Dr. Wu is mainly engaged in investigating degradation behaviors and related mechanisms of metallic structural materials in high temperature high pressure water (below 360oC/20 MPa) and supercritical water (above 374oC/22.1 MPa) environments, whose background is concerned on the safety of nuclear energy and environment. In recent years, remarkable progress has been made on simulating and testing techniques of high temperature high pressure water and supercritical water, on-line electrochemical measurement and analysis in high temperature aqueous environments, degradation behaviors and mechanisms for materials in high temperature high pressure water, as well as collection of basic data, service water chemistry, evaluation models and life prediction for in-service materials in nuclear power plants. A series of equipments have been designed and established to simulate service conditions of structural materials in nuclear power plants, capable of in-situ electrochemical measurement, optical observation, Raman spectra analysis, acoustic emission monitoring and various mechanical tests in high temperature high pressure water environments. Dr. Wu has authored and co-authored more than 225 technical papers in the areas of material corrosion, electrochemical corrosion as well as fabrication, microstructure and mechanical properties of corrosion-resistant alloys, including 93 papers for International Journals and 48 papers for International Conferences. He is holding 14 China invention patents and is applying for another 12 ones, 6 of which have been applied in nuclear industry in China. He has been a commissioner of speciality committee of corrosion resistance of alloys in Chinese Society for Corrosion and Protection since 2001.
