Nanomaterials Webinar - November 5, 2015 Corrosion is a perennial problem that is present everywhere where the thermodynamically favorable process is the creation of rust. Although the mechanism of materials fouling has been understood and is continuously studied, mitigating it has been done in the form of better corrosion resistant alloys (CRAs), coatings, or the outright use of non-metallics. In this webinar, we will examine the basics of corrosion and also methods of mitigating and monitoring it in structures. Questions that will be answered include: What are different classes of corrosion? What are their mechanisms? Is it possible to use better materials with the right cost-performance ratio? How does corrosion impact industries and the GDP of nations?
