Capabilities and Laboratory Facilities

Research activities of the Corrosion and Materials Chemistry Research Laboratory (CMCRL) at the School of Materials Science and Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology are focused on corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, high temperature oxidation, and other forms of environmentally induced degradation of metallic materials. Analytical and characterization tools needed for corrosion research are either available in our laboratory or in the School of Materials Science and Engineering at GaTech. Software for thermochemical calculations is used for thermodynamic predictions and modeling of corrosion processes. CMCRL at Georgia Tech is equipped with following test facilities:

  1. Electrochemical Tests for Corrosion and Surface Chemistry:
    1. Potentiodynamic polarization
    2. Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS)
    3. Cyclic Voltammetery
    4. Electrochemical Noise measurements
    5. 3 Gamry potentiostats, 5 Wenking  Potentiostats and 1 EG&G PAR potentiostat
  2. Temperature controlled facilities for aqueous corrosion and electrochemical measurements.
  3. Autoclaves for High temperature aqueous corrosion tests up to 450°F.
  4. Five Slow Strain Rate Test rigs for room temperature and high temperature stress corrosion cracking tests at temperatures up to 350°C.
  5. Corrosion Fatigue test facility (MTS Model 810 machine with Teststar II® control system with environmental chamber) for crack growth and endurance limit study
  6. Thermogravimetric microbalances for high temperature gaseous corrosion testing.
  7. High Temperature Oxidation/Sulfidation of Metallic Alloys: single and mixed gases over a range of temperatures, cyclic gases, and cyclic temperature capabilities. (up to 1100°C)
  8. Molten salt Corrosion test equipment.
  9. Heat treatment furnaces with inert atmosphere capability (up to 1300°C)
  10. Metallography and Image analysis equipment.
  11. Microhardness measurements
  12. Laser Raman Spectroscopy
  13. Full access to ICP, XRD, FTIR, UV, and SEM-EDS and other chemical and surface characterization tools through IPST analytical laboratory and GT nano-characterization center in the IPST building.
