Role of Films in Erosion-Corrosion

  • Bruce D. Craig


Erosion-corrosion is often defined as the accelerated attack of a metal due to the relative motion between a corrosive fluid and the metal surface. The corrosive fluid need not be limited to aqueous solution but may include gases, organic fluids, molten salts, and liquid metals. Likewise, combinations of these fluids can induce other forms of erosion. For example, gases in liquid can create cavitation damage, liquid in gases can cause liquid drop impingement, and solids in gases or liquids can cause abrasion.
