This online course teaches about corrosion of metals. The physics of corrosion is explored as a background for the discussion of seven common types of corrosion (uniform, galvanic, crevice, pitting, intergranular, stress corrosion cracking, and dealloying). Students will learn why and how corrosion occurs and methods for controlling corrosion. It includes eleven modules followed by a quiz.
