Corrosion: Fundamentals, Testing, and Protection
The article provides an introduction on the importance of alloying elements on corrosion behavior of nickel alloys and describes the applications of heat-resistant alloys to resist corrosion. It focuses on the metallurgical effects, mainly the effect of internal factors, including chemical composition and microstructure of the alloy, and the external factors, including electrolyte composition, temperature, and electrode potential, on the corrosion behavior of corrosion-resistant alloys. The article also discusses the implication of changing the alloy microstructure by second-phase precipitation, cold working, and cast and wrought forms on the corrosion behavior of high-nickel alloys.
