Evaluating/estimating corrosion test specimen

Current situation

  • The specimen is iron steel that is new with no corrosion.
  • At first, the specimen needs to be corroded.
  • the second step is to find a scientific way to know how much corrosion has been left on the surface of the specimen.


There are a lot of obstacles and disadvantages in the situation:

  1. How to corrode specimen in order to get a homogeneous rust layer on the surface of the specimen.
  2. How to estimate the amount of corrosion left on the specimen after using the dust remover.

Problem statement

Due to the lack of sophisticated technology in the laboratory and the unwillingness to buy new technology, the problem must be solved with a current and logical solution it does not cost money.

Success criteria

It will be known if the project is successful if the results match the expectations.

I am a bit puzzled about how the SFM tool was used. I find it interesting and I wonder what was the target of that. https://hub.priz.guru/project/2344/tools?tp=1#tool-3536

In past decades, polymeric micropillar devices have gained a great deal of attention in micro and nano technology research as the result of their potential and practical usage in many applications. This project is going to deal with the process of how to fabricate the magnetic micropillars, from the beginning – the planning and design, improving the existing process, lithography to create the base silicon mold and then creating the PDMS pillars that contains nano magnetic particles of Fe_3 O_4, the process today is not efficient enough in terms of cost and time and we are wishing to improve it, in the end we will have a device with micro-pillars that can move correspondingly to external magnetic field which will help us to do many advanced experiments in the biology field like using the device for cell stimulation.

Chilled water is used for production equipment cooling. Suddenly pH of the water started to drop. The aim of the project is to analyze the issue, understand the root cause, and propose solutions to the problem.
