    Corrosion

    Published: June 01, 2008
    Authors: F.C. Campbell, Editor

    Corrosion is the gradual degradation of a material due to the environment. In fact, the word corrode is derived from the Latin corrodere, which means "to gnaw to pieces.

    Forms of Corrosion

    Published: 2002

    CORROSION is the electrochemical reaction of a material and its environment. This article addresses those forms of corrosion that contribute directly to the failure of metal parts or that render them susceptible to failure by some other mechanism. In particular, mechanisms of corrosive attack for specific forms of corrosion are described.

    Corrosion Testing

    Published: August 01, 1999
    Authors: J.R. Davis, Editor

    Standardized tests for determining the susceptibility of aluminum alloys to specific forms of corrosion are the focus of this chapter. Table 1 lists applicable ASTM standards for corrosion testing of aluminum.

    Corrosion Types

    Published: December 01, 2008
    Authors: Michael F. McGuire

    Stainless steel is unusual among alloy systems in that its corrosion resistance derives from the passivating ability of a minor constituent, chromium.

    Corrosion of Generators

    Published: 2006
    Authors: William G. Moore, National Electric Coil

    A SIGNIFICANT DISCOVERY in the corrosion of generators occurred in the 1990s-crevice-corrosion cracking in water-cooled generators. Before delving into crevice-corrosion cracking, however, this article reviews the generator industry experience with stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) of 18Mn-5Cr alloy retaining rings.

    Fundamentals of Corrosion

    Published: July 08, 2015

    Billions of dollars are spent annually for the replacement of corroded structures, machinery, and components. Premature failure of bridges or structures due to corrosion can also result in human injury, loss of life, and collateral damage.

    Corrosion of Intermetallics

    Published: 2005
    Authors: P.K. Datta, H.L. Du, and J.S. Burnell-Gray, Advanced Materials Research Institute, Northumbria University, United Kingdom, R.E. Ricker, National Institute of Standards and Technology

    IN MANY APPLICATIONS of structural materials-aerospace, automobiles, power generation-increasing demands are being made for materials with temperature capabilities greater than those of superalloys. Intermetallics with higher melting points can replace superalloys with inadequate melting points (Ref, Ref, Ref).

    Localized Corrosion

    Published: July 01, 2000
    Authors: E.E. Stansbury and R.A. Buchanan

    A concept of uniform corrosion should be defined as a basis to which localized corrosion can be compared. Idealized uniform corrosion occurs when the flux of metal ions from the surface and the flux of cathodic reactants to the surface are uniform to atomic dimensions.

    Galvanic Corrosion

    Published: 2003
    Authors: Robert Baboian, RB Corrosion Service

    GALVANIC CORROSION occurs when a metal or alloy is electrically coupled to another metal or conducting nonmetal in the same electrolyte.
