Metallurgy and Materials Science - MET 272

Corrosion Testing

3 Credit Hours
2 Lecture Hours
2 Laboratory Hours

Course Description

This course introduces basic electrochemistry and the eight forms of corrosion. Laboratory instruction in standard immersion, atmospheric, cabinet and other corrosion test and analysis methods is provided.

Prerequisites

(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)

Course Competencies

Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • Demonstrate practical corrosion testing laboratory skills based on standard industry practices.
  • Demonstrate corrosion testing laboratory citizenship skills (safety consciousness, quality focus, teamwork, ethical behavior).
  • Demonstrate laboratory notebook and report writing skills.
  • Explore the electrochemical theory of corrosion.
  • Compare and contrast the eight forms of corrosion from a mechanistic perspective.
  • Compare and contrast anodic and cathodic reactions.
  • Explore passivity of metals.
  • Demonstrate practical immersion corrosion testing based on standard industry practices.
  • Demonstrate practical cabinet corrosion testing based on standard industry practices.
  • Demonstrate practical atmospheric corrosion testing based on standard industry practices.
  • Demonstrate practical crevice corrosion testing based on standard industry practices.
