Tiered Course Indicator

Atmospheric Corrosion is an in-depth survey of the experimental and theoretical studies of atmospheric corrosion, which has been called "the most visible of all corrosion processes," even though the atmosphere itself is often hard to see. Atmospheric Corrosion (referred to in syllabus materials as "AC") has been reported to account for more failures in terms of cost and tonnage than any other type of material degradation processes. This course covers / identifies the main factors that cause Atmospheric Corrosion, methods of monitoring the elements that influence corrosion rates, and systems to control the corrosivity of material surfaces.
