The Corrosion Research Laboratory provides a state-of-the art environment in which to conduct advanced corrosion research to better understand the principles of corrosion and electrochemistry. The 810 square foot facility is well equipped with the necessary research tools to perform detailed studies and investigation of uniform corrosion, localized corrosion, and (in conjunction with the Fracture Mechanics Laboratory) environmentally-assisted cracking of different materials in different corrosive environments.
The laboratory equipment available for experimental work includes a salt spray system, an accelerated weathering tester, alternate immersion corrosion test stations, Gamry corrosion testing systems, EG & G electrochemical testing systems, and slow strain rate test capabilities.
The laboratory supports faculty research, the Materials Engineering Undergraduate Research Program, and instruction in several courses, including the basic Engineering Materials Laboratory course, Mechanical Behavior of Materials, and Corrosion.
Health and Safety Information- follow safety procedures and dress appropriately for lab (long sleeves, long pants and covered shoes).
