Corrosion: Fundamentals, Testing, and Protection
Simulated Service Testing in Soil
This article describes the test methods for evaluating the durability of a metal in soil. It provides useful information on soil characteristics such as soil electrical resistivity, pH value, and soil texture. Specimen design, preparation, burial, and retrieval techniques are discussed. The type of information sought during soil-induced corrosion evaluation controls the design configuration and the nature of the corrosion measurements. Consideration of these factors during the planning stage helps the corrosion engineer to obtain the maximum amount of information with the minimum number of problems.
