Corrosion of Aluminum and Aluminum Alloys
Chapter 6: Erosion, Cavitation, Impingement, and Fretting Corrosion
This chapter explains how mechanical processes, including erosion, cavitation, impingement, and fretting, contribute to the effects of corrosion in aluminum alloys. It describes the two main types of erosion-corrosion and the factors involved in cavitation and liquid impingement erosion along with testing and prevention methods. It also provides information on fretting corrosion and fretting fatigue.
