Corrosion and EMF Series

  1. Sep 17, 2005 #1
    Hi Guys!

    im a student of electronics engineering (1st year). I have to prepare notes for my exams about the following topics. Please recommend me some websites from where i can prepare these notes.

    1) Corrosion (Theories, Inhibition and Prevention)
    2) EMF Series
    3) Types of Fuels, Classification of Fossil Fuels

    I would be very thankful to you for this act of kindness.

    Thanks a lot and Good Bye

    you would probably be better off, referring to the engineering subforum

    For information on Corrosion try these sites -



    I think by EMF series, you are referring to Galvanic Series, for which you can search with Google, but here are some examples -

    Note: The order may change in different environments.

    As for fuel classification - I imagine that it would have to do with solid (coal), low pressure liquids (petroleum distillates, e.g. gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene, . . .), pressurized liquids/gases (e.g. propane, butane, LNG), and gases (Natural gas - mostly methane, and some ethane), and oxygenated fuels (e.g. ethanol).

    Try this - http://www.doe.gov/engine/content.do?BT_CODE=FOSSILFUELS

    or search Google for "fossil fuel"
