Corrosion and Electrochemistry Laboratory

This lab was established to investigate the electrochemical processes that drive corrosion at elevated temperatures. A particular emphasis is placed on the chemical and electrochemical processes associated with corrosion processes, such as localized corrosion and stress-assisted corrosion cracking. Special equipment is used to examine processes in molten salts that range from low melting point noxious fluoride salts to high temperature metal chloride salts.
