Annotation -
Prerequisites for the subject are courses Physical chemistry and Thermodynamics of materials, knowledge is replenished for the field of metallurgy. Thermodynamics and kinetics of metallurgical processes will be discussed. The part focused on corrosion starts from characterization of conductivity, electrolyte behaviour and electrode equilibrium. Discussion of mixed potential theory, description of general corrosion processes together with available experimental techniques make the knowledge deeper in this field.
