ENGS 138 - Corrosion and Degradation of Materials

Description

This course gives an introduction to the basic principles and applications of corrosion science that underpin extensions to practice. Topics include the thermodynamics and kinetics of electrochemical reactions to the understanding of such corrosion phenomena as passivity, crevice corrosion and pitting, and mechanically assisted corrosion; discussion of methods of corrosion control and prevention; mechanism and application of high-temperature oxidation (dry corrosion); applications to current materials degradation problems in marine environments, petrochemical and metallurgical industries, and energy storage/conversion systems.
