Personal profile


Prof Scenini, holds an MEng in mechanical engineering from the Politecnico di Milano (IT), an MSc in corrosion at UMIST and a PhD in environmentally assisted cracking at the University of Manchester. He is currently a Professor at the Materials Performance Centre at the University of Manchester and he is an internationally recognised research scientist in materials performance and corrosion, undertaking impactful research with real-world applications, of particular relevance to the Energy and Advanced Materials Performance research beacons. He currently leads the Materials Performance Centre theme “Environmental Effects on Reactor Plant Materials” within the Materials Performance Centre at the University of Manchester and also leads the High-Pressure High-Temperature sub-theme within the Henry Royce Institute.

His current research interests are in material performance issues such as corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, fatigue and fracture, and hydrogen embrittlement particularly of the stainless steels and nickel base alloys employed in nuclear power plants and aerospace industry. He has authored over 100 publications between journals and peer reviewed conference proceeding.
