This presentation gave at CORROSION 2017, introduces the concept of cathodic protection by distributed sacrificial anodes (DSA), a promising new approach to optimizing external corrosion protection..
This lecture covers the fundamentals of electrochemical corrosion kinetics, concentration and mixed polarization, rotating disc and cylinder electrode techniques, as well as galvanic series.
Part I of this series of lectures covers the fundamentals of electrochemical corrosion kinetics and how to use it to estimate, for example, corrosion rates.
This lecture describes various materials selection and corrosion control strategies for subsea oil and gas production systems. A brief discussion on carbon and low alloy steels as well as corrosion resistance alloys is presented alongside fundamental corrosion concepts.
Does an alternating current or electromagnetic field accelerate corrosion of carbon and low alloy steels? Check our new peer-reviewed article to find out!
Sample sterilization is a crucial step in microbially induced corrosion (MIC) research that is usually overlooked. In this regard, metal sterilization procedures should not alter the surface nor affect the inherent susceptibility of the metal to corrosion while adequately deactivating biological activity. So, are all sterilization methods the same? Do they alter the corrosion response of the sample being investigated?
