Corrosion & Metallurgy

Applied Modern Corrosion Techniques Testing, Monitoring, Protection and Prevention

Introduction

This comprehensive corrosion course consists of several modules covering virtually every aspect of corrosion. The course is structured in a flexible modular format so that beginners will establish a strong foothold from the basic modules dealing with the necessary concepts and principles before taking advanced topics, while advanced participants will be able to go through specific modules of their interest. The smooth integration of the modules provides an excellent avenue for corrosion practitioners, designers, technical managers, inspection and maintenance engineers, technicians, quality control personnel and those involved in failure analysis to update their appreciation of corrosion and the awareness of the emerging technologies for corrosion control, prevention, testing, and monitoring.


Objectives

Upon the successful completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Have a good background on metallurgy and ferrous metals
  • Become familiar with the classification and heat treatment of steels
  • Know the basics of corrosion chemistry
  • Be familiar with the main corrosion mechanisms occurring in oil and gas production and processing systems
  • Recognize the different types of damage caused by corrosion
  • Get deeper into materials selection for corrosion prevention
  • Discuss different forms of corrosion (mechanisms, recognition, and prevention)
  • Know some advantages and disadvantages of the various corrosion monitoring methods
  • Know corrosion monitoring, choices of metallurgy, and prevention
  • Be familiar with current corrosion control techniques will be reviewed, along with current methods
  • Be familiar with modern corrosion testing, protection, and monitoring techniques
  • Increase awareness on the different damage and failure mechanisms and be familiar with the methods of failure prevention and inspection
