This book marks an important contribution to the understanding of hydrodynamic factors in corrosion processes. It demonstrates scale testing that simulates hydrodynamic conditions existing in process equipment. The metal, a 90:10 Cu-Ni alloy, was tested in a flowing 1-M NaCl solution at 25 °C. The pH and oxygen contents of the solution varied along with the hydrodynamic conditions.
This book features the latest international developments on the generation of relevant materials and properties data based on laboratory tests and methodologies for the evaluation and assessment of environmentally assisted cracking in equipment and structures exposed to corrosive service environments.
