Corrosion and Mass Transfer in Liquid Sodium as A Function of The Chemical Composition of The Surface of Austenitic Steels and Alloys
During the exposure of austenitic steels and alloys in high- temperature sodium, we can observe not only weight changes but also changes in the composition of the surface concentration of main and minor alloying elements. These changes result from the selective extraction of elements, from the diffusion and mass transfer of alloying elements, or from the production of scales and deposits. The knowledge of these changes allows a better understanding of the corrosion mechanism and of the mass transfer in austenitic steels and alloys in liquid sodium.
