Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to handle cases of material failure by corrosion in a proper way, classify them according to the fundamental corrosion mechanisms and define the probable causes for the failure.

Subject of course

Three areas of materials Basic failing caused by corrosion can be distinguished: 1. Electrochemical corrosion in aqueous electrolyte. 2. High temperature corrosion by hot gases. 3. Combined mechanical and chemical surface attack called wear, erosion and cavitation. The basic knowledge for the different reasons of failing and the testing methods will be discussed. For selected cases of damage the various test methods will be demonstrated.

Teaching methods

Presentation of the contents by ppt, the files being available to the students in TISS. Free questioning by the students as well as questions to the auditorium by the lecturers. Presentation of representative samples
