Topics: Manufacturing and Materials
The transportation industry, including motor vehicles, aircraft, rail, marine, commercial, off-road and defense vehicles, as well as infrastructures, energy sectors, raw materials, manufacturing, health and food industries all experience significant issues with corrosion which results in billions of dollars of loss each year. Corrosion education and prevention is essential to improve and increase the service life of parts and components which may have a significant impact on the economy of various industries and nations.
The focus of this course will be on the fundamentals of corrosion engineering and corrosion prevention of metallic and alloy structures as well as on non-metallic composites and hybrid materials. Recent challenges and opportunities in corrosion of advanced composites used in the automotive, aerospace, and marine industries as well as for underground structures for oil, gas, geothermal and tidal wave technologies will also be included. Different types of corrosion, methods of corrosion protection and prevention, optimum engineering design of corrosion resistance parts and components, standard corrosion tests, responsibilities of corrosion engineers, and a process for setting-up an advanced corrosion laboratory will be discussed. This course also covers most traditional and non-traditional tests for corrosion studies, including real-time characterization techniques and analysis of corrosion phenomenon and corrosion monitoring principles.
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
This course is designed for engineers working in automotive, commercial vehicle, off-road, aerospace, marine, rail, energy sectors, electronics and related industries who are interested in corrosion and corrosion prevention. Engineers working for chemical companies on the production of corrosion resistive materials and chemicals and scientists working for government and national laboratories working in the area of conservation, national infrastructures, and advanced energy technologies, as well as academicians will benefit from this course.
Individuals should have an engineering or science degree and a basic understanding of electrochemistry.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
