MECE 6317 Corrosion Engineering

The corrosion phenomena are complex due to the coexistence of electrochemical, metallurgical, biological and environmental parameters which can act at the surfaces. The Corrosion Engineering course will provide an understanding of the mechanisms of corrosion, characterization of the process, protection by coatings and lifetime prediction. The fundamentals of thermodynamics and kinetic concepts will be used to describe destructive chemical interactions of materials with their environment. Particular emphasis will be placed on the identification and solution of practical corrosion problems in real engineering situations.
