5.1.5   Control of Corrosion


The control of corrosion requires a sound understanding of several factors and the principles associated with those factors, which must be properly applied in order for the control of corrosion to be successful.


Only two factors will be briefly reviewed in this section of the chapter.

1.          Materials Selection

2.          Corrosion Resistance



The following information is intended as a general overview of some of those factors and principles. A detailed discussion is beyond the scope of this program. For those wishing to obtain a more in-depth understanding of corrosion and corrosion protection refer to the section on “Applicable Standards” for further information.
