RELEVANCE OF THE INDUCTION / REFRESHER PROGRAMME
Surface Engineering is the sub-discipline of Mechanical Engineering. The surface phase of a solid interacts with the surrounding environment and this interaction can degrade the surface phase over time. Environmental degradation of the surface phase over time can be caused by wear, corrosion, fatigue and creep. Corrosion of metals costs approximately Rs. 24000 crores (Rs. 240000 million) to India due to materials corrosion in building structures, bridges, chemical plants, offshore platforms, power plants, ships, pipe lines for transportation of hydrocarbon, electrical and electronics components as reported in IIM Metal News. It is estimated that corrosion-related costs can be reduced more than 30% by development and use of better corrosion control technologies. Corrosion control measures include corrosion inhibitors, cathodic protection and coatings. Therefore, the development of wear and corrosion protection systems is a very important topic from both engineering and an economic perspective.
