.

Flow-accelerated corrosion (FAC) has been researched for over 50 years at many locations around the world, and scientifically all the major influences are well recognized. However, the application of this science and understanding to fossil, combined-cycle/HRSG and nuclear plants has not been entirely satisfactory. Major failures are still occurring and the locations involved are basically the same as they were in the 1980s and 1990s. This paper reviews the latest theory of the major mechanistic aspects and also provides details on the major locations of FAC in plants, the key identifying surface features of single- and two-phase FAC, the cycle chemistries used in the plants and the key monitoring tools to identify the presence of FAC. The management aspects as well as the inspection, predictive and chemistry approaches to arrest FAC are described, and the different approaches that are needed within fossil, HRSG and nuclear plants are delineated.
