Investigation of Flow Accelerated Corrosion Models to Predict the Corrosion Behavior of Coated Carbon Steels in Secondary Piping Systems
To investigate various methods to mitigate flow accelerated corrosion of carbon steels, we have deposited various metallic and composite coatings on the surface of carbon steels and tested their performance by exploiting flow accelerated corrosion (FAC) simulation experiments. From the results, we found that both Ni-P/TiO2 composite coating and Fe-based amorphous metallic coating exhibited outstanding FAC resistance thus they are expected to expand the life-time of secondary systems of nuclear power plants. Furthermore, to investigate their life-time in nuclear power plants, we investigated known mechanistic models and commercial models of FAC and imported the parameters of the coated carbon steels into the models.
