The course on Corrosion Science & Corrosion Control for Infrastructure (CSC2I) is an interdisciplinary course, encompassing fundamental aspects of corrosion science & technology, corrosion control and materials’ science for civil engineering.
The course targets material classes as metals & alloys, concrete, coatings & composites. Corrosion-induced degradation and corrosion protection for main infrastructure will be discussed, including steel structures, with an emphasis on reinforced concrete structures.
In view of the broad and challenging world of Corrosion Science & Technology, especially considering the scope and reach of infrastructure-related phenomena, The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at TU Delft offers this annual course as an alliance of lectures and practical sessions. The course encompasses theoretical background and fundamental knowledge in electrochemistry in view of metals’ corrosion, together with hands-on sessions – intensive practical sessions on corrosion knowledge application (lab and semi-field).
- gain knowledge and understanding of corrosion and corrosion control, linked to major durability challenges for the corrosion and civil engineering practice,
- have the chance to acquire a glance of the variety of methods and techniques for corrosion assessment and control,
- familiarise themselves with the necessary expertise and knowledge, required for a proper choice of main (construction) materials and their utilization with respect to infrastructure durability and service life.
