Materials Science and Engineering Department
Friday 12:20-15:10, NB-06
Application of the thermodynamics and kinetics of electrochemical reactions to the understanding of corrosion phenomena such as oxidation, passivity, stress corrosion cracking, and weld decay. Discussion of methods of corrosion control and prevention including alloy selection, environmental control, cathodic protection and protective coatings. Some treatment of the environmental degradation of ceramics and polymers. Applications to current materials degradation problems in marine environments, petrochemical and metallurgical industries, and energy conversion systems.
