Course on corrosion

Introductory Course on the Corrosion of Metals and Alloys
16-17 April

This new two-day course from International Academic Projects,
Introduction to the Corrosion of Metals and Alloys, to be held in
London, 16-17 April 2013 aims to provide participants with a solid
theoretical basis in corrosion science. Corrosion as a chemical
process is introduced very simply but builds eventually to the
notion of electrochemical corrosion of metals in "cells", the
concept of electrode potentials and how they can help characterize a
material's corrosion behaviour.

Participants will learn to recognize the difference between crevice
and stress corrosion, or intergrannular and pitting corrosion, and
the differences in susceptibility of different classes of metals and
alloys. Practical examples will be used in the course, with
opportunities for optical examination and discussion of
observations. A brief overview of corrosion control and mitigation
methods will also be given.

The course will be taught by Adam Wojcik, Senior Lecturer in
Mechanical Engineering, University College London


Number of participants: 10
Price: 245.00 GBP/ $375.00
