Paper Title:
Effects of Selected Media on Corrosion Behaviour of Mild Steel
  Abstract

In this study, investigations were carried out on the corrosion behaviour of low carbon steel (mild steel) in the selected media which are cassava extracts, sodium chloride solution (brine), lubricating oil, distilled water and atmospheric air. The test pieces, after chemical analysis were machined to similar dimensions. Each of the specimens was immersed into equal volumes of the selected media except one for the atmospheric air which was placed in the open air. The weight and hardness measurements were carried out every five days for a period of twenty-five days and loss in weight and hardness of the specimens were determined in succession. The results obtained showed that mild steel was more susceptible to corrosion in cassava extracts, sodium chloride and distilled water, than in lubricating oil and atmospheric air. Follow up statistical test results showed that loss in weight is significant for cassava extracts when compared with other media.
