This book describes the work performed to develop a new test methodology to characterise the susceptibility of stainless steels to crevice corrosion in natural and treated seawaters. It also describes the experimental procedures to perform crevice corrosion testing.
1. Crevice corrosion from a historical perspective 2. Objectives and background 3. Laboratory calibration 4. Crevice formers for specimens of plate material 5. Crevice corrosion testing of tubes 6. Formulation of new synthetic seawater for aerobic environments 7. Simulation of anaerobic environments 8. Synergy of aerobic and anaerobic conditions 9. Electrochemical simulation of aerobic environments with or without chlorine 10. Proficiency of crevice corrosion methods: Inter-comparison tests
