Fundamentals of Corrosion.
Corrosion of metal is a common problem across many industries like power, petrochemical, ship building and marine and fertilizer. Corrosion is often responsible for significant shutdown and maintenance costs. Shutdowns are costly in terms of productivity losses, restart energy, and material costs. Additionally, internal corrosion failures result in contamination of products and process streams, and external corrosion leaks create undesirable safety, personnel, and environmental hazards. These shortcomings could be reduced by improving the capability for engineers to better predict corrosion of alloys in many different conditions
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
-Understand causes of corrosion failure in different industries and suggest suitable methods to minimize it.
-Understand the importance & role of surface modifications to achieve several technological properties.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos,animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should be submitted to GTU.
