Topics Covered in the course:

  • Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Corrosion
  • Environment Assisted Cracking
  • Passivity and Localized Corrosion
  • Treatment of Data from Corrosion Measurements

Set up of the modules:

Each module is offered either in the mornings or afternoons of the three-day program.  Two modules are offered co-currently during each morning and afternoon session. Attendees may choose to take one module during each  day or  a module in the morning session and in the afternoon of each program day.


This program is taught by Dr. Rudolph Buchheit and Dr. Gerald Frankel from The Fontana Corrosion Center, part of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.
