Nature of Chemical Corrosion-RC

Member $195 / Non-member $295

Description:
This workshop will present the vast and complex effects of corrosion upon Utility operations, infrastructure and equipment e.g., ductile iron, pre-stressed concrete pipe, valves and water storage containment of scale.  Present the types of corrosion; chemical, stress-flexure, weathering-atmospheric, microbiological and environment (aerobic/anaerobic).  Detail the electrochemical reactions of corrosion, conditions and agents which accelerate or mitigate material decomposition including passivation, scaling.  Present the galvanic electro potentials (nobility) of alloys and metals as well the chemical resistivity and susceptibility of elastomers and ceramic coatings.  Describe the pertinent basic equations of electricity:  resistance, current and potential (Nernst Energy EQN).  Depict the typical corrosive galvanic cells incidental or at risk to the water utility industry.  Impart the methods and details of protection against corrosion:  coating, inhibition and cathodic (sacrificial anodes).  Exhibit the compatibility, suitability, selection and inspection methods of construction materials;  stainless steels, alloys (brass), plastics (epoxy, urethane), etc.  Display the comparative methods to assess the benefits, costs-liabilities and economics of corrosion:  prevention, control and mitigation.  Offer straightforward methods for deriving cost estimates to fiscally assess and compare corrosion control options, i.e., Annualized Life Cost from capital investment, O&M to salvage.
