To understand the fundamentals of material failure at normal and plant operating condition and why different material behave differently - strategic maintenance methods.
To understand how plant aging can cause catastrophic failures and the methodology of inspection.
Importance of monitoring and modern methods.
Case studies from plant failures and failure analysis to reinforce understanding of theory.
To understand corrosion in other structural materials as concrete fiberglass and nonmetals.


Candidates who intends taking certification- For those interested in learning fitness for service of plant and equipment- for Managers and staff interested in health safety and environment of unintended plant failure-for planning Managers interested in MRO and plant maintenance and know all about inspection and monitoring This five day intensive Short Course is intended for Engineers, Technicians, Managers, Supervisors, Salespersons, Inspectors, Anyone needing a basic understanding of corrosion.




The need for corrosion awareness
The cost of corrosion

Why metals and materials deteriorate
The impact of environment
The school textbook definition of corrosion
The modern definition of corrosion
The atomic theory
Setting up a corrosion cell in the lab.

Why different materials react in different ways and rates
More definitions of corrosion – spontaneous, unseen, irreversible
The mistaken common notion, anode, cathode
Polarization – the slowing down process
Tafel’s slope – a clue to control corrosion

Understanding corrosion – forms – causes –soil, water ,bacteria, atmosphere, gases and vapours, and steam-operating conditions as pressure, temperature, velocity, stress, product input variations.
Avoidance and control of each – explained through
Case studies.

Four-way method of controlling corrosion
What is cathodic protection – how it works – principles
Typical examples of CP
The galvanic and impressed.
The components

Coating – types

  • limitations
  • failure and detection
  • how it works with CP

Inhibitors - types

Pre & Post Tests will be conducted
Case Studies, Group Exercises, Group Discussions, Last Day Review & Assessments will be carried out.


Define Management Consultancy & Training Certificate of course completion will be issued to all attendees.


A highly interactive combination of lectures and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information and knowledge transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions, and motivate everybody find the right answers. You will also be encouraged to raise your own questions and to share in the development of the right answers using your own analysis and experiences. Tests of multiple-choice type will be made available on daily basis to examine the effectiveness of delivering the course.
Very useful Course Materials will be given.
