I have a problem that I need to solve that is quite extensive it boils down to this. I have a steel vat thats been plated with zinc and its being used to store sulfuric acid. I have to find corrosion rates, heat transfer and thermal stresses, elastic and plastic deformation problems, hydrogen build up and diffusion, and the amount of time till the thing finally fails and steel meets acid. My teacher was horrible I have no idea where to start and this seems like an unreasonable assignment since it accounts for half of my grade and I have 2 days. Any suggestions hints or links to sights that explain the concepts herein would be appreciated.
