Course content

The course has its basis in the masters course TMT4255 Corrosion and Corrosion Protection. The course is given every second year, next time will be 2020/21. Subjects to be discussed in detail will be decided with the participants.
Possible topics include but are not limited to: Low temperature oxidation and passivity, semiconducting and electrochemical properties of passive layers. Localized corrosion: Crevice corrosion and pitting. Effect of microstructure and metallurgical factors: Grain-boundary corrosion, selective corrosion and dealloying, effect of hydrogen in the metal, effect of thermomechanical processing. Mechanical factors: stress corrosion, corrosion fatigue. High temperature corrosion. Effect of environmental factors. Corrosion protection: Design methods for cathodic protection, corrosion inhibitors, chemical processing, coatings and surface treatment. Corrosion properties of metals and materials selection: Steel, light alloys, nickel, titanium and copper alloys. Relevant methods for material characterization and testing. Corrosion monitoring.

Learning outcome

The course has its basis in the masters course TMT4255 Corrosion and Corrosion Protection. It is organized in the form of advanced seminars for studying and in depth analyses of current issues in corrosion science and engineering. It is intended to give the candidates a general background about the recent problem areas, opportunities and advances in the field by going through research papers selected from the subjects listed under "Academic content", taking into account the individual interests of the participating students in the field. The student is encouraged to take part in the critical discussion of the papers in class to develop skills in problem solving and innovative thinking in the field of corrosion science.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures, seminars, discussions and self study. Optional problem sets.
Work load ca. 200 hours during the two semesters.

Further on evaluation

Oral exam in the form of a discussion of fundamental topics in corrosion research.

Required previous knowledge

The course is based on the basic undergraduate and MSc-level education in corrosion and materials science at the department or corresponding background.

Course materials

Selected articles and book chapters from the corrosion literature.
