    with steel. Steel contains iron which can easily be corroded. Corrosion is the deterioration of a metal due to chemical reactions involving the metal and its surrounding environment. There are many types of corrosion but the main form of it is rust. Rust only occurs in iron, however, other metals do oxidise. Rust is the oxidisation of iron, this is when oxygen and water combine to form iron oxide which is also known as rust. Corrosion involves a metal atom being oxidised, whereby it loses one or

    Corrosion is the deterioration and undesirable scale formation in metal by either chemical attack or reaction with its environment. Corrosion control of metals involves technical, economical, environmental, and aesthetical significance. The use of corrosion inhibitors constitutes one of the most economical ways to protect metal surfaces against corrosion and preserve industrial facilities [1, 2]. The study of corrosion of mild steel is a subject of incredible theoretical and practical interest and

    Corrosion is defined as a slow deterioration by being eaten or worn away; this can pertain to the mental corrosion of the mind state as a result of war. What will be seen or done in the war has crippling ramifications as more soldiers are surfacing with the fractured mental state. Rat Kiley experienced the dismantling of his mind. As a medic, he has seen the horrors of the Vietnam War, yet the death and medical procedures slowly weighed on him physically and mentally. To the point of a schizophrenic

    1 INTRODUCTION Corrosion is a natural process, from which a modified material will either break down into a more basic state or be broken down (Gundiler et al, 2000). The process causes undesirable traits in the product which may range from a change in appearance to failure of structures. The effect of corrosion as addressed by Ahmad (2006) costs many billions to governments, as an outcomeindustry has developed many ways to combat corrosion. Combating corrosion can be done though two methods, by

    What Is Corrosion? Corrosion may be defined as the deterioration of a material due to a reaction with the environment around it. Metals corrode because we use them in environments that are chemically unstable. Very few metal are found in nature in their metallic state such as copper, gold and silver . All other metals are processed from minerals or ores into metals which are innately unstable in their environments. These unstable metals have a tendency to revert to their more stable mineral forms

    2.2.5 INTERNAL CORROSIONS Pipe wall is exposed to water and contaminants in the gas, such as O2, H2S, CO2, or chlorides can lead to corrosion on the internal wall of hydrocarbon process systems. The nature and extent of the corrosion destruction that may occur are functions of the concentration and particular combinations of these various corrosive elements within the pipe, as well as of the operating conditions of the pipeline. For example, corrosion damage may occur from effect of gas velocity

    Corrosion Corrosion is caused by the degradation or the deterioration of metals. It usually occurs when a chemical reaction takes place within the metal from its surroundings. Corrosion mainly occurs in metals but there is a possibility of other materials being able to corrode or disintegrate. It is an oxidation reaction. Metals such as iron and steel corrode but non-reactive metals do not corrode. These consist of: • Gold • Platinum • Mercury Corrosion is an electrochemical reaction, just like

    Haneler Corrosion on Mechanical Properties Introduction Corrosion can take place on many different materials ranging from metal, being one of the more common materials to corrode, to some ceramics and polymers. Corrosion is typically an electrochemical reaction that takes place with the material being degraded as it reacts with its surrounding environment. When this reaction takes place, the metal gives up electrons which aids in the rust and oxidation formed on the metal. Corrosion usually takes

    maintenance issues: Corrosion is one of the grave threat to the oil and gas industry including Shell Petrochemicals. Many companies have lost several billions of dollars because of this issue. Many pipelines of oil companies have ruptured due to corrosion and oil spillages have experienced which have created environmental pollution. The occurrence of corrosion has created a lot of concern to petroleum, chemical, mechanical engineers and chemists. The most common form of corrosion in the oil and gas

    Corrosion Audit 1.Introduction: Corrosion is the electrochemical deterioration of a metal because of its chemical reaction with the surrounding environment. While new and better materials are continuously being developed, this progress is offset, in part, by a more aggressive operational environment. This problem is compounded by the fact that corrosion is a complex phenomenon. It can take many different forms and the resistance of materials to corrosion can drastically change with
