Teaching "design-for-corrosion" to engineering undergraduates: A case study of novel Ni-B coatings for high wear and corrosive applications
This chapter briefly describes the challenges and developments in the field of corrosion focusing on the subject of materials science. A brief introduction was provided on corrosion damage and the importance of its prevention. The fundamentals of corrosion and different forms of corrosion were presented to understand the basics of the subject. By presenting novel Ni-B coatings as a case study, innovative, effective instructional approaches to deal with corrosion were illustrated. After going through this chapter, readers are guided on how to develop student understandings of the fundamentals of materials selection, coating design, and their characterization to combat corrosion. Finally, the chapter also described how the use of modern characterization tools such as AFM and TEM could be innovative powerful tools used in the class/training sessions to build real and clear concepts about materials.
