METL 2441 - Cathodic Protection

4 Credits (3 hrs. lec., 3 hrs. lab.) An in-depth study of corrosion control of buried or submerged metallic structures utilizing both impressed and galvanic cathodic protection systems. Emphasis on regulatory compliance for pipelines and underground storage tanks. Prerequisite: METL 1313  
Course Outcomes
1 - Demonstrate metallic corrosion theory.
2 - Describe the two types of cathodic protection and determine the best design based upon economic considerations.
3 - Demonstrate the ability to operate and maintain cathodic protection instruments. Comprehend pipeline schematics, mapping systems, and other record keeping practices related to cathodic protection.
4 - Identify federal and state rules and regulations which apply to cathodic protection installations.
5 - Troubleshoot cathodic protection systems.
6 - Apply the principles of corrosion to design, operate, and maintain corrosion control systems within the guidelines of a budget.
