Introduction 1

By the end of this tutorial, you should have an understanding of:

  • relative susceptibility of different metals to corrosion
  • effects of different environments on corrosion
  • corrosion between dissimilar metal contact
  • different methods of corrosion protection

What is corrosion?

Corrosion is the destructive and unintentional degradation of a material caused by its environment.

Unfortunately for metals almost all environments can cause corrosion to some degree, since the corroded state is the more stable state.
