Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

- Understand basic types and processes of corrosion in the field of energy. - To characterize the main methods of corrosion protection in energy systems, especially design of construction materials. - Identify or determine selected parameters and characteristics of corrosion and material protection. - Get an overview of testing, monitoring and assessing corrosion of materials and corrosion protection

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


Basic knowledge of thermodynamics and kinetics of corrosion processes, as well as methods of corrosion protection in the conditions of energy. Local types of corrosion and interaction of mechanical loads. Corrosion processes in gases at higher temperatures and specific types of corrosion in the energy industry. The study of corrosion protection is focused on the choice of suitable material with regard to environmental characteristics and technical requirements. Protective coatings (coatings), environmental treatment, cathodic protection and appropriate design solutions. Standardized procedures for testing, monitoring and assessing corrosion resistance of materials

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Projekty jsou studentům zadávány během přímé výuky a vypracované protokoly mohou studenti odevzdávat osobně nebo zaslat mailem v termínu. Dotazy jsou kladeny studentům při výuce. Průběžné ověření studijních výsledků: - prezenční forma studia: 3 vypracované programy během semestru, 1 písemný test - kombinovaná forma studia: vyřešení zadaných úloh a příkladů. Závěrečné ověření studijních výsledků obou forem studia: - písemná a ústní část zkoušky, rozhodující je písemná část.
