An Investigative Approach to Study the Corrosion Response of Copper–Brass TIG Welded Samples Using Nitric Acid as the Corroding Agent
The work intends to study the behavior of a unique blend of the welded sample, joined through a couple of welding techniques, against corrosion attack initiated by an acid as the corroding agent with different exposure times and acid concentrations. The corrosion aspects of copper–brass weldments against nitric acid have been the focal point of our paper. The authors have extensively elaborated on the analysis factors used for the study through the introduction section. The literature review helped us to engage in the study covering the fundamental aspects. In this research article, we have attempted to study the response of a copper–brass alloy combination, welded with two different techniques of TIG welding—ATIG and PCTIG— against nitric acid as the corrosive agent. The corrosion rate is determined by the method of mass loss or weight loss method.
