Modelling Corrosion and Corrosion Protection
1 hr | Free
Ross Hubble | Applications Engineer | COMSOL
Most corrosion occurs due to electrochemical reaction processes taking place underwater and in wet or humid environments. Modelling corrosion allows engineers and scientists to investigate these processes, gain an understanding of the extent to which corrosion could occur over the lifetime of a structure and implement preventative measures to inhibit electrochemical corrosion, in order to protect their structures. In this presentation, we will discuss some of the benefits of corrosion modelling and what kind of simulations can be performed. We will start out with a brief introduction to corrosion simulations and how the theory can be applied to a simulation in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. After the introduction, we will show a couple of examples within corrosion and corrosion protection. Ross works as an Applications Engineer at COMSOL UK. He graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2010 with a MEng in Chemical Engineering and then carried out his PhD investigating carbon oxide hydrogenation reactions.
