Professor Ronald M. Latanision’s research centered on materials processing and the corrosion of metals and other materials in aqueous environments. Studies included the behavior of nickel-base alloys exposed to mechanical loading conditions in light-water reactors and water systems and photoelectrochemical studies of the electronic structure of thin anodic passive films on metal substrates. Professor Latanision was the director of The H.H. Uhlig Corrosion Laboratory in DMSE and led the School of Engineering’s Materials Processing Center as its director from 1985 to 1991.
