Unformatted text preview: M E 349 CORROSION ENGINEERING SPRING 2010 UNIQUE NUMBER: 18290 INSTRUCTOR: PROFESSOR HAROVEL G. WHEAT ETC 9.174, ETC 5.222, 471-1451, [email protected] TIME: MWF 11:00-12:00 noon PLACE: ETC 2.114 OFFICE HOURS: MW 1:30-4:30 P.M. (AND BY APPOINTMENT) ETC 5.222 OBJECTIVES: This course provides an introduction to the principles of electrochemistry as well as the essential elements of electrochemical corrosion. This introduction is followed by development of the thermodynamic and kinetic aspects of electrochemistry, including potential-pH (Pourbaix) diagrams, mixed potential theory, and the theory and application of passivity. The goal is to provide a foundation for understanding the forms of corrosion, the mechanisms of corrosion, electrochemical methods to study and measure corrosion, and the principles and methods leading to mitigation of corrosion problems that might occur in engineering practice. COURSE DESCRIPTION: Corrosion principles; electrochemical, environmental, and metallurgical effects; types of corrosion; corrosion testing and prevention; modern theories: principles and applications. PREREQUISITES: For Engr Majors, ME 311 or equivalent with a grade of at least C, ME 326 (or 326H) with a grade of at least C, and admission to Major Sequence in Engr; For NonEngr Majors, Upper Division Standing and written consent of instructor.
