Course materials: Lectures notes and training materials (problems to be solved) will be distributed during the course.

Date: 9th September, 2018 (Sunday)

Duration: 12:00 – 16:00 (4 hours)

Location: Venue

Price: 150 € (entity with a VAT-exempt status)

Course: Electrochemical methods of corrosion research for non-electrochemists

Course chairman: Dr A. Królikowski, Warsaw University of Technology

Duration: 9th September, 2018 (Sunday), time: 12:00 – 16:00

Location: ICE KRAKÓW Congress Centre, ul. Marii Konopnickiej 17, 30-302 Kraków

General: Electrochemical techniques are widely used for corrosion tests in laboratory and field conditions. These are measurements of characteristic potentials, current densities,  impedance parameters and other corrosion related issues. Such methods are used not only in corrosion community but also in material science, electronics and medicine environments.

Aim and content: The objective of the course is to present and discuss information on the electrochemical methods and their applications to various areas of corrosion research. This course aims to survey the bases of these methods and point out main problems in the planning and conducting of electrochemical corrosion tests as well as analysis and interpretation of acquired data. Possible consequences of unsuitable experimental arrangements and interpretation pitfalls are indicated.

Target group: This course is dedicated for graduated students, beginners and more experienced users of electrochemical corrosion tests working in academic or industrial environments. The interest in the verification and expanding their understanding for electrochemical methods used in corrosion research is a prerequisite. The introductory lecture covers necessary background information.
 
Agenda:

  • Bases of electrochemical techniques (DC and AC methods), their attributes, limitations and applications in corrosion research

  • Planning of electrochemical corrosion tests (material susceptibility to various corrosion forms, effectiveness of corrosion protection methods, measurements of corrosion rate), general guidelines for the arrangement of experiment conditions and conducting of the measurements, laboratory versus field tests, examples of unsuitable measures

  • Uncertainty of electrochemical measurement / error analysis  

  • Interpretation of obtained results: pitfalls and transgressions


Mode: Introductory lectures, exercises in small groups on announced problems / practical cases taken from practice and publications, afterward discussion upon proposed solutions and final recapitulation.

Course materials: Lectures notes and training materials (problems to be solved) will be distributed during the course

  Painting control - training for future inspectors

Target group: Corrosion specialists, graduates and students wishing to expand their knowledge of practical anti-corrosion protection practices or individuals planning to become inspectors of anti-corrosion work. This course is also suitable for individuals who want to expand their knowledge and gain practical experience on the topic.

Chairman: Msc Eng. Michał Jaczewski – Polish Corrosion Society, Tikkurila Polska S.A.

Course materials: Lectures and learning modules will be conducted and supervised by the lecturers at the start of the course.

Date: 9th September, 2018 (Sunday)

Duration: 09:00 – 16:00 (7 hours)

Location: Venue

Price: 150 € (entity with a VAT-exempt status)

Course: Painting control - training for future inspectors

Course chairman: Msc Eng. Michał Jaczewski – Polish Corrosion Society, Tikkurila Polska S.A.

​​​​​​Duration: 9th September, 2018 (Sunday), time: 9:00 – 16:00

Location: ICE KRAKÓW Congress Centre, ul. Marii Konopnickiej 17, 30-302 Kraków

Aim: The established guidelines for each stage of administration and their correct fulfilment determines effective anticorrosion protection. The guidelines have been adapted from standards and mutual agreements between the principal and the contractor.

These guidelines summarise:

  • preparation of the surface for painting;

  • effective control of protective coating materials;

  • effective management of application conditions for protective coatings;

  • quality control of coatings.


This course is intended to give participants (students, graduates and industrial professionals) a solid background of standards and methods related to the control of whole surface preparation and application processes. During the course, participants will complete learning modules consisting of all important stages and their effective control, both preceding the application of protective coating as well as management and care of completed anti-corrosion coating.

The course will include an introductory lecture by a very experienced inspector and the individual learning modules will be supervised by outstanding practitioners - FROSIO Inspectors.

Target group: Corrosion specialists, graduates and students wishing to expand their knowledge of practical anti-corrosion protection practices or individuals planning to become inspectors of anti-corrosion work. This course is also suitable for individuals who want to expand their knowledge and gain practical experience on the topic.

Programme*:
