Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Smart Corrosion Coupon

To develop a novel type of smart corrosion coupons using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for continuously real-time wireless monitoring of corrosion. This will combine the advantages of RFID technology and the corrosion coupon so that a better corrosion monitoring method can be realized. The central idea in this project is to create smart corrosion coupons, which can emit signals indicating the corrosion status of the monitored points on demand, by embedding passive RFID tags inside layers of support materials, which act like normal corrosion coupon.
