The proper design to minimize corrosion is as important as the selection of materials. In many structures, a lack of design consideration given to corrosion control is the weakest link in corrosion control. Designers should have skills to determine the mechanical properties and strength required to ensure that a structure is resistant to corrosion. A background and solid understanding of the corrosion process is important as well. While selecting materials, the designer has to consider the particular environment, use, and the corrosion control parameters. These include….click here to read more about improving design to help control corrosion.
