Analysis of the influence of elastic deformation on the electrode potential of a metal cylinder in a medium

  • M. H. Stashchuk


We propose a new efficient procedure for the determination of the shift of the electrode potential on the boundary of an active medium with the surface of a stretched metal cylinder and determine the distributions of the electric potentials inside the cylinder, over its surface, and in the medium. We also establish the formulas for the evaluation of the electrode potential depending on the level of mechanical stresses and compute its values for copper and steel specimens.
