Corrosion and Corrosion Prevention Training through Real-Life Cases

Purpose of Education

There is a risk of corrosion in any environment where metal and its alloys, which are the basic engineering material, are used. The purpose of this training is to provide the relevant people who have not been trained in corrosion before or who have received very limited training to gain the necessary awareness and knowledge about the basic principles, economic importance and methods of corrosion protection through real examples.

Target of Training

All participants at the end of this training;

  • Will have a clear idea of how and why corrosion occurs,

  • Will have knowledge about thermodynamic and kinetic principles effective on corrosion

  • Will be aware of the economic losses caused by corrosion,

  • Will learn the types of corrosion and the types of damage caused by corrosion,

  • Will be able to learn in atmospheric, subsoil, aqueous environment, concrete the parameters that are effective on corrosion,

  • Will have knowledge about the basic principles of combating corrosion and the applications of these methods,

  • Understand the importance of design in corrosion protection.
