Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

  • Selection of an application from a list provided at the introductory lecture

  • Preparation of a report and presentation about the selected application, including:

  • An overview description of the entire process/application

  • Environment, including critical factors

  • How typical environments have changed over the years

  • Goals for the technology in the future (e.g. higher temperatures)

  • Special measures to mitigate corrosion

  • Materials used

  • Reasons for materials choices

Typical failure mechanisms, metallography, what to look for

Intended learning outcomes

For whom:

PhD students in corrosion and materials science.

The aim of the course is to provide insights into corrosion issues in applications of metallic materials, critical environmental parameters, failure mechanisms and materials selection choices. It will be run as an introductory lecture plus 1-2 full days of seminars by the participants  

Course Disposition

  • A written report of 3000-6000 words plus figures.

  • At least 20 references to scientific papers, which are cited in the text and listed at the end

  • An extended summary of 1 page in a provided template, to act as a quick reference document for participants

  • A presentation of 1 hour to be given as part of the course

  • Active participation in discussion of all other cases (full attendance required).

The course will be run with a minimum of 4 students and a maximum of 8 and the presentations will be on one or two days.
