Materials: technology, behaviour, fatigue, corrosion - 2022

Marine corrosion


The purpose of this course is to provide a better understanding of the different types of corrosion of metal alloys used in naval construction or marine environments and to explore the usual protection processes.


The course lasts 5 days (30 hours) and includes 10 lectures.

  • The lectures feature expertise and anti-corrosion measures based on real examples.


The course describes and analyzes the corrosion processes of metal alloys used in the construction of materials that come into contact with seawater or are operated in marine environments, as well as the appropriate protection processes.

This course is intended to make engineers and technicians aware of the problems of corrosion and maintenance of equipment in prolonged service.

It is intended in particular for technical/design staff (equipment design), equipment maintenance services and, in general, for anyone with technical or financial knowledge of the issues related to the use and preservation of these materials.

Lectures are very closely related to the personal experience of the speakers and are designed to allow an exchange of ideas and information with the learners.


Course level:

Basic knowledge of metallurgy and chemistry is required, although a recap of the constitution of alloys and seawater will be provided. The course is accessible to any technician or engineer with a good general education.
