Classification of Corrosion Failures

Semih Genculu, P.E.

This course will cover the major forms of corrosion accounting for the vast majority of corrosion problems observed, along with several occasionally encountered forms occurring in specific environments. Uniform or general corrosion proceeds independent of the materialís microstructure and component design. It is highly dependent upon the environmental conditions and the materialís composition, generally occurring at a slow rate. All the remaining forms of corrosion are localized, dependent upon the environments, the components and systems designs, and/or the microstructure of the materials. These forms typically produce higher corrosion rates than uniform corrosion, and in some cases can be quite rapid. Each of the various forms of corrosion should be evaluated for a material and environment when designing new systems. The course covers all forms of corrosion observed with some materialsí susceptibilities and general protection schemes for the various forms.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials. otection schemes for the various forms.
