Corrosion: Environments and Industries
Corrosion Rate Probes for Soil Environments
This article explores the use of electrochemical and nonelectrochemical techniques for measuring the corrosion behavior of buried metals and the types of probes used. The electrical resistance technique is the main nonelectrochemical technique used for measuring corrosion rate. The article discusses the electrochemical techniques, such as linear polarization resistance, electrochemical noise, harmonic distortion analysis, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, and hydrogen permeation. The principles of operation for the corrosion measuring techniques are described along with the examples of their use in soils.
