Corrosion is the degradation of the surface properties, most commonly appearing in metals and alloys, through a chemical and/or electrochemical interaction with the environment, converting matter into a more chemically stable form, such as oxide, hydroxide, or sulfide.
Theory and Application
Corrosion is a surface-originated phenomenon, having though a strong impact on the service life of components and structures. Some of the major parameters affecting the corrosion performance of a surface are its inherent material properties and its potential to passivate, the type and aggressiveness of the environment, the operating temperature, the surface characteristics (roughness, texture, porosity), and the surface condition (manufacturing process, residual stresses) (Schulze et al. 2016; Stergioudi et al. 2016). In most of the used components, the presence of multi-effect...
