Corrosion Division

established April 15, 1942

The Corrosion Division was established to organize and promote formal and informal discussions, both oral and written, associated with the behavior of materials in such environments that cause corrosion, oxidation, and related surface reactions. It strives to provide the means for corrosion scientists and engineers to meet and discuss common problems in the hope of advancing research, education, and training in the important field of corrosion.

The Division sponsors symposia at both the spring and fall ECS meetings, encourages the publication of proceedings, gives several major awards for research in the field of corrosion, and has input into several ECS awards as well as fellowships. In general, the Division helps with the recognition of scientists, both established and beginning, who have done distinguished research in the field of corrosion or who show real potential for doing such work. It also organizes the Corrosion Monograph Series, i.e., books which outline and review the present scientific status in the many areas of corrosion science. The Division uses its financial resources to help advance the study (and alleviation) of corrosion problems in reasonable ways.

The Corrosion Division Luncheon and Business Meeting, held in conjunction with the fall ECS meeting, offers the opportunity for all Division members to hear firsthand about both past and future events directly from members of the Executive Committee; and to bring up matters for discussion which are of interest to the membership. Election of the Executive Committee also takes place at this meeting every other year.
