Basic corrosion theory

RISE offers a course in Basic Corrosion Theory for companies. The course is aimed at researchers, engineers, end users, clients, etc. Courses are given online.

Metallic materials are used everywhere in today's society. Thanks to their high strength combined with good shape and weldability and the fact that they can be recycled infinitely make them excellent as a construction material. However, it is important to take into account how the metals are affected by the environment in which they are used, to choose the appropriate material and corrosion protection.

    Target audience

    Researchers, engineers, end users, procurement, etc.

    Korrosion i Infrastruktur

    Metaller finns i de allra flesta byggnader och konstruktioner, som huvudmaterial eller som del i en struktur, exempelvis armeringar i betong. Metaller har oftast en viktig funktion, bärande eller kosmetisk. Ett olämpligt val av ma…

    Atmospheric corrosion

    Endangered structures outdoors include buildings, infrastructure and material in the road environment such as bridges and tunnels and different types of vehicles; cars, boats and aeroplanes. Indoors corrosion affects electronics a…

    Corrosion and cathodic protection in soils

    Corrosion of buried structures and infrastructure produces large costs for society and companies. RISE has extensive experience in this area and in our member research consortium we conduct research in order to explore and find ne…
