Corrosion and Deterioration Prevention Techniques

OnDemand Webinar (106 minutes)

Gain an understanding of the mechanisms that cause corrosion, why they occur, and the techniques to design against it.According to a National Survey in 2002, the annual costs of corrosion to U.S. industry are nearly $300 billion. Corrosion often occurs due to poor understanding of corrosion engineering and the selection of cheaper options in the original design. However, it can cost over ten times more to repair corrosion than to incorporate a corrosion-resistant design into the original structure. This topic will explain the fundamental mechanisms that cause corrosion, and why they occur in different environments. Techniques to design against corrosion will be explained including corrosion resistant alloys and coatings solutions. Quality control methods such as standards, codes, and inspection techniques will be discussed. This information is useful for anyone that designs, fabricates or owns structures that can experience corrosion and ensure that with proper planning, corrosion-related costs are minimized.
