Corrosion is a major cause of structural deterioration in the marine/offshore industry. FOr that reason, reliability assessment and maintenance planning of these structures are crucial. In the current work a combination multi-phase phenomenological and mechanistic model for pitting corrosion is tested using Bayesian network (BN) approach.
In this work, the open circuit potential of different stainless steel grades as well as nickel based and copper based alloys has been systematically measured in seawater under different experimental conditions. In particular the effect of temperature, oxygen content and chlorination level have been studied.
