Course content

Metallographic sample preparation and microstructural examination using optical microscope of steels, brasses, aluminum alloys, titanium alloys. Potential and pH measurements; weight loss measurements; determination of electrochemical kinetic parameters (Tafel extrapolation), passivity and pitting studies; illustration of role of inhibitors, galvanic corrosion, intergranualr corrosion tests: ASTM A 262 A and EPR techniques; Demonstration of stress corrosion cracking tests : U-bend, slow strains rate and constant load tests. High temperature oxidation kinetics of Cu, steel & SS at 500oC; characterization of oxide layers using optical, SEM/EDS (surface morphology & cross-section); study of bimetallic diffusion couples. Surface preparation and application of paint coatings; characterization: thickness, impact, hardness, adhesion and corrosion performance evaluation using salt spray, UV-weatherometer and EIS.
