Corrosion experiment

  1. Apr 30, 2009 #1

    I need to design an experiment(s) which investigates the factors which effect corrosion, the properties of different alloys used in past and modern industry and the ways in which corrosion may be prevented. This will then be used to make judgments regarding the most effective and economical material for the construction of a marine vessel.

    Any ideas/help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated
    Thank you in Advance.

    One could look at the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE, now NACE International) for ideas.

    There are a broad range of experiments, including galvanic cells and weight gain experiments. For each of these, one can vary the environmental variables, e.g. soluble oxygen, electrical conductivity, pH, temperature, flow rate, in addition to the materials requiring protection.
