Numerical Study of Impressed Current Systems and Applications in Ship Building
DescriptionCorrosion engineering is an interdisciplinary science involving many fields such as electrochemistry, metallurgy, and material science. When a metal is placed in a corrosive environment (electrolyte), it tends to ionize and dissolve in the electrolyte. The corrosion process can be significantly weakened by using an impressed current protection system. The mathematical model of impressed current systems can be described by an elliptic partial differential equation with certain linear and nonlinear boundary conditions. In this project, the investigators will study numerical methods for impressed current systems and related inverse/control problems arising from the corrosion engineering to achieve an optimal protection and a precise prediction of corrosion.
