Learn the basics of corrosion engineering while enjoying the game.
Build your industrial complex and protect it from corrosion with your choice of combating technologies. Optimize your earnings and use your money to build more structures. Be proactive as some random events can either help you – or undo all your hard work.
CorrSim is a single-player, turn-based, computer simulation intended to teach students the environmental factors that cause corrosion on man-made structures, the consequences on the economy and what can be done to protect the aforementioned structures.
The fully interactive simulator uses research based on game development, combining basic corrosion and corrosion protection principles with graphics and animations, in order to create an experience that is both engaging and effective. It can be played online as a Facebook application, and can also be downloaded as an iPad application.
In this day and age where gaming goes beyond entertainment and the social networks and mobile devices platforms are being utilized for education, CorrSim is a great way to reach out to the public and push awareness about this insidious phenomenon. The visual representation of the stages of material degradation correlating with the in-game structures’ capacity to earn virtual money, which the user can accumulate and spend to build more structures, imprints upon him the economic impact of corrosion. The selection of corrosion protection methods and their respective consequences in terms of cost and durability ensures that the basic principles will be retained in the user’s mind and encourages him to do further research on the subject.
Awareness always comes before relevant action, and CorrSim will help build a more widespread interest in studying materials and chemical engineering and in exploring careers that are involved in developing future corrosion-combating technologies.
