John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
This course provides painting guidance to engineering, operations, maintenance, and construction personnel and other individuals responsible for the protection of structures based on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Engineer Manual on Painting - New Construction And Maintenance. It gives broad-base instructions on corrosion and corrosion protection using protective coating and state-of-the-art procedures that can be employed on Corps and other civil projects, which can aid in attaining better and, from a long-range viewpoint, more economical paint jobs. Although this manual is not intended to be a general textbook on coatings and coatings application, the complexity of the modern coatings field justifies something more than a bare, utilitarian approach to the presentation of useful information. Therefore, moderately detailed discussions of coating materials and characteristics of applied coating systems are included, even though their immediate usefulness may not be apparent to those who are interested only in "practical" information. Materials such as galvanizing, metallizing, and protective tapes are also discussed even though they are not commonly considered paints or coatings. The inclusion of these subjects illustrates that the protection of metal surfaces cannot logically be divided into precise, independent subjects. Because this manual will be used extensively as a reference it includes a complete topic index to facilitate locating specific information. In addition, Appendices will help locate references to particular standard specifications. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
