 Course Overview

Corrosion is a disease to materials just like a disease to human beings. Some types or forms of corrosion can be prevented through good practices in materials selection and design, while others can be cured or controlled if diagnosed early. Corrosion diagnosis involves a number of destructive and non-destructive inspection and examination techniques such as visual, NDT/NDE, inspection, chemical, electrochemical, mechanical, metallurgical,  and microstructural tests and analyses. Unexpected corrosion failures can be avoided through corrosion inspection, corrosion monitoring, and corrosion testing. This corrosion short course aims to present to the technologists and engineers a dozen of corrosion testing and monitoring techniques that can be used to solve many of their most tedious and persistent corrosion problems. This corrosion course will provide the participants with a thorough understanding of the basic principles and the practical applications of some simple yet powerful techniques in corrosion testing and monitoring. For each technique, a step by step guide for performing the corrosion measurements will be described. This 5-day course (with practical session) provides an excellent avenue for corrosion practitioners, researchers, designers, technical managers, inspection and maintenance engineers, quality control personnel and those involved in failure analysis to update their appreciation of modern techniques for corrosion testing and monitoring.

 

This corrosion short course can be taken as in-house training course, online course and distance learning course worldwide. It can also be customized to meet the specific needs of your organization.

 Course Outline
 

This corrosion short course covers a wide range of corrosion testing and monitoring techniques from conventional weight loss coupons, electrical resistance (ER) and linear polarization resistance (LPR) to advanced electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) for routine applications such as rapid screening of corrosion inhibitors, materials selection, failure analysis, corrosion rate measurement, life prediction, evaluation of paints, coatings, electroplating, on-line monitoring of industrial processes, determination of resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion, and the degree of sensitization of stainless steels and alloys.

 In-House Training Corrosion Courses

 

If you are concerned with corrosion in your business, in-house training is a great solution to train a group of employees from design, production, operation, quality assurance, inspection and maintenance, and technical sales and support on corrosion control and corrosion prevention technology. The contents of all corrosion courses can be customized to fit your organization's needs.

 

There is no minimum or maximum number of participants required for in-house training corrosion courses. We conduct the in-house training corrosion course at your company's premises and at a time convenient to your company. Requests for in-house training corrosion courses from overseas countries are also welcome.
