Description: The three main global challenges for the twenty - first century are energy, water,
and air — that is, sufficient energy to ensure a reasonable standard of living,
clean water to drink, and clean air to breathe. The ability to manage corrosion
is a central part of using materials effectively and efficiently to meet these
challenges. For example, oil and natural gas are transmitted across continents
using high - pressure steel pipelines that must operate for decades without
failure, so that neither the groundwater nor the air is unnecessarily polluted.
In design, operation, and maintenance of nuclear power plants, management
of corrosion are critical. The reliability of materials used in nuclear waste disposal
must be sufficient so that that the safety of future generations is not
compromised.
Materials reliability is becoming ever more important in our society, particularly
in view of the liability issues that develop when reliability is not assured,
safety is compromised, and failure occurs. Notwithstanding the many years over
which university, college, and continuing education courses in corrosion have
been available, high - profile corrosion failures continue to take place. Although
the teaching of corrosion should not be regarded as a dismal failure, it has certainly
not been a stellar success providing all engineers and technologists a basic
minimum “ literacy level ” in corrosion that would be sufficient to ensure reliability
and prevent failures.
