Back to Events Calendar

Join us for a live webinar to explore the capabilities of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software for modeling corrosion and predicting the long-term growth of corrosion pits.

In this webinar, you will get an introduction to the Corrosion Module, an add-on to the COMSOL Multiphysics® simulation software that offers specialized functionality for modeling corrosion processes. Additionally, Dr. Sunil Kumar Thamida of Indian Institute of Technology Tirupati will discuss his work on simulating uniform corrosion as a moving boundary problem. This session will showcase how to simulate corrosion in both two- and three-dimensional structures, including the implementation of lattice models of alloy structures.

You will also see simulation examples of large structures such as ships, submarines, and offshore structures immersed in salt water. Finally, Dr. Thamida will discuss the simulation of the corrosion rate and deep pit formation in metal alloys by incorporating macroscopic properties correlated to microstructures.
